Congress Salutes Greek Independence Day
Yesterday, March 21, the American Hellenic Institute hosted an exceptional tribute to the 191st celebration of Greece's independence. The event was coordinated in cooperation with Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), both co-chairs of the Congressional Hellenic Caucus. The event was held in the impressive Congressional Meeting Room South, and many distinguished guests were invited.
Greek Independence Day is traditionally celebrated on March 25, and many festivities, parades, and ceremonies are taking place throughout the D.C. area in celebration!
