GREENLAWN, NY – Over the last few years, AHEPA has spread its membership wings throughout New York, the Empire State, inspiring Hellenism and brotherhood. Shrine 500 was reactivated and became the latest chapter to join the Empire State Family. The reactivation occurred on September 27 at St. Paraskevi Church in Greenlawn.

The impressive ceremony is part of a district-wide blueprint to spread the AHEPA logo to every community throughout the state. The goals from the very beginning were ambitious, but the district leadership continues to achieve results. District leaders from nearby chapters gathered to support the reactivation.

2019 District 6 Fall Conference was a huge success. Brothers across the Empire gathered together to discuss Hellenism and the brotherhood. Here is a small video which captures some of the highlights. Click here for video.

I hope all is well. We are pleased to announce that the 2020 AHEPA Family Supreme Convention will be from July 19 to 26 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL. As of today, the hotel is 75% sold out and we are running out of rooms. Reservations should be made online ASAP at https://www.mydisneygroup.com/ahepa2020. If you are planning to attend please don’t wait. Just like the last convention we had in Orlando, in order to take advantage of this rate, you must be an active, dues paying member of AHEPA. If you are not, you will have to pay the non-AHEPA rate for the room, upwards of $400/night. Please let me know if you have any questions. 

Fraternally yours, 

Brother Chris Pappis
AHEPA District 6 Secretary
