AHEPA NSW to mark 90 years of service


AHEPA NSW will mark 90 years of service to Hellenism and to Australia since the founding meeting at the northern NSW town of Werris Creek.

The Australian Hellenic Educational Progressive Association – known by the acronym AHEPA – will honour its 90th anniversary with a series of events through to May 2025.

The official launch of the celebratory program will take place on Sunday 26 Μay 2024 with a luncheon at the Novotel Brighton Beach Sydney Hotel from 12:30pm.

The Objective of the Association is the national, social and commercial benefit of its members, the support of every national and philanthropic cause, as well as the protection which elevates the national name and national reputation of the Hellenes in Australia.

This is what the founders determined, during their first official meeting on Wednesday 15 Αugust 1934. Since then, the officers and members of AHEPA NSW have served this objective by diverse means across many fields. On national days, with awards and sponsorships, with book launches, with musical and theatrical evenings and much more.

Honouring 90 years of the Association, President Demetris Papanagiotou and the members invite community organisations to join them in marking this significant milestone in the history of Australian Hellenism. During the event on Sunday 26 May, AHEPA NSW Inc will be paying tribute to individuals and organisations with great contributions to AHEPA NSW Inc and to Australian Hellenism. Representatives of community organisations are invited to participate in paying tribute to these prominent persons.

The anniversary events commenced with the celebration of International Women’s Day on 17 March, followed by the celebration of Independence Day on 27 March. Both events were very successful, honouring the 90th birthday of AHEPA NSW Inc. The 90th anniversary events will continue on Monday 20 May with the launch of a new book in cooperation with the Kytherian Association and AHEPA Day on Sunday 26 May at the Novotel Brighton Beach Sydney Hotel from 12:30pm (tickets $120).
