The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA,) a leading membership-based association for the nation’s three million American citizens of Greek heritage and Philhellenes, has re-established its chapter in Anchorage, Alaska, Supreme with 17 new members on Aug. 20, President John Grossomanides said.
“We are excited to reactivate the Anchorage chapter,” Grossomanides said. “We have a dedicated group of Greek Americans there, and I am confident the Anchorage chapter will make immediate contributions to the community. I want to also thank the members of the Supreme Lodge who helped to reactive the chapter.”
Supreme Vice President Anthony Kouzounis, Supreme Treasurer Anthony Drakos, Supreme Governor Nick Kavadas, and AHEPANS Sammy Thomas and Ernest Pool accompanied Grossomanides on the visit to Anchorage, where he also noted the recent establishment of chapters in Honolulu, London; Istanbul, and Sofia, Bulgaria, as well as a chapter in Puerto Rico, and the formulation of an AHEPA District (comprised of at least three chapters) in Cyprus.
