BROOKLYN, NY – A wonderful ‘Meet and Greet’ Founder’s Day celebration to welcome the Daughters of Penelope (DOP) delegation of Grand President Georgette Boulegeris, Grand Treasurer Antoinette Marousis-Zachariades, and District 6 New York State Governor Lainie Damaskos-Christou was hosted on October 30 by DOP Demetra Chapter 33 at Three Hierarchs Greek Orthodox Church in Brooklyn, NY.
Chapter President Efthymia Galiatsatos and her sisters organized yet another fabulous feast including all the traditional Greek pastries, the ‘glendi’ and an abundant auction to entertain all who attended.
Among the honored guests present were also AHEPA Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas, District 6 Governor Dean Moskos, and Maids of Athena Grand Vice President Rigo Nasopoulos.
The many DOP Sisters in attendance with their AHEPA family members proudly honored the accomplishments and vision of their founder Alexandra Apostolides, who in 1929 put forth her dream of empowering and helping women form a sisterhood for success. They all look forward to celebrating their centennial in seven years along with their Ahepan brothers who celebrate this year AHEPA’s 100th anniversary. The proceeds from the event will go to sponsoring local and national DOP projects.
