Greetings from the “Historic” Eastern Region of the Continental Societies, Incorporated. We are the “Historic East” home of 10 National Presidents and two (2) of the three (3) Founding Chapters (Philadelphia and Washington, DC). As the Continental Societies is entering its 62nd year of service, the East continues to be a beacon of excellence in serving children. Through our 13 Chapters spanning from New York to Washington, DC, including Bermuda, outstanding programs in the areas of Health, Education, Employment, Recreation and the Arts & Humanities (H.E.E.R. + Arts & Humanities) continue to be provided annually.
In 2017 Chapters in the Eastern Region garnered 8 out of 18 National Program Awards which included 1st place in the two out the five program H.E.E.R + Arts & Humanities Program areas. The 2nd place overall award was won by the Metropolitan Philadelphia Area Chapter whose student was also the recipient of the Organization’s awarded National Scholarship. We invite you to navigate to our program tab and to get an overview of some of the outstanding services provided by our Chapters.
