Dear Fellow Chians and Friends,
It gives us great pleasure to invite you to join us for the Chios Societies of the
Americas and Canada 60th Convention organized by the Chian Federation and the
Panchiaki “Korais” Society, in New York. The Convention will begin on Thursday,
July 3, and will conclude on Sunday, July 6, 2014.
As the included schedule indicates, the organizing committee has planned activities
that will allow us to spend time with old friends, and make new ones; experience
some of the best New York City has to offer, including a guided tour of the Ground
Zero Memorial, a Mets baseball game in Citi Field, with fireworks celebrating the
4th of July Independence Day. Working directly with the Chios business community
and local government, the committee is also organizing a Chian Products and
Tourism Expo, an Expo that will allow us to promote Chian products and Chios to
the US market. This Expo will be held at the Hellenic American Cultural Center of
the Chian Federation (44-01 Broadway, Astoria). We will also enjoy video and
photo exhibits, a panel discussion where we will present our heritage and our future
as Chian-Americans; as well as a Saturday Gala at Terrace on the Park, overlooking
the Manhattan skyline. To allow Chians from around the globe to share their
favorite memories of time spent in our beloved Chios, we are launching the
Memories of Chios Photo Contest.
Our “Neolaia”, the young adults group of the Chian Federation, are participating on
the planning committee to ensure there are activities that are of interest to young
adults. They are also organizing a young adult Greek night at a local establishment
for Friday night. Check out their Facebook page and look for details on this event
(https://www.facebook.com/#!/nyacf).
Included in this package, you will find details for all events taking place during the
60th Convention of the Chios Societies of the Americas & Canada. We encourage
you to book early as ticketed events have limited availability.

τοπική αυτοδιοίκηση, για τη διοργάνωση έκθεσης Χιακών προϊόντων και Τουρισμού. Η
έκθεση θα μας επιτρέψει να προωθήσουμε τα προϊόντα και το αγαπημένο μας νησί, τη Χίο,
στην αγορά των ΗΠΑ. Η έκθεση θα πραγματοποιηθεί στο Ελληνοαμερικανικό Πολιτιστικό
Κέντρο της Χιακής Ομοσπονδίας, στην καρδιά της Ελληνικής Αστόριας. Επίσης,
διοργανώνουμε εκθέσεις με βίντεο και φωτογραφίες, συζήτηση στρογγυλής τραπέζης
σχετικά με την κληρονομιά μας ως μετανάστες και το μέλλον μας ως Χιωτοαμερικάνοι
καθώς και την καθιερωμένη μεγάλη χοροεσπερίδα στο Terrace on the Park, με θέα το
μαγευτικό Μανχάταν. Για να καταστεί δυνατή και η νοερή συμμετοχή Χιωτών από όλο τον
κόσμο στο Συνέδριο και να μοιραστούν αγαπημένες τους αναμνήσεις από διακοπές στην
αγαπημένη μας Χίο, διοργανώνουμε φωτογραφικό διαγωνισμό με θέμα, τη Χίο.
Η «Νεολαία», η ομάδα των νεαρών ενηλίκων της Χιακής Ομοσπονδίας , συμμετέχουν
ενεργά στη διοργάνωση προγραμματίζοντας δραστηριότητες ειδικά για τους νέους ενήλικες.
