Hudson Odysseus AHEPA 545 Celebrates March 25th, Zito Hellas!

MIDDLETOWN, NY – On March 25, Hudson Odysseus AHEPA Chapter 545 of Middletown held a local celebration for the 200th anniversary of the start of the Greek War of Independence. The chapter members as well as the Holy Cross Greek School met at the church to place Greek and American flags, 200 hundred of which were made by the Greek School under the direction of Demetra Pavlidis, on the grounds leading up to the entrance of Holy Cross Church.

A large Greek flag was also temporarily secured to the canopy of the church entrance and served as a backdrop while all those present enthusiastically sang the Greek National Anthem. Approximately fifteen people were able to attend the event. The Chapter expressed a heartfelt thank you to all those who were in attendance.

The AHEPA brothers of Hudson Odysseus Chapter 545 are planning to organize continued Hellenic and broader philhellenic community celebrations of Greek Independence and Freedom throughout the year. “Please invite friends and neighbors to join us,” the Chapter said via email.

ZITO HELLAS!

ZITO GREEK INDEPENDENCE AND FREEDOM!
