PRESIDENT'S NEW MESSAGE
My Dear Fellow Evrytanians,
Spring is here and the world renews itself. It has been one year since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. Let us hope the worst is behind us as we look forward to restoring a normalcy to our lives. Throughout the lockdowns and restrictions, the Velouchi has continued to perform its duties and responsibilities, has adapted new ways to hold meetings and conduct business, and continues to work with our representatives here and in Greece to help our fellow Evrytanians by providing academic, medical and charitable assistance wherever possible.
I would like to take this time to remind you of our Velouchi Scholarships. Please encourage all graduating high school seniors and college students to apply by the deadline of May 21, 2021. All applications must be completed and postmarked by this date to be considered. Please view the Velouchi website for more information or call the national office with any questions
