NEW ROCHELLE, NY – The James Plevritis-Joseph C. Keane Evzone Chapter #405 in partnership with the Ladies Philoptochos Society of Holy Trinity Church, had the honor of presenting $1,000 in Stop and Shop grocery cards to the Veterans Association of Westchester County on November 13. Ladies Philoptochos President Elizabeth Zoulis, along with AHEPA Chapter President Harry Fotiadis, presented the food cards to Retired United States Army Colonel Richard Gulley, of the American Legion of New Rochelle, Post 8, Veterans of Foreign Wars. The presentation occurred at the end of the liturgy and was presided over by Rev. Fr. Demetrios Balidis of Holy Trinity Church.
The Chapter’s tradition of honoring all Veterans of its community, both living and deceased was a beautiful display upon the Solea of the Church. An added highlight was the presentation of a book to former Chapter President of 27 years, Joseph C. Keane, which was about the Service Dog which the Chapter purchased in his honor for the Service Dogs for Warriors Program and named Keane.
