One of the most impressive events was orgsanised for the anniversary of 1821 in Rockdale from AHEPA NSW. A big crowd of people, songs from the Greek rebellion, poems from poets and greetings from the Greek Australians politicians of NSW. In the event, the speech of the president of AHEPA, John Kallimanis, stood out by highlighting the determining role of the emigrant Hellenism not only during the Greek rebellion but also in the modern history of Greece. He also talked about the important role of the AHEPANS around the world with a special reference to AHEPA NSW. In end he gave a hopeful message that the next celebration will be even more impressive in the new AHEPA Hall. An 8 year old Greek Australian from Earlwood public school, Panayiotis Soilemezis, stole the show by reciting a poem in fluent Greek. The event ended with greetings from Sophie Cotsis, Steve Kamper and from the Consul-General in Sydney, Stavros Kyrimis. It was a nice celebration which was presented and coordinated from Panayiotis Diamantis and we must mention that the recital of the poems was from John Foskolos, Fanis Nikolareas and George Karis.
