GREENLAWN, NY – Shrine AHEPA Chapter 500 wishes to extend a warm holiday cheer to all members of AHEPA. Chapter President Edwin Rivera and his AHEPA brothers closed out the year by hosting a Toys for Tots fundraiser. The event took place on December 8, at Bowlero, located in Melville, NY.

There were over 20 participants enjoying the festivities. There was plenty of finger foods and drinks to keep the bowlers energized for their next game. In the spirit of giving, the chapter asked all participants to donate one unwrapped gift. The gifts will be taken to Saint Paraskevi Greek Orthodox Shrine Church in Greenlawn, NY and will be distributed to families who are struggling economically this holiday season.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
