PRESIDENT'S NEW MESSAGE

My Dear Fellow Evrytanians,

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2022

I hope everyone had a joyous Christmas together with family and friends to celebrate our Lord‟s birth and to give thanks for the truly important things in our lives. This past year was challenging, but the development of vaccines and boosters to combat Covid gives us hope that medical research will soon bring an end to this pandemic. Let‟s pray that with God‟s help we reach this goal quickly.

 

As we approach spring, I would like to remind our college age students to seek out all resources for scholarships for the upcoming school year. Do not forget to apply for our Velouchi scholarships (application must be postmarked by May 2,2022), as well as scholarships sponsored by other Hellenic organizations in America. Our Youth Committee has compiled a list of websites that give financial assistance to students. Please take advantage of these opportunities!
