A Blessed Merry Christmas to you and your family
On behalf of the Empire State District 6 Lodge have a wonderful Happy, Healthy and Blessed Merry Christmas and may your wishes come true for you, your families and loved ones. Christmas is a special and magical time of the year filled with memories, promise, hope, giving and the commemoration of the birth of a special child who changed the world. It is a time for reflection on what is important in our lives and to give thanks for what we have and to be charitable to those less fortunate.
From all of us at AHEPA District 6 I would like to thank Lt. Gov. Brother Dean Moskos, who on behalf of the Lodge, headed the St. Basil Children’s Gifts Committee with the assistance of Brothers Gus Constantine and Anastasi Stampolis for assembling the gifts the children requested and delivering them to St. Basil Academy. As was mentioned at our all District Chapter Officers and Members Lodge meeting on December 10 anything your Chapters can do to support St. Basil Academy this holiday season would be appreciated. Their address is Saint Basil Academy, Attn: Fr. Costa Sitaras, 79 Saint Basil Rd., Garrison, NY 10524.
Christmas is a time also to remember those loved ones who shared those joys and memories with us over the years and who are always spiritually with us, and this year we have lost many more. May their memories be eternal. Stay safe and thank you for all that you do throughout the year promoting Hellenism, philanthropy and education. God Bless you all.
Brother Lou Katsos
AHEPA District 6 Governor
**Note on Dues and the Per Capita:
As we approach the end of 2020, we seriously encourage all Brothers if you haven’t to send in their annual membership dues to your Chapters, and Chapters Officers accordingly to help in that process. Brother Chris Pappis aka “The Secret Weapon” will continue to work with you to expedite/facilitate the very important dues process. Please keep in mind that our wonderful organization cannot survive with your support. Your membership dues help keep us and you strong and allow us to do all the great things that we all are passionate about. At this critical time, where we need to “Defend Hellenism”, support Education and Philanthropy, support our communities and churches, and to keep doing good things, your support is critical. Call delinquent members who can be reinstated. BROTHERS, IF YOU HAVEN’T, PLEASE SEND YOUR DUES IN TODAY, AND THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
