Our 45th Annual Athenian Night was a huge success thanks to event Co-Chairs: Joe Da Rosa, John Bantsolas, Bill Drewry and Peter Kalogerinis.  We received many compliments that this was one of the best events that we have had in years.  John, Tommy & Deno Frangakis and their team of Fayetteville’s finest chefs made certain that the menu was one to remember.  We are extremely thankful for all of our members that sold tickets, donated, served, volunteered and worked very hard to insure the event’s success.  District 3 Governor Bill Bond was on hand to make the District 3 Chapter of the Year Award presentation to all of the Brothers.

DOP Chapter Hestia 416


Our local chapter had a visit from our Grand Governor Stella Sirks from Orlando, Florida.  Sister Stella joined us for Athenian Night and was impressed by the event as well as our chapter. Sister Stella praised our hard work and charitable contributions. We enjoyed her visit and look forward to seeing her in the near future.

Thank you to all that came out the week prior to Athenian Night to help with set-up.  All the help was greatly appreciated and everyone’s hard work paid off.  The hall looked amazing and we received many compliments on the decorations and set-up.

A special thank you to Frances Skenteris and her classmates for reaching out to our chapter to present a session on dental hygiene. They shared a lot of great information. We wish them the best!

As we usher in the Lenten season in preparation for Orthodox Easter April 8th, the AHEPA and DOP will offer the Wednesday night Lenten meal March 7th after the Pre-sanctified Liturgy.

 If you are interested in learning more or joining our wonderful organization, please see a member or let Litsa in the church office know.   

Our next meeting is March 19, 2018

Love in Theta Pi,
