Dear Members and friends,
Kemps Creek Update – some of you will recall that Meteora became a unit holder along with other Australian Greek associations to purchase land out in the suburb of Austral in southwest Sydney. After many years of seeking greater access to information about the property and the running of the Hellenic Village (the trustee company), the time came for the board to change. Some of the new board including our own representatives, the new Hellenic Village President Mr George Mpliokas (Meteora) and Peter Siomos (Meteora) visited the site on the the 2nd of October 2019. The attached photos were taken to provide our members with some perspective as to what the property looks like and the development that is going on around it.
The new board continues to work through a number of issues including seeking greater input from the unit holders and importantly correcting some of the regulatory requirements that previous boards had for unknown reason overlooked.
The new Hellenic Village board has written to each of the individual unit holder’s boards requesting they go an consult with their members on a number of issues. The Hellenic Village board itself has advised that some matters it was hoping to deal with some urgency have been delayed due to the above regulatory requirements not being completed by previous boards. These must be done before the new board can proceed. Also, much has been said in the press about the Hellenic Village unit holders pledging money for the creation of a Cultural Center in Sydney. Unfortunately, this is either an erroneous statement made to the press or a pledge made without the knowledge or agreement of the member unit holders.
Meteora looks forward to the upcoming AGM to discuss various issues but more importantly, is looking forward to another event to enjoy the company of many of you.
on behalf of the
President John Dellas, Vice President George Mpliokas Secretary George Koungoulos, Treasurer Con Kaletsis.
Committee Phillip Siomos, Arthur Koungoulos, Vasili Koungoulos, Andonia Maropoulos, Loukas Koungoulos, Paul Houteas.
