Port Jefferson AHEPA and Parish Council Honor Community Icon Peter Tsantes

PORT JEFFERSON, NY – After the Divine Liturgy at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption, Kimisis tis Theotokou, on March 7, Port Jefferson AHEPA Chapter 319, along with Fr. Louis Nicholas, presiding priest of the community, and Parish Council President George Kokolakis, honored a founding member of the community, Peter Tsantes.

Tsantes has been a very active and generous member of the Assumption Church in Port Jefferson for many decades as well as many other communities in Long Island. He has also been an active member of AHEPA for over 50 years. Several years ago, Tsantes and his family made a generous donation to Stony Brook University to create a center for Hellenic Studies.

Fr. Nicholas and Kokolakis presented a silver icon of the Panagia to Tsantes in recognition of his many years of dedicated service to the Greek Orthodox Church and AHEPA. In attendance were his daughter Sophia Brandon, son-in-law Michael Brandon, and granddaughter Petroula Brandon.

“The community of Assumption Church and AHEPA 319 are honored to have Mr. Tsantes as a member,” Chapter 319 said in a statement via email.
