September's message

from our President

Kalimera kai Kalo Mina to all,

I hope you all had a wonderful summer full of family, friends and quiet moments in beautiful places.

In early August, I had the great privilege to be invited to attend the Lykaion Games in the ancient stadium of Ano Karyes in Arcadia. An event that takes place every four years and was the precursor to the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece. Dr. David Romano, Professor from the University of Arizona, is the leading archaeologist and has a long term vision of creating a cultural heritage park in this area which would include mountain paths connecting the various villages and the magnificent site of the Temple of Apollo Epicurius. The whole area is worthy of a visit.
