Dear friends and members of the Federation,

On behalf of the Federation and myself, I would like to thank each and every one of you for participating in this year’s parade and showing our Hellenic pride. It took a lot of effort to put together this Parade, and I hope that we will all keep some nice memories.

The beautiful weather was an important ally but what made the day so special was the Presidential Guard of Greece (Evzones) and of course ALL OF YOU. As a first time chairman, I can only imagine what the future will hold for us all as we continue to grow our societies and our Greek community. We must always strive to keep our heritage alive and strong.

If you have any comments/suggestions to make or you think you can help in improving our Greek Independence Day Parade, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any other officer of the Federation.

In conclusion, I want to wish everyone a great Holy Week, Kali Anastasi and blessed Easter and I hope we can continue to grow a friendship in the community.

Zito i Ellas and God bless America!

George Maniatis
Vice President and Chairman of Parade
