ASTORIA – AHEPA Hermes Chapter 186 held its first Christmas/New Year’s Networking Event on December 30. The party was at Selo Restaurant, 33-05 Broadway in Astoria. The members and guests enjoyed a mix of traditional Croatian, Serbian, and Balkan cuisine with a modern twist.
The chapter thanked the proprietor, Elvis Tominovic, also a chapter member, for the wonderful evening. They made some new friends from the Babylon chapter who joined the event and all got to spend some quality time with their families.
Chapter President, Billy Chrissochos, whose family was in attendance as well, gave some warm holiday greetings and reminded everyone that the famous Hermes 186 Tsipouro Night will be held at Selo in February. AHEPA District 6 Secretary George Zouvelos was also among those present. The chapter encouraged everyone to “please stay tuned for more business, cultural, and philanthropic events coming soon, too.”
