Port Jefferson AHEPA Chapter 319 Hosts Sold out 4th Annual Fall Fishing Trip

PORT JEFFERSON, NY – Port Jefferson AHEPA Chapter 319 hosted their 4th Annual Fall Fishing Trip on the Long Island Sound on September 25, providing bait, tackle, food, and refreshments for 75 guests, including fellow Ahepans, family, and friends.

Every year this event also brings together several AHEPA chapters, and this year was attended and supported by Brothers from Shrine Chapter 500 Greenlawn, Andreas T. Stamboulidis Parthenon Chapter 495 Whitestone, Constantine Cassis Chapter 170 Hempstead, Delphi Chapter 25 Manhattan, District 6 Treasurer Peter Ragoussis, and Past District Governors Demi Pamboukes and Michael Capous.

The brightest, most significant and satisfying by-product of this event is the enthusiastic and joyful participation of students from St. Basil Academy in Garrison, NY, thanks to the generous AHEPA sponsors, including Past District Governor Louis Katsos. Shrine Chapter 500 from Greenlawn took it a step further and provided all the students with a gift at the end of the trip as they disembarked from the boat.

Special thanks go to Brother Haralabos (Bobby) Gemelas, who was most instrumental in the success of the event, spear-heading the sales and production, Brother Alex Vogiatzis, for help preparing and serving the food, and Port Jefferson Chapter Treasurer, Brother Mike Kontonicolas, for the management and handling of all the ticket sales.

The Chapter said in a statement via email: “Our chapter is incredibly grateful to all those who supported this very successful, and now popular event, as it allows us to raise funds every year to help us to better carry out AHEPA’s mission of promoting the ancient Hellenic ideals of Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, Family and Individual Excellence through community service and volunteerism.”

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.
