Maids of Athena came from far and wide to participate in the 87th Annual AHEPA Supreme Convention in beautiful San Francisco, California from June 29th to July 5th 2009. Events were as follows:
The Maids had an incredibly successful and fruitful general session on Wednesday, and broke to speak on the Daughters of Penelope Convention Floor. Legislation was passed that will allow active Chapters to hold up to three of their four non-ritualistic meetings electronically (via conference call, chatroom, etc.) and to allow Chapters to send more delegates to National Convention. There were thirty-two Maids of Athena Delegates and Alternates that participated in the National Convention this year, which is a record number for the past five years. Congratulations to all the Sisters in attendance for making an amazing impression on the rest of the AHEPA Family!
On Friday Afternoon, the Maids of Athena Co-Hosted the Sons and Maids Celebrate the Youth Awards Brunch. We were fortunate to receive a visit from His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, and His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco.
Award recipients for the 2008-2009 year are as follows:
In addition, the Maids of Athena were the recipients of a $10,000 Grant from the AHEPA National Housing Corporation.
National Scholarships were also awarded at our Awards Brunch. Congratulations to the winners!
The Sons and Maids cohosted a comedy hour, featuring Greek Canadian comic Angelo Tsarouchas, on Saturday Afternoon. A great time was had by all, and the Sons and Maids were honored to have had the opportunity to play host to such an accomplished comedian. Following the performance, Angelo met the Maids of Athena present, and was kind enough to take a picture with them as well.
Angelo also helped us out by drawing the first winner for our raffle! The Maids of Athena, along with the Sons of Pericles, held a raffle throughout the year to raise money for our joint National project, the AHEPA Cooley's Anemia Foundation.
Congratulations to all our winners!
