January 24, 2020

STONY BROOK, NY – AHEPA Chapters 319 of Port Jefferson and Shrine 500 of Greenlawn held a joint initiation ceremony on December 19 at the Holiday Inn Express in Stony Brook. The event, with strong attendance from both chapters’ leadership, as well as AHEPA District 6 leadership, welcomed eager new initiates to spur the values of AHEPA well into 2020 and further towards the goal of 100,000 members by 2022.

The inspirational evening began with a social cocktail hour and mezedes and continued with speeches and anecdotes from District 6 Lt. Governor Dean Moskos, Past District Governor Demi Pamboukes, and Chapter 319 member Constantine P. Kapassakis. Better sentiments could not have been expressed as these chapters, with the seasoned guidance of District 6 and the Supreme Lodge, help carry the torch of AHEPA’s values into the new decade.

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.
