          Mr. Kostas Sevastos, reports on the history of the Hospital in Chios to the members in New Orleans and discloses that over $800,000 has been spent since 1993 to create an eye clinic, purchase catscan and dialysis equipment, and update the facilities.  Mr. Michael Christakis gives a testimonial describing how well he was treated for his back injury when he was admitted to the hospital.  Mr. Antonis Bouboulis discloses that the hospital has a new administrator, who has been doing a good job, and that the hospital is regarded as the best place for all people of the Aegean region to receive treatment.  Mr. Sevastos encourages the members to continue fundraising for the hospital.  Supreme President, Mr. Kontolios reports that donations are tax-exempt with the assistance of the Chian Federation.

 

          Supreme President, Mr. John Kontolios reports that the 50th National Chian Convention will take place in Atlantic City, NJ on Memorial Day Weekend.  The Delegate Meetings and Grand Banquet will take place on Sat. May 29, 2004.  Mr. Kontolios reports that the sponsoring society will be organizing the itinerary for the convention.  The next Supreme Lodge will also be elected during the Delegate Meeting.  

 

          Supreme President, Mr. John Kontolios also reports that the Korais Society of NY has decided to renew its membership to the CSA&C.  They report that they have trademarked the “Miss Chios” name and that they only have the rights to award the title.  Mr. Stan Salagaras, through a letter to the CSA&C, wants to introduce himself as the President of the Chian Federation of Australia.  He would like to start a dialogue with the CSA&C and his e-mail address is stansal@ozemail.com.au.  The Korais Society of Philadelphia has announced that they are active again after some years of being dormant from lack of interest.  Mr. Kontolios acknowledges their re-establishment and vows the support of the CSA&C to other societies that wish to do the same.

   

          Mr. Sevastos and Mr. Christakis encourage the CSA&C to find a better way to promote and communicate fundraisers for various medical hardships that may occur.  Mr. Bouboulis suggests that the winter quarterly meeting not be held in December, anymore.  Mr. Kontolios responds that the Supreme Lodge will take those matters under advisement. 

 

         Mr. Sevastos moved to adjourn the meeting, at 8:00 PM, and Capt. Michael Psarelis seconded the motion, which was carried.
