AHEPA Shrine 500 Moves Forward in Long Island

NEW YORK – Shrine AHEPA Chapter 500 held a monthly meeting on August 12 virtually via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On the agenda was an update for the recent food drive along with a discussion about membership.

In addition, they are planning several upcoming events including an Octoberfest membership dinner drive, Christmas toy collection, and a golf outing in January.

Among those in attendance was District 6 Secretary Chris Pappis. The current officers are President Edwin Rivera, Vice President Nick Monogioudis, Secretary Dennis Lichas, and Treasurer Steve Ramerini. 

AHEPA’s mission is to promote the ancient Hellenic ideals of education, philanthropy, civic responsibility, family and individual excellence through community service and volunteerism.

Founded in 1922 in Atlanta, Georgia, on the principles that undergirded its fight for civil rights and against discrimination, bigotry, and hatred felt at the hands of the Ku Klux Klan, AHEPA is the largest and oldest grassroots association of American citizens of Greek heritage and Philhellenes with more than 400 chapters across the United States, Canada, and Europe.
