‘We are working towards becoming bigger and better’

Commenting on his election, GOCSA President, Bill Gonis, thanked the Community’s members for entrusting him with the future of the organisation.

“I am honoured to be writing this message as the newly elected President of the Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia and I couldn’t thank the Community’s members enough for entrusting me with the future of this 90-year-old organisation for the fourth term. 

“As the new year is well and truly in progress, we, as a vibrant Community, are already working towards achieving our goals and becoming bigger and better for our members and the broader community,” Mr Gonis tells The Greek Herald.

“This year is a special year for Hellenism as we celebrate the 200 years of Greece’s Independence from the Turkish occupation. The Greek Orthodox Community has scheduled a series of events to honour this significant milestone, joining the millions of fellow Hellenes in our homeland and around the world. 

“We will also celebrate this year another very important milestone, that of the 90 year-anniversary of our Community which was established in 1930. Since COVID wreaked havoc around the world in 2020, we were not given the opportunity to proceed and showcase any events or activities to honour our 90thAnniversary,” adds Mr Gonis.

“I would like to reassure our members and friends that the Greek Orthodox Community will continue to be a beacon of Hellenism for years to come as this is the heavy task we have been appointed to carry out since our humble establishment in 1930. This is our obligation; this is our promise to all South Australians,” he concludes.
