Local Greek members are asked to wear their Greek lapel pins February 21st
Greenville, SC- The National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC) of Greater Greenville is again promoting Greek Awareness in Upstate Greenville with its annual “A Day of Fellowship” on February 21, 2010.
The Council is asking Greek members to wear their Greek fraternity Lapel pins to their local Church services on Sunday, February 21, and make an announcement in the services about the Council and nine local chapters which make up in the Council in the Greenville Area. Brochures about the Council and sample Church announcement are available to members to use on that day on the new Council website, (www.upstatescpan.org).
This continues a change from previous fellowships where the council membership selected a church and requested all Greek membership to attend that service. The council is now asking Local Greek members to attend services in their own church communities. “Many people don’t know much about NPHC organizations and what we bring to their community.” said Council President Mack Lockhart, “We want to recognize the Greek members in their Church where there are performing services every day.”
The Day will close with the fellowship at Sam's Restaurant of 610 N Wood Dr., Fountain Inn, SC 29644 (864-862-6869) after services starting 1:30 PM. There Greeks and their families from all local Chapters can fellowship with each other over Sunday Brunch.
The National Pan Hellenic Council (www.nphc.org) is a national organization made up of the nine predominately African-American Greek organizations for College men and women. The NPHC of Greater Greenville (www.upstatescpan.org) is made up of nine local chapters of those nine organizations which include the following active members: Gamma Gamma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.; Eta Tau Omega and Pi Zeta Omega Chapters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.; the Greenville Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.; Mu Pi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.; Alpha Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.; Eta Sigma Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., and Nu Delta Zeta and Epsilon Iota Delta Zeta Chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
