Mayor Alex Morse to Raise Flag for Greek Independence Day

On Friday April 7th at 3:00 pm, Mayor Alex Morse will host a flag raising ceremony outside of City Hall in honor of Greek Independence Day. This will serve as a commemoration of the difficult resistance led by Greek citizens against the Turkish government.

Father Tom Cokotis and members of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church have chosen this year, the year of their centennial anniversary, to begin the new tradition of raising the Greek flag. Father Tom will be speaking on the importance of celebrating Greek Independence Day and invites the community to join in the Greek dancing.

A small reception will be held in the Mayor’s Office afterwards with traditional Greek pastries.
