Dear Mr. Kotrotsios and your family:
Please accept our warmest congratulations for the 29th Anniversary of Hellenic News in America.
For all these years you have been working promoting with HNA and Hermes Expo what is dear and meaningful to Greek American Community.
We are grateful to you Mr. Kotrotsios because always you are positive when you speak, when you write and encourage support for every worthy effort especially for the promotion of Hellenic Culture in America.
We are grateful to you and your family Mr. Kotrotsios for your generous monetary pledge to support the under construction Center for Hellenic Studies at University of Rhode Island. We are deeply grateful for a long list of services to Paideia programs at UConn, URI, in other Universities here and in Greece.
Mr. Kotrotsios at the time of need as newspaper publisher or as Greek American leader always you are in the front to take initiative without waiting to ask for help.
We remember you a few years ago as the president of Hellenic American National Council to call a special meeting for Paideia/URI Center raising $150,000.
Two months ago because of the threat for demolition of the under construction Paideia/ URI Center you presented the story in front page informing our community for the danger and encouraging all to complete a pledge form.
Thank you! Ευχαριστούμε πολύ!
Ilias Tomazos, Fotis Papadimitrakopoulos
