PORT JEFFERSON, NY – AHEPA Chapter 319 of Port Jefferson, on January 4, kicked off the New Year in 2023 with their first monthly business meeting of the year, which included the blessing and cutting of the Vasilopita. Spiros Mountzouros, one of the five new members initiated into the chapter in December, was the proud winner of the lucky coin. Good luck in 2023 Brother Spiro!

As part of the agenda for their first business meeting of the year, the chapter reviewed their goals and objectives planned for 2023, continuing AHEPA’s mission to promote the ancient Greek ideals of Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, and Family and Individual Excellence through community service and volunteerism.

The chapter officers were overjoyed to see the record-breaking attendance, which included all five of the new members that were recently initiated into the chapter in December of 2022- Pelops Damianos, Howard Frampton, Eleftherios (Apollon) Zoumpanidopoulos, Salvatore Del Gigante, and Spiros Mountzouros.
