Brotherhood of Karitsa: General Members' Meeting 2014

The biennial general meeting of members of the Brotherhood of Karitsa, based in South Australia, was held on Sunday 12 October at the Goodwood Community Centre in Adelaide.

The agenda of the meeting included reports from the president Michael Malavazos, the treasurer Con Katsambis, as well as electoral and auditing committee member Dimitri Katsambis.

The president provided an overview of the activities of the Brotherhood in the last two years, citing in particular the very successful summer picnics and the midyear celebrations of "Agianniou". Michael also made special mention of the promotion of our village and its history on the internet through Karitsiotika Nea, edited by Dimitri Katsambis, Family Trees of Southern Parnon, coordinated by Stelios Hagias, and Facebook overseen by Katina Rozaklis.

The Brotherhood is very supportive of all these initiatives and decided to also sponsor DNA testing to be arranged by Stelios Hagias in order to trace the genealogy of individuals through time. Initially the following five members will be tested: Nikos Antoniou (son of Ioannis), aged 95, Diamantis Malavazos (son of Michail), aged 90, Nikos Katsambis, son of Konstatntinos), aged 78 , Dimitris Katsambis (son of Evangelos), aged 62, and Kostas Malavazos (son of Stylianos), aged 60. A sixth member Diamantis Hagias (son of Stylianos), aged 89, has already been tested.

In the elections phase of the meeting the following were nominated and agreed to serve on the executive committee for the next two years:

  • Katerina Richards (daughter of Argyris Antoniou)
  • Con Katsambis (son of Nikolaos)

The following were nominated and agreed to serve on the auditing and electoral committee:

  • George Rozaklis (son of Dimitrios)

In a closing statement, retiring executive committee member John Antoniou said it was a pleasure to have served on the committee since the inception of the Brotherhood in 1986. He is particularly pleased to see so many younger faces on the committee and wishes them every success. What is important he said is for all to respect the ideas and views of others even when they differ from ours. That way everyone feels included and part of the extended village family.
