The always active American Philhellenes Society (here is a link to their website)  – thanks to the tireless efforts of Georgia and Peter Nikolopoulos – organizes two significant events in Chicago.  The first refers to International Philhellenism and the consul of Greece in Chicago Mr. Emmanuel Koubarakis as the keynote speaker (this Friday, April 29, 5.30 pm – see below). The second one will take place on Saturday, May 13, and will be referring to American Philhellenism with the director of Gennadius Library of Athens Mrs. Maria Georgopoulou as the main speaker (further details to be announced). Gennadius Library is part of the American Archaeological School of Athens, an institution of great tradition and distinction.

After the inauguration of their wonderful monument in Aurora, the American Philhellenes Society is planning to remain active in promoting all aspects of Philhellenism in an effort to showcase the numerous historical ties between America and Greece.

We are hoping that this time the Greek-American community in Chicago will put any differences they may have aside and they will come together attending these events – which are unifying by their nature!!

BELOW IS THE PROGRAM FOR THE APRIL 29 EVENT
