CELEBRATING GREEK INDEPENDENCE
Following the White House salute in honor of Greek Independence Day, the NHS hosted their second annual after-party reception for members, guests, and VIPs to honor Greece’s 186 years of freedom from the Ottoman Empire. Several Greek American organizations, Greek and Cypriot Embassy representatives, and politicians, as well as Greek artists Kalomoira, Thanos Petrelis, and Vassy, were in attendance. It was a night to remember. Ζήτω Ελλάδα – long live Greece!
