DOP Meandros Chapter 168 Supports the Canadian Brain Tumour Walk

MONTREAL, QUEBEC – On April 3, the Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Meandros Chapter 168 held a virtual Afternoon Tea.

To date, they have raised $1,258.75 towards the Canadian Brain Tumour Foundation.

The virtual fundraiser was fun and educational. Sister Linda Barnett from Hamilton, Ontario, owner and founder of the Travelling Tea Room, explained the history of tea.

Governor Chris Pappis, District 23 Treasurer Eleni Agas, Maids of Athena District 23 Secretary Cristina Saaverda-Mamounis, Past DOP Canadian President Betty Drakontaidis, and Member of Parliament for Saint-Laurent Emmanuella Lambropoulos.
