Fiator of the Ewe Association, Clement Timpo @ 70-pictures

Oak Park Illinois,September 25 2016: One of the elders and respectable member of the Ghanaian community in Chicago, Mr. Clement Timpo, celebrated his 70th birthday with friends and family today, September 25 2016! The “picnic-birthday” celebrations was heavily supported by members of the Ewe Association, chiefs, elders in the Ghanaian community and friends of the Timpo family. Mr. Timpo was a former President of the Ghana National Council of Metropolitan Chicago  (GNC);  and left a long list of legacy for the Council and the community.

A few are:

  • He also secured the federal non-profit status, 501 (c) 3 and the Illinois Tax exempt for the Ghana National Council.
  • His amendments of the council’s constitution led to the current structure of the council.
  • His term in office saw the birth of the first website to propagate the image of the council.
  • He left about $20,000.00 in the coffers of the GNC . This was made up of $7,200.00 in a Ghana House account, an account dedicated as a seed money for a future community center for Ghanaians’ in Chicago; and $12,800 in the checking account..

Mr. Timpo was also a former President of the Ewe Association of Metropolitan Chicago and organized successful CEANA Conventions in Chicago.
