FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Narcissus Chapter 289 of District 2 celebrated its 92nd Anniversary on November 21 with an Artoklasia service at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Fort Lauderdale.
The DOP was founded on November 16, 1929 by Alexandra Apostolides. At the age of 33, she was inspired and encouraged to form a woman’s organization to work with AHEPA. Today, the chapters continue to share a common value system and care for each other.
The chapter said in a statement via email: “It is very exciting to be celebrating 92 years of promoting Hellenism, Education, Civic Responsibility, Philanthropy, and Family & Individual Excellence. The Narcissus Chapter 289 has grown over the years and currently has 83 members who are well-educated and strong women. We work together to contribute to both our Hellenic and American communities. We learn from each other and continue the traditions of our organization so that they are passed on to future generations.”
“Our sisterhood is what bonds us together. We are sisters by heart,” exclaimed Stella Copulos Stringer, Narcissus Chapter President.
