  • [01] Greek expatriates computer equipment to Laconia high schools

    The Pan-Macedonian Association of Ontario Inc. has donated 31 PCs, printers and UPS units to three schools in Laconia prefecture of southern Greece.

    The computers have already been installed at the high schools of Areopolis, Krokei and Skala.

    In 2007, the expatriate organisation raised 37,500 dollars for the victims of wildfires that ravaged parts of the Peloponnese.
