Moderators' Note: On the eve of the survey deadline, and in anticipation of next week's General Assembly, we would like to remind our readers of the proper and ONLY acceptable method for dividing our community.
This comes from a General Assembly motion passed in 1968, an image of which we posted in May of this year (view here). As always we've kept the exact text, including typos and line breaks, and tried to stay as true to original formatting as html allows.
We would also remind our readers that both Mr. Vidalakis and Mr. Skedros are, thankfully, still with us, and can verify the thoughts and wishes for this community's unity that were expressed unanimously by our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. We would all do well to consider their efforts and their sacrifices when we attend next Sunday.
