Syracuse AHEPA Chapter 37 held their monthly meeting on October 17, 2020 virtually via GoToMeeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was a special meeting to celebrate OXI Day. Mike Labatos was the moderator and co-panelist with Dr. James Telonis. Fr. David Smith administered the opening and closing prayer. We were honored with the presence of our D6 Governor, Lou Katsos, who made a huge contribution to the discussion and what OXI Day means. We are thankful to Chris Pappis, D6 Secretary for being on the helm of video and audio.
