Cherry Hill celebrates Greek Independence Day at Town Hall

Cherry Hill marked the annual celebration of Greek Independence Day with a special ceremony on the grounds of the Municipal Building on Thursday, March 19.

Council President David Fleisher and Council members Brian Bauerle and Carole Roskoph welcomed students, staff, clergy and the Parish Council of St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church to Town Hall late Thursday afternoon.

Following brief remarks by several people in attendance, the Council members presented Fr. Emmanuel Pratsinakis, the church's pastor, with a proclamation commemorating Greece's fight for independence from the Ottoman Empire and acknowledging the influence that Greek culture has had on our modern world. Then, students from the school helped to raise the blue-and-white Greek flag outside of the Municipal Building's Carman Tilelli Community Center.

Greeks around the world will official mark the 194th anniversary of Greek Independence Day on Wednesday, March 25. Thank you to the St. Thomas community for once again inviting us to take part in their special celebration.
