16 new members to be initiated into chapter

Our next AHEPA business meeting is scheduled for this Sunday, March 18, starting promptly at 7:00 p.m. In anticipation of a large turnout for our meeting, the meeting will be held in the Kraras Social Hall.

As a result of our Membership Roundup dinner at the Hitching Post Restaurant, I am delighted to report that we plan to approve and initiate a total of 16 new member in our local Chapter this Sunday!

Since this is a special affair involving a formal and ritualistic initiation, I am asking all members to dress appropriately for the evening. Immediately following our business meeting, we will have fellowship including food and your favorite beverage.

Gentlemen, let’s have a nice turnout of our members as we welcome our member prospects into our Chapter of the Order of AHEPA!!!
