We thank Dr. Mary Lekas who pledged $250,000 to the Family Center in honor of her mother Mrs. Merciny Lekas of blessed memory. Mrs. Lekas was a devout steward who served as Philoptochos president as well as Greek School teacher for over 25 years in our community.
A heartfelt thank you also to Mrs. Irene Nickolson for her generous pledge of $50,000, which makes her total pledge to the Family Center of $100,000. The pledge is in honor of her late husband Mr. Nickolas Nickolson and will go towards the building of a new classroom. Thank you to all those who support the Family Center and have pledged to date to help realize our 50-year dream.
