May 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters, 

I hope you and your families are doing well. 

Chapter Nisos Ikaria is working hard on the convention.  Rooms are going fast so book your room before they are sold out. Also, try and support them by placing an ad in the commemorative album. You can pay for the ad on line.  Any one with questions may reach out to the chapter. 

The Lodge is planning our last in person meeting before the convention. We are going to Virginia Beach the weekend of June 11th to meet with the Eirini Chapter. The Foundation will also be having their meeting that day.  Everyone in the area is encouraged and welcomed to attend.  Please reach out to the chapter or lodge with any questions. 

The Youth Leadership Conference was held in Chicago the weekend of May 20th.  It was a great success with 32 delegates from all over the country.  They also did a service project of packing hygiene bags for Chicago Covenant House after the meeting. Yianni Frangos, Youth Governor is to be commended for a great job. 

We have a Culture and Arts program for anyone that is interested. This includes fine arts, performing arts, written work, photography, etc.  Any questions, please reach out to Hrisoula Mavrophilipos, District 1 Governor. 

The scholarship applications are now open and available on line. This includes both graduate and undergraduate. The deadline to apply is July 1, 2022. Any questions please reach out to Alexandra Katsas, Scholarship chairman at [email protected]

We also want to remind everyone to pay their dues. During these difficult times it is more important than ever to support your local chapter.  

I would like to remind all the chapters to please submit your chapter’s per capita to Steve Stratakos, Supreme Treasurer.  I would like to also thank those chapters who have already submitted your per capita. Your assistance is greatly appreciated and doing so in a timely manner ensures your chapter has its delegates at the convention.

Sincerely yours,
Cathy Pandeladis
Supreme President of Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America
