The club was the inspiration of late Archbishop Victor, who gave it its name, which means "the sun of benevolence." It was his desire that the group raise funds for the construction of an altar at the St. George Orthodox Church here, a dream that the club fulfilled in 1938, when the altar was formally dedicated. In the 40s, the club projects included the publishing of a monthly newspaper which was sent to service men and women during World War II and events called "Labor Day Affairs, "initiated in 1942 and including such events as a dance, memorial services, a luncheon and a continental revue. * * * . THE GROUP is particularly proud of the Syrian-Lebanese dinner which was held in 1967 as a benefit for the Charleston General-Marmet Rehabilitation Hospital. Proceeds from the dinner furnished a three bedroom suite. The club also has donated to relief and flood funds, eye clinics and mentally retarded clinics over the years. Funds from various projects furnished a room in the new wing of St. Francis Hospital, and a luncheon and style show in 1974 helped in the purchase of a dialysis machine at the Charleston Area Medical Center. A speghetti dinner was held to complete payment on the machine. In 1966, the club published its first "Syrian-Lebanese Cookbook," which is now in its third printing. The anniversary celebration will attract members-at-large from Canada, California, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, Arizona, Massachu- · setts, Ohio, New Jersey and others parts of West Virginia. To commemorate the event, a baptismal font has been dedicated in memory of the late Archbiship Victor at St. Andrew's Orthodox Church, Aitha II Fakar, Lebanon, the village of his birth.
