By nature, some people are born lucky so much so that, anything they touch turns to gold. Mr. Fred Appre (the first President& a founding father) is the King Midas of Kwahuman Association of New York”. With assistance from his dedicated followers, Mr. Appreh was able to turn sweat and sacrifices to wine and history respectively.
During his tenure of office, membership size was not as large as it is today; yet, a lot of achievements were accomplished. Trust and respect for one another was the cornerstone of the association.
Executives were handpicked for various positions and honesty was not taken for granted. Mr. Appreh and his crew members like Mr. KwabenaSarfo, Mr. Kofi Boamah, Lawyer Asiedu, Madam AdwoaAbankwah and Mr. Yaw Annor struggled to gain grounds and reputation for the Association. A legacy Kwahuman is enjoying today. Even though other Associations like Asanteman, Akan and Okuapeman were in their formative stages, Kwahuman gained so much respect for its exemplary performance in the Ghanaian community. It was under his administration that Okwahuhene gracefully attended our 3rd annual Easter dance.
