Democrats Abroad – Greece Celebrate the 4th with Fun and Fireworks on Athens Riviera

ATHENS – More than 100 American expats in Athens had the full Fourth of July experience thanks to Democrats Abroad-Greece on the beach at ENOA, the Hellenic Nautical Club of Greek-Egyptians.

Democrats Abroad is the official arm of the Democratic Party for American citizens living outside the United States. The group encourages American citizens to register to vote in U.S. elections and to obtain their absentee ballots, a serious year-round task for its dedicated volunteers, but the order of the day on the Fourth of July was fellowship fueled by burgers, beer, deserts and more, and a fine fireworks display.

Guest of all ages enjoyed old and new friends. There was a pinata for the children and native Greek pianist/vocalist Mari Papardaki rocked the rock favorites.

The guests were welcomed by local chairperson Karen Lee and she introduced recent college graduate Emma Janisis-Hensley. Her moving reading of the Declaration of Independence was followed by everyone singing the American and the Greek national anthems.


OSLO, Norway — A gunman opened fire in Oslo's night-life district early Saturday, killing two people and leaving 10 seriously wounded in what police are investigating as a possible terrorist attack during the Norwegian capital's annual Pride festival.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
