“Freedom must be kept alive in our daily life. One cannot be free when one knows his family’s freedom is restricted,” said Captain Stelios Tatsis. The concepts of freedom were explained at the Chian Federation and Pan Chiaki Society “Korais” celebration of “Freedom 2009” commemorating the 97th anniversary of the liberation of Chios from Ottoman Turkish rule. The event took place on Sunday, November 22, at St. Markella Greek Orthodox Church in Wantagh. More than 350 attended. A luncheon was hosted in the church hall with a program that included poetry and dances. Rev. Fr. Sarantis P. Loulakis is presbyter. Georgios Lilikas is president of the Parish Council.
