As it has done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Brooklyn AHEPA Chapter 41 held its monthly meeting on November 4, 2020, virtually via Zoom. Among the various items on the agenda was a discussion of the recent Kimisis Theotokou annual Cigar Night which was held on October 23 in the parish’s outdoor property; a review of the AHEPA Charitable Foundation for the recent earthquake in Greece and fires in California and the chapters support of same, as well as the chapters observance of the one-year memorial service for our Brother and former Chapter President, John Samakovlis which will take place on a Sunday in mid-December at the Cathedral of Sts. Constantine and Helen, where the chapter is based and where John served on its Board of Trustees.

The chapter has used its virtual meetings since the very beginning of the New York quarantine to keep its members in touch and to share relevant information on all issues related to the pandemic. They also hosted expert guest speakers to address questions about economic, legal, local government, health, and safety issues. Regrettably, the chapter had to postpone its annual Golf Outing, who proceeds have gone to support Youth Programs in all the Brooklyn Parishes as well as its Spring Independence Party usually held on the Friday before the Greek Independence Day Parade.

Chapter 41 is the home chapter of Past District 6 Governor Peter Vasilakos. We were honored to have three District Officers in attendance at our most recent meeting! District 6 Governor Lou Katsos, as well as Lt. Governor Dean Moskos and Secretary Chris Pappis, joined in to express their support of the chapter and to advise of all the upcoming dynamic events planned in the district. The chapters 2020-2021 officers are President John Liodakis, Vice President Stavros (Steve) Doukas, Secretary Spyros Loukakos, and Treasurer Peter Kontopirakis.
