Trojan AHEPA Chapter 306 Gets Back to Work

TROY, NY – Trojan AHEPA Chapter 306 in Troy, NY on June 15 held its first in-person meeting since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Trojan Brothers met, while respecting all social distance guidelines, in the parking lot of St. Basil’s Church overlooking the Hudson River on a beautiful, late spring evening. After catching up with each other on their activities during the quarantine, the Brothers tackled a lengthy agenda.

Among the highlights of the meeting were the re-election of all the current officers to new terms and planning for the much-anticipated Souvlaki Fest. In addition, the Chapter made plans for another group volunteer event at the Regional Food Bank and its annual family baseball game outing. The next Chapter meeting will be in September.
