Lou Katsos, President of AHEPA Delphi Chapter 25 in Manhattan, was honored to have been invted to address the AHEPA Hellas Midwinter Conference in Athens on February 9.
He gave an informative and moving presentation on the history of AHEPA, emphasizing its establishment in 1922 as a response to prejudice and even violence directed at Greek-American immigrants in the early 20th century, and to foster mutual support and promote education. Ahepa thus helped build a foundation for the Greek-American success story.
Katsos also told the story of the venerable Delphi Chapter which was resurrected through the efforts of Katsos and others led by past president Argyris Argitakos. From zero to now more than 271 members in four years, Delphi was recently acknowledged as the largest AHEPA chapter in the world.
