Happy Name Day to Eustathios, Stathis
|The aim of 'Ikaria - Past and Present' is to share with you the wonders of Ikaria - our beautifully green island in the North Aegean Sea. We will be presenting stories from the past and introducing you to the island, and its people, as it is today.|
|We have Three exciting events to bring to your notice:
Firstly, on the 5th June 2019 the Naeras Hybrid Pumped Storage Power Station went online. This uses wind power to raise water to a level where a hydroelectric plant can use it to generate electricity - when it is needed. It is expected to be able to provide almost 30% of Ikaria’s energy needs. Full details can be found here.
The second exciting event is that Topsy Douris and Irini Karimali, both very interested in family trees, are organizing an Ikarian Genealogy Convention on Ikaria in May of 2020. Preliminary discussions with other genealogists suggest that there are likely to be attendees from the USA. In view if the importance of this event, Ikaria Past and Present has set up a website dedicated to it: www.genealogy.ikaria-pnp.com, where full details will be posted as they as they are finalized.
Now we can announce that the Ikaria Webcam really is back in action! Link here or on the Hotlist. We have replaced the old webcam and the associated software and hope it will be reliable and (for us) stress free.
There is an organization Friends of Ikaria, composed of volunteers based in Brussels who have dedicated themselves to helping Ikaria in myriad ways. I have just posted up information about them on the PRESENT page.
