Hudson Odysseus AHEPA Chapter 545 Moving Forward

October 7, 2019

MIDDLETOWN, NY – Hudson Odysseus Chapter 545 in Middletown, NY has been moving ahead, expanding its membership, and raising money for the Greek School at the Middletown Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church. The relatively new chapter has entered its second year of existence.

During their first year, they concentrated on adding to their membership, and began to raise funds for the purchase of needed AHEPA materials and raising money for the church’s Greek School. The goal was to raise enough funds to cover the cost of Greek School tuition for the students with the intent that this would increase enrollment and help teach our kids the value of Hellenism and their Greek heritage. The chapter was able to present the Greek School with a check towards achieving this purpose.

Chapter 545 is currently exploring ideas for fundraisers targeting both the Greek and non-Greek communities, which include a Taverna Cigar Night, another Glendi, and a Pony Ride/Petting Zoo event. Planning ahead, the chapter is looking forward to hosting another bus trip to next year’s Greek Independence Day Parade which will hopefully include the chapter members and any interested parishioners from Holy Cross in addition to other local Greek churches.

Hudson Odysseus AHEPA Chapter 545 Secretary Tony Vikos presented a plaque to Past President Chris Pavlidis in appreciation for his service to the chapter as the founding president, and for all the work he did to successfully establish the chapter.

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.
