79 Years of Philanthropy in America & Greece
Dear Fellow Evrytanians,
Greetings from Greenville! As you all know from the raffle ticket mailing, this year’s national convention will be held in Greenville, South Carolina, June 9-11, 2023. We are excited to present to you an exciting weekend to see each other again and enjoy getting together with friends and family. Last year’s convention in Karpenisi, Greece, was an amazing success renewing our commitment to helping our members and patriotes in America and Greece. Let’s keep the momentum going!
This year’s convention will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in beautiful downtown Greenville, a fast-growing city with an award-winning city center. Rooms are $169.00 per night and must be reserved by May 26, 2023. This General Assembly meeting is very important this year. We will be holding national elections, so please do your best to attend.
We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for the Grand Banquet Saturday night will be Her Excellency Alexandra Papadopoulou, Ambassador of Greece to the United States. Please make every effort to attend so that we can welcome her and show her our Evrytanian hospitality! The Banquet will be taking place in the Hyatt Regency Ballroom, so please pre-register for the Grand Banquet, as well as the Friday night President’s Dinner for those wishing to attend, by May 30, 2023, to reserve your seat. NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. We thank you for your understanding.
For the young adults, there will be a bar crawl and Greek Night dance on Friday. Also, we will be hosting a basketball tournament on Saturday. For our younger members, we are making arrangements with an indoor themed putt-putt/family entertainment facility just a short walk down Main Street. For convention information, please call Jimmy Chulkas (864-346-4407), Roula Chulkas (864-437-6102), or Vasili Tsolias (864-982-3896). You may also visit our website: velouchi.org. As a side note, the Board has hired Ms. Sophia Demos Tsokanis as our new office manager for the national office in Charlotte. She will be able to assist with any questions you may have concerning the Evrytanian Association.
Thank you for your time. Greenville Chapter #9 “Kefalovriso” is excited to host the members of the Evrytanian Association for the 2023 National Velouchi Convention. Hope to see you in Greenville!
James N. Chulkas
2023 Velouchi Convention Chairman
