Dear Sisters and Brothers,

On behalf of the Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America “Icaros”, I would like to wish you and your family a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving.  

The holiday season is always a special time of year, as we reflect on our many blessings and surround ourselves with family and friends.  While this year’s celebrations are drastically different, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for us to stay cautious during these unprecedented times.  By being safe now, we will be able to celebrate together in the near future. 

Our busy holiday schedules often leave each day as a blur, and as such, we forget to embrace the true meaning of the holidays.  This year, I hope each of us take a moment to remember the many blessings we have in our lives.  I am personally thankful for our great organization, the strong history and culture that we all share, and your constant support and dedication to the Brotherhood.  These are all reasons why the Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America has not only remained active since its creation but thrived throughout the years.  We have experienced dark times before, and while we are all frustrated, our focus and perseverance will overcome anything presented before us.  

The season of giving is upon us, and I’d like to thank all of our members for the generous support that they’ve provided throughout the years.  Your contributions have provided the Brotherhood with the ability to successfully promote our strong Icarian heritage and assist in countless philanthropic endeavors both domestically and abroad.  The philanthropy of the Brotherhood has long been one of the elements that I am most proud of.  

As a reminder, you can donate to the Brotherhood in two ways, through our website (https://pan-icarian.comproduct/donate/) or by mailing a check to Supreme Treasurer Evangelos Fragos.  Please remember, in order for the received checks to be deposited, they must be written out exactly to: “Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America”.

I’d like to close by wishing you and your family a safe and healthy holiday season and thank you for your continued support and dedication to the Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America “Icaros”.  I’d also like to express my great gratitude and thanks to the members of the Supreme Lodge, Foundation, and Chapter officers who have worked tirelessly this year for the betterment of our organization.  Working together, we can take the Brotherhood to even greater heights.

Fraternally Yours,

Damianos T. Skaros
