Dear Sisters & Brothers,
I hope this message finds you and your family safe during these difficult times. The year 2020 has truly been an unusual and disruptive year for us all. While we would traditionally be preparing for our national convention this month, we are now forced to change our plans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Though disappointing, we will carry on as an organization and continue to set goals for the future. The following are some details that I wanted to share with you as we approach the end of our fiscal year.
Community Food Drive
Earlier this year, the Supreme Lodge and Foundation initiated a community food drive challenge, asking chapters to support their local food bank / food pantry by raising funds or collecting food donations. For chapters who raised $500 or more, the Foundation had pledged a $500 match!
Thank you to the chapters and individual members who have supported this worthy cause. If you intend to contribute or have not received notification that the donation match has been issued, please let the Supreme Lodge or Foundation know as soon as possible.
2020 Year End Meeting
The Supreme Lodge and Foundation will be hosting a joint year end meeting on September 12, 2020 at 1:00 pm eastern time, that will be broadcasted remotely for all members who are in good standing to attend. So please submit your membership dues as soon as possible.
This meeting is designed to be a year-end wrap up, focusing on the many accomplishments our organization has achieved throughout the year. A variety of topics of interest will be discussed, such as: scholarship grants, fundraising results, membership totals, future goals, and more.
Please Note, In an effort to ensure the meeting runs efficiently, we ask that all questions be submitted to the Supreme Lodge through chapter presidents by September 8th. The Supreme Lodge and Foundation will do our best to address as many topics and questions as possible during the meeting.
I’d like to remind everyone the importance of a strong membership base and ask that each of us take a few moments and submit memberships as soon as possible. As a reminder, you are now able to pay individual & group memberships in two ways:
- Electronically through our website: https://pan-icarian.com/membership/
- Mailing* checks to Supreme Treasurer Evangelos Fragos at the following address:
5312 Bellwood Court
Wilmington, NC, 28412
* Please note, that mailed checks should be written out to “Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America”
Thank you for your continued support
