Welcome to AHEPA District 9
AHEPA donated a statue of Harry Truman to Greece in honor of the Truman Doctrine which gave $2 billion in foreign aid to the Greek government to help fight off Communist guerrillas during the country’s civil war between 1946 and 1949. We are proud President Truman was a member of AHEPA.
Membership Spotlight on District 9 – Northern New England ! Supreme President George G. Horiates concluded a successful membership initiative based tour of District 9 – Northern New England.
The District 9 travels started in AHEPA Burlington, Vermont Chapter. This past Friday Burlington gave the Supreme President a tour of the local Ronald McDonald house. The chapter, as it has for one of its staple programs for many years, cooked dinner for the children in the house and their families. Ronald McDonald Houses are places children suffering from cancer and other illnesses stay with their families while undergoing treatment.
Chapter President and Chef Extraordinaire Greg Lambesis and the chapter members assist in preparing home cooked dinners for ailing children and their families.
Thereafter, a meeting was arranged with Hellenic and Cyprus Affairs Chair Zenon Chirstodoulou in Manchester, New Hampshire with US Senator Amy Klobuchar, a proponent of Hellenic and Cypriot causes.
The Manchester, New Hampshire Chapter hosted a breakfast for the Supreme President where they discussed current affairs from the most recent trip to Athens, the status of our projects including the Wildfires relief fund and of course, membership.
