“Typical” young people have a social life with their peers. What most don’t realize is that this community doesn’t have as many opportunities to get invited or to be included in social gatherings and events. It was great to see this young community have a fun and carefree experience at this dance social. The chapter shared a special thanks to the following Chapter brothers, President Edwin Rivera for hosting the event, John Mandalios as DJ, Vice President Nick Monogioudis for generously donating the drinks, Isaac Rivera and Nick Moutselos for their support. Finally, the chapter thanked Silvio Capoccia from Babylon Chapter 416 for his cash donation.
