"This hard-working couple have energized the Elpis Society and helped make a decade-long dream a reality."

Panos and Merope Pitsas
St. George, Keene NH

When Elpis Society membership was dwindling, Merope (Popey) Pitsas volunteered to serve as President; today the organization is thriving. Her husband, meanwhile, has served with distinction as President of the Parish Council. Together, Popey and Panos devoted years to the construction of a new community center. In November 2000 the decades-old dream was realized.  With its Greek columns and soft blue hues, Hellenic Hall is a source of pride to its parishioners.
