Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and had a chance to celebrate Paska with friends and family.
The Supreme Lodge met in Atlanta, GA in March. As part of our meeting, we toured the hotel where the 2024 convention will be held.
It was a wonderful time and I would like to thank Chapter Langada for their hospitality.
After various starts and stops and some difficulty we have finally resolved a host for the final meeting before the convention in Philadelphia.
Akron has agreed to host. The Brotherhood will have a meeting on June 10th in Akron, Ohio. All are welcomed to attend and we hope to see you there, if possible, especially since Chapter V.I. Chembithes will be hosting a lamb roast.
The Philadelphia Convention looks to be a great time as is always the case when Chapter Atheras hosts. Our friends and family from Philadelphia and Southern Jersey are planning a fun filled exciting convention for us.
The first mailing has gone out and the room block is open. Start booking your rooms at Sheraton.com via their website link at ikariaphilly.com to ensure your room at the Convention.
Also, you can still enter to win a chance of one of three convention packages by buying a convention raffle ticket. See details at ikariaphillly.com/raffle.
The Youth conference will be in Pittsburgh on Memorial Day weekend. The conference will be held in conjunction with Pittsburgh’s annual mini convention. As part of the fun, there is a golf outing and dance. All are welcomed for what is always a good time.
The scholarship application is live and available on line. The deadline is July 1. All eligible students are encouraged to apply.
Please inform the lodge of any upcoming events your chapter may be having. We want to support all our chapters.
And since one of these messages would not be complete without our regular reminder for everyone to pay their dues, we are doing so now. If you have not yet paid your dues, please do so. If you have already paid, we thank you for the support that helps keep the Brotherhood strong. Remember, your chapter can claim boasting rites as the winner of the greatest percentage increase in membership.
Supreme President of Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America
