Greetings to all Chiotes from the officers: We are hoping that each of you will have a wonderful 2006. The year of 2005 was a wonderful year for
our Chios Society. This newsletter will
review the accomplishments of 2005. Also, we will announce some pending events
coming up for the year 2006. In addition, it is membership dues
time. We will need you to pay your 2006
dues. If there are any past years’ in
arrears, we would like those sent in also.
Agia Markella Icon
This year we were able to acquire a beautiful icon of Agia Markella
from the Chios Society in Canton, Ohio.
It is a rather large icon. She
has found a home at Sts. Constantine and Helen Cathedral in Mayfield Heights,
Ohio. We are thankful to Rev. Fr.
Stephen Callos and the Parish Council for giving her a home. We are hoping that sometime this year, our
society will be hosting a brunch or a luncheon in Agia Markella’s honor.
Mr. Bert and Dr. Marjorie Moyer were the 2005 Honorees. We were so happy to honor such deserving
people. We wish them continued
successes. Panta Axoi-Ke Se

The band-Stigma-was great. The
plans for his year’s event are in the making.
Our first Christmas Party took place in early December 2005 at Sts.
Constantine & Helen Cathedral.
Santa Claus took time out of his busy schedule and came to visit us with
gifts for everyone. The children were
just enthralled by the whole event. The
adults got to visit with Santa and relive their childhood. 2006’s Christmas Party plans are taking
form. Do not miss it this year.
In the year of 2005, we donated to IOCC, Beth Pappas Cardiac Program in
Boston, Massachusetts, the Greek Independence Day Parade, the Hospital in
Chios, and other organizations.
Beginning with this year, we have already donated to the same charities,
helped a family in Vrondados, Chios, Greece and to the Metropolis of Pittsburgh’s
Daffodil Luncheon where part of the proceeds will be going to Cleveland Metro
Hospital’s Pediatric Burn Unit.
We would be amiss if we did not again thank Dean G. and Kathy Crimples
for their generous donation to our chapter for the last two years. Panda Axoi!
