Parea Party, Ancient World Amazons

Dear Readers:

Greek events are always anchored by great parea but the United Greek Americans (UGA) have taken parea to a new level. Twice a year, UGA attracts young Greek Americans from throughout the country at its organized weekends orchestrated to meet new people and have a great time doing so. Complete with the crowning of a Miss UGA and a Mr. UGA, the HJ’s Giuliana Harris reached out to UGA founder Deano Kastis for the scoop. In a few short years, UGA weekends have grown to 1,000 attendees. The next reunion is slated for Labor Day weekend. See page 4 for the details.

Author Adrienne Mayor offered a lecture recently at the beautiful Getty Villa in Malibu, CA on the subject of her book The Amazons: Lives and Legends of Warrior Women across the Ancient World. “In her lecture, the author pointed out the archaeological evidence via modern bone DNA testing that shows that the Amazons were not just figments of the Greek imagination but real women,” writes correspondent Vasilis Papoutsis.  See page 6 for the rest of the story.

Finally, please join our 2015-16 family of supporters on the September cover. To join our HJ family, please see the adjacent page with all of the information. Efharisto!

THIS MONTH’S FEATURE STORY

UGA in the USA: The Ultimate Parea Party

By Giuliana Harris

Imagine a weekend dedicated to celebrating Hellenism with friends from all over the U.S., where your only responsibility is to book a room, schedule transportation, and simply show up to have fun. There you have the UGA Memorial Day Weekend in Clearwater, FL and Labor Day Weekend Chicago, IL events. UGA, which is short for United Greek Americans, was founded by Deano Kastis (Florida) in 2010. Deano spent years in the nightlife industry hosting events, thus leading to the idea of creating UGA.
