Port Jefferson 319 Awarded AHEPA District 6 Chapter of the Year

PORT JEFFERSON, NY – On June 30, AHEPA District 6 Governor Dean Moskos and District 6 Treasurer Petros Ragoussis attended AHEPA Port Jefferson’s Chapter 319 business meeting to award them with the District Chapter of the Year award

Present to receive the award were the officers of the chapter, President Nicholas Calogredes, Vice President Haralabos (Bobby) Gemelas, Secretary George Kallas, and Treasurer Michael Kontonicolas as well eight other members with three more via video conference.

As he presented the award, newly elected District Governor Dean Moskos applauded Port Jefferson Chapter 319 for their efforts and accomplishments, especially during the COVID- 19 pandemic, most notably the Multi-Chapter Mass Initiation for 12 new members that the chapter hosted in June, their vigilance in holding monthly business meetings, the AHEPA scholarship they awarded to Stony Brook University’s Center for Hellenic Studies in June, the 3rd Annual Fishing Trip hosted in September, and their Feeding of the Poor with 50 meals delivered to the Pax Christi Homeless Shelter last New Year’s Eve.

Following the award presentation, the Chapter held its annual elections for officers, electing the following Brothers to their Executive Board: President Nicholas Calogredes, Vice President George Kallas, Secretary Alexi Poulianos, and Treasurer Michael Kontonicolas.

Port Jefferson Chapter 319 has done a great job recruiting new members into AHEPA this year, and will focus on raising funds for the rest of the year, so that they can better fulfill AHEPA’s mission.
