Hellenic Link of NJ Honors Polos

 

NEW YORK –  Hellenic Link of New Jersey honored the only Greek-American elected official of New Jersey, James Pollos, Freeholder of Middlesex County.

Dr. Panos Stavrianidis, the president of Hellenic Link, presented Polos a plaque in recognition of his outstanding service as a public servant, community leader, and as a successful businessman, role model, father and husband.

He was also cited as an invaluable Hellene who is extremely proud of his heritage.

The successful event was attended by some of the most prominent Greek-Americans of New Jersey who came to honor with their presence a third generation Hellene who is well connected in the political life of New Jersey but even more so with the state’s Hellenic Community.

Judge Marina Corodemus and Savas Tsivicos, President of the Hellenic Federation of New Jersey, were called to the podium to offer greetings and Archimandrite Fr. George Nikas read a message from His Eminence Metropolitan Evangelos of New Jersey.

Stavrianidis, in his introduction of Polos, expressed his admiration for the latter’s service to the Greek American community and his ability to maintain a good balance between his political, business and family life.

“Jim is just as comfortable on the stage making a political speech as he is in the kitchen with his apron behind the scenes cooking for our annual church festival and other events,” Stavrianidis said. “His biggest treasure and accomplishment though, is his wonderful family – his lovely wife Rita and his three most beautiful daughters, Sophia, Angela and Nicolette.”

Polos was recently made an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

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.
