ALMA participates in 2014 NYC Greek Independence Day Parade.

Despite cold and inclement weather conditions, over two dozen ALMA Bank employees proudly marched in the 2014 Greek Independence Day parade on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan on Sunday, March 30, 2014.

The annual event is a steadfast tradition, and represents the largest gathering of Greek-Americans outside Greece itself, and celebrates orthodoxy, Hellenism and freedom.

March 25th marks the official revolution celebration by the Greek state, dating back to the Greek War of Independence fought by Greek revolutionaries between 1821–1832 against the Ottoman Empire, with assistance from Russia, the UK, and France.

ALMA Bank proudly acknowledges its roots and actively supports the NYC area Greek community, to help preserve Greek heritage now and for the future of Hellenism for generations to come.
