George Papaeleas AHEPA Chapter 367 Moves Forward

NEW YORK – George Papaeleas AHEPA Chapter 367 of Washington Heights held a monthly meeting on October 4 virtually via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The chapter was named after the founder. Established on February 1, 1950, the chapter celebrated its 70th anniversary this year.

The chapter normally meets at St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church, 124 Wadsworth Avenue in Manhattan, and has added three new members over the year. Among the items discussed were the national incentive to enlist new members before the end of the year along with ways members could keep in touch with both national and District 6 during this difficult period. This included e-mails and virtual district meetings along with panel discussions. They will continue to hold virtual meetings for the foreseeable future. The chapter was happy to welcome Rev. Fr. George Kazoulis, the new Parish Priest at St. Spyridon, for his first chapter meeting and look forward to welcoming him into the organization as a new member.

Along with Fr. Kazoulis, also in attendance was District 6 Secretary Chris Pappis. The unanimously re-elected officers for 2020-2021 are President and Secretary George Chokos, Vice President George Patsalos, and Treasurer George Tsikalas.
