PRESIDENT'S NEW MESSAGE
My Dear Fellow Evrytanians,
We have experienced a most difficult and unusual year. The coronavirus turned the entire world upside down and caused us to restructure our daily lives, making us feel emotions ranging from fear to anger to despair. No one knew in January, 2020, what to expect for the oncoming year. But now in January, 2021, with the distribution of the vaccine, we have reason to feel differently about this new year. Although we are not through with the pandemic yet, we have hope that we will soon be able to resume a normal life.
2020 presented many challenges for our Evrytanian Association. But through the capable efforts of the Executive Board, Board of Trustees, office staff and dedicated individuals who would not allow our Velouchi to falter, we were able to meet these challenges and overcome them. Although we could not meet in person, we were able to conduct business by meeting online through ZOOM.

Thank you for your past generous donations, we ask for your support to continue this outstanding program. We hope this year’s plea will...
