The Hellenic - American Social Club
The Hellenic-American Club was incorporated in June of 1990 as a non-profit group serving all of Lee County, Florida, with the Hellenic logo of: Filia, Agapi, Syntrophi = Friendship, Love, Companionship. Its objectives are to practice fellowship and sociability among its members, and to hold meetings, social events, dinners, outings and other forms of recreation to promote the welfare of its members, morally and fraternally.
The Club holds meetings monthly, October through Mayeach year, and periodically features guest speakers at the meetings to inform the group on current topics of interest. In addition, planned events include bus day trips to: St. Petersburg Aquarium, travel to Tarpon Springs to celebrate the St. Michael Shrine, Oxi Day trip to Sarasota Selby Gardens, day boat excursion to Useppa Island & lunch, Key West Express boat trip, Panagiri Picnic, trip to Ringling Museum, and the Annual Christmas Dinner Party for members only, as well as various picnics and get-togethers which members may suggest during the year.
Most recently the club hosted a "Members Only" complimentary luncheon at the beautiful Lighthouse Restaurant. A great afternoon by all memberswho had not yet departed Florida for the summer hiatus.
Annual Dues in the amount of $20.00 per person are requested to defray the costs of meeting venue, speakers and refreshments at meetings, alng with subsidizing some of the event and travel costs for members, as well as contributions to charitable organizations and churches. Our meetings our held on the second Tuesday of each month (during season) at the Annunciation GOC of Fort Myers, and we invite all interested persons to join us at any of our meetings to discover the joy, fun and camaraderie with good friends.
