WEST NYACK, NY – The George Chirgotis AHEPA Chapter 455 Annual Christmas Dinner was finally held after a two-year hiatus on December 16. The Ahepans celebrated with family and friends and were honored with the presence of District 6 Governor Dean Moskos and his wife Stephanie. Moskos thanked the chapter and Fr. Nicholas Samaras along with the parish of Saints Constantine and Helen in West Nyack for participating and making the Saint Basil Academy Christmas event very successful.
The evening was filled with fun, laughter, and good food. This year’s event took place at New 304 Diner, where they provided a private room, great food and great service. The Chapter presented Past President George P. Hanos with the Recognition Award for Outstanding Service and Dedication to the Ideals of Hellenism, Family and Individual Excellence.
The Chapter said in a statement via email: “It was a wonderful evening and it would not have been made possible without our AHEPA brothers and their families, who took time out of their busy life to give back to the Greek Culture, Education and Traditions for our current and future generations. Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!”
