The City of Boston commemorated AHEPA’s centennial anniversary

Boston, MA – AHEPA Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas and Board of Trustees Member Alex Geourntas, who serves as Boston’s City Clerk, accepted on Oct. 4 a proclamation celebrating AHEPA’s 100 years of service issued by Mayor of Boston, Michelle Wu, and presented by James Colimon who serves as the city’s Manager of International Partnerships.

The Ahepans also received a resolution presented by Boston City Council President Ed Flynn. 

“We sincerely thank Mayor Wu, Council President Flynn, city government officials, and especially Brother Geourntas, for recognizing AHEPA’s centennial anniversary and community service and for organizing the special presentations”, Supreme President Kokotas said.

The resolution applauds AHEPA’s mission, and commends the many charitable contributions of its members to communities in the United States and around the world, recognizing also the significant contributions of citizens of Hellenic heritage to the United States and the City of Boston.
