A Warm Welcome from the Arcadians’ Chapter of San Francisco!
The Arcadians of San Francisco Chapter #35 is founded 90 years ago, member of the Pan Arcadian Federation of America
which is a nationwide non-profit fraternal Greek-American organization
whose members descend from the region of Arcadia in the Peloponnese, southern Greece.
It is dedicated to the promotion of the ideals of Hellenism and the principles of Democracy,
the preservation of the Greek language and cultural heritage, as well as the Greek Orthodox Church
and the support of Arcadian and Arcadian-American philanthropic, cultural and educational institutions.
In 1931, the Pan Arcadian Federation of America was formed in New York
by 12 visionary Arcadians with the goal of consolidating the various Arcadian village clubs that existed across the United States.
