The annual event “Capitol Hill Day”, was hailed as a big success this past week in Washington DC, by the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association. Executive director Basil Mossaides of the AHEPA, addressed guests,  senators, congressmen and prominent Greek Americans about the day’s events at dinner that evening.  The dinner banquet was titled, “A Salute to Civic Responsibility”. That event honored U.S. Congressman John Sarbanes and Ed Royce and Community Leaders Panicos Papanicolaou and Nick Larigakis. Held for only the 6th time, AHEPA representatives from 18 states (a new  record for AHEPA), attended the event that kick started with a barbecue on the rooftop of AHEPA headquarters the evening before.
