Canadian Prime Minister invites AHEPA Canadian President Nick Aroutzidis on Delegation to Greece. This marks the first time an AHEPA Canada President has been honored with such an invitation. See Globe and Mail article.
WASHINGTON - The Right Honorable Stephen Harper, prime minister of Canada, has invited AHEPA Canadian President Nick Aroutzidis to participate on his official delegation to the Hellenic Republic on May 28 and 29, 2011, announced Supreme President Nicholas A. Karacostas. Aroutzidis has accepted Prime Minister Harper's invitation.
"This is the first time an AHEPA Canadian President was asked to participate on such a delegation," Aroutzidis said. "It is a great honor for AHEPA Canada, and for me personally, to participate. The invitation is a testament to the myriad of contributions the AHEPA Family in Canada makes to our communities on a consistent basis."
EPA Canada was organized in 1928 with its first chapter chartered in Toronto. Among the many accomplishments of the AHEPA Family of Canada include the recent fulfillment of a $250,000 pledge to the Shriners Hospital for Children. In 2003, The Canada Post Corporation issued a commemorative postage stamp in honor of AHEPA's 75-year history in Canada.
"We are proud of the charitable and philanthropic work of the AHEPA Family of Canada," said Karacostas. "We congratulate them on this tremendous honor. We are confident Nick will be an outstanding representative of the Greek Canadian community, and he will be an asset to the delegation."__________________________________________________________________________________________
