Summer Camp Scholarships
There are scholarship opportunities to assist our young Orthodox Christians to participate in the St. Demetrios Summer Camp as well as the St. Stephens Summer Camp in North Carolina.
The Philoptochos will sponsor 2 children at the St. Demetrios Summer Camp. Additionally, we are very pleased to announce that a scholarship fund from the Mary Kandaras estate has been established to fund 2 additional children at the St. Demetrios Summer Camp as well as one child at the St. Stephens camp in North Carolina.
Attendance at these camps is not only fun and educational but provides our young Orthodox Christians with an environment to develop their spiritual growth. Details regarding the criteria for the scholarships and applications are available on the St. Demetrios website or at the Church office.

Sunday School Reminder
Shoe Boxes of Hope is the Sunday School service project this year. This activity will benefit The Children’s Home Society, a local organization that provides temporary shelter for children and assists with foster arrangements and adoptions. We ask Sunday School students to collect school supplies and prepare in a decorated bag or box. We recommend they target school supplies appropriate for their own school grade. Please bring the supplies in before the last day of Sunday School, May 22.
Greek School Reminder
The Parents, Teachers and Adult students of the Greek School will meet on Monday, May 23rd at 5:00 PM to evaluate the school and chart its course for the coming academic year. The meeting will be in the community center and it is open to all the members of the St. Demetrios Community. An adult will supervise any children who cannot be left at home.
