Supreme President Announces Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient
Dear Brothers, Sisters, and friends of the AHEPA Family:

Life Member Alec Gulas, father of Supreme President Ike Gulas received one of two AHEPA Lifetime Achievement Awards. The award to Gulas was to be presented at the 87th Grand Banquet held July 3, 2009 at the annual AHEPA Supreme Convention in San Francisco. Alec, a lifelong member of Chapter No. 3, Birmingham, Ala., will not be attending the Supreme Convention, so the award was conveyed to him at the District #1 District Convention on June 6, 2009.

Supreme President Gulas stated, " ... members like my father preserved AHEPA for my generation to and that of my son." The supreme president made the announcement at a banquet where Alec was present and visibly touched as the crowd honored him with a standing ovation.

The AHEPA Lifetime Achievement Award was created to honor a special brother, who the supreme president believes embodies a lifetime of service to AHEPA. Alec is the 11th individual to ever receive the honor.

"Many members work all their lives for AHEPA, and often are never recognized for their sacrifices and commitments," said Gulas. "My father is one of those members who for years would close his eating establishment to host the chapter meeting. AHEPA has thousands of unsung heroes like my dad."

The second of the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award recipients will be announced and awarded at the 87th Grand Banquet.
