About Us

MISSION STATEMENT

To preserve and promote the Hellenic culture and heritage, and to support the Hellenic-American community through cultural programming, education and counseling, as well as supporting philanthropic activities throughout the Hellenic community.

CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

The F.H.A.S.N.E. is the proud coordinator of several Hellenic-American community celebrations including the annual Greek Independence Day Parade in Boston. This event attracts thousands of community members and brings together people from throughout New England.

Our annual Dinner Gala boasts over four hundred attendees, includes dignitaries and political leaders from both the New England area and Greece, and serves as a fundraiser for our events.

Guests and speakers at past events have included:
Metropolitan Methodios of Boston
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino
Governor Michael Dukakis
Governor Howard Dean
Prime Minister of Greece Constantinos Karamanlis
Tom Ellis, NECN
Maria Menounos, ET


Young members of our community have opportunities to explore their Hellenic heritage through traditional Hellenic dance performances, poetry recitals, and art competitions at various events throughout the year.

EDUCATIONAL EFFORTS

We strive to provide presentations that are of interest to our members and the New England community at large through lectures, multi-media presentations and discussion forums.

The F.H.A.S.N.E. heads the creation of the Hellenic Library for Children, a unique project to help children maintain and build the connection with the Greek language and traditions through the use of appropriate Greek books, videos, CD’s, DVD’s, games and puzzles.
