01/13/10: Archon Leadership Tribute Dinner honors Archbishop Demetrios
His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios, Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, was honored by members of the Order of St. Andrew on January 13, 2010 at the Central Park Boathouse. A dinner was held in His Eminence's honor in tribute of his 10th anniversary of enthronement. The Archons made a special presentation of a hand-cross to His Eminence at the conclusion of the dinner, crafted by Pamela Kariotis, beloved niece of National Vice Commander Nicholas, and the late Anna K. Bouras, and granddaughter of Protopresbyter Nikitas Kesses of Blessed Memory, long time pastor of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Chicago. The cross is based on the cross presented to American Archons when they are invested into the Order of St. Andrew the Apostle.
