The idea of organising a society, came in May 1924, when a few Castellorizians met at a Greek Coffee Shop in Sydney and collected money to assist Castellorizians to bring their families, many of whom were stranded at Port Said Egypt awaiting for a ship bound for Australia. They decided to meet on 24 May 1924 at the office of Vasilis Photios to discuss the formation of the Castellorizian Brotherhood.
There were 17 Castellorizians at this meeting, which was chaired by Spiros Touloutsas and the minutes were taken by Vasilis Protomastorou. They appointed a Constitution Committee comprising of Anastasis Finikiotis, Agapitos Economou and Elias Leondis and they appointed an electoral Committee, comprising of Evangelos Stavrianos, Spiros Touloutsa and Vasilis Gemenis.
On the 15 June 1924 the inaugural annual general meeting of the Castellorizian Brotherhood “Megisti” was held at George’s Café in Pitt Street Sydney and was attended by over 35 Castellorizians.
The Constitution Committee reported that the Constitution was not ready to be endorsed and recommended that an interim Committee be elected and when the Constitution is completed to have an Extraordinary General Meeting, solely to endorse the Constitution. The meeting agreed with the recommendation and an election was held. The elected Committee was made up of the following:
- President: Anastasios Finikiotis
- Secretary: Elias Leondis
- Treasurer: George Gravas
- Committee: Agapitos Economou
In 1925 the newly elected Committee held its first fundraising function raising a clear profit of 80 pounds to aid the victims of the earthquake in Castellorizo
On the 7 July 1927 the Castellorizian Brotherhood “Megisti” held an Extraordinary General Meeting at the Café of Evangelos Stavrianos in Pitt Street and the Constitution, consisting of 35 Clauses was recommended by the revamped Constitution Committee made up of Anastasios Finikiotis, Spriros Touloutsa, Malaxos Malaxou, Elias Leondis and Evangelos Stavrianos. The constitution was considered and endorsed by the 62 members present.
