In a Challenging Year, AHEPA Port Jefferson 319 Produces Results

PORT JEFFERSON, NY – AHEPA Chapter 319 held its first monthly business meeting in Port Jefferson on January 7 during which the members also cut the Vasilopita. Chapter President Nicholas Calogredes, was blessed with the lucky coin, and the chapter members wish him good luck for the year to extend to his family and the Chapter!

Though 2020 was a challenging year for the whole world and for Chapter 319 as well, as President Calogredes reviewed the Chapter’s accomplishments for 2020, it was also a year of progress and advancement which included the following initiatives:

  • Providing masks and gloves to the church community for protection against COVID-19
  • Launching a scholarship for students at Stony Brook University’s Hellenic Studies Program
  • Annual Fishing Trip Fundraiser
  • California Wildfire Donation
  • Launching the Greek Food to the Hungry program
  • Development of the AHEPA Trifold Brochure to help attract new members

The Chapter goal for 2021 is to increase their members’ participation and expand the Chapter with more members in order to do more to pursue AHEPA’s mission of philanthropy, education, and promoting and preserving the Hellenic identity of Greek Americans.

AHEPA Chapter 319 wishes everybody a fulfilling, productive, safe, and Happy New Year in 2021!
