FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – The Daughters of Penelope (DOP) Narcissus Chapter 289 held the ‘Don’t Say OXI to Loukoumades’ event at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church on October 30.
Led by chapter member and Loukoumades Queen Karyl Zitis, the dedicated team helped raise money to support Penelope House in Mobile, Alabama; Limbitless Solutions in Orlando, FL; the LAM Foundation; Penelope Place in Brockton, Massachusetts; the DOP Foundation; and the Penelopean Daycare in Athens, Greece.
The Greek pastry of fried dough drenched in syrup topped with walnuts, cinnamon and powdered sugar was enjoyed by members of the congregation during the coffee hour after the Sunday service and many took orders home.
They were able to share these sweets during a reception for His Grace Bishop Sevastianos of Zelon who was visiting for the ‘OXI’ Day Celebration at St. Demetrios.
Members of Narcissus Chapter 289 including Erin Ryan, Stella Stringer, Cindy Zitis, Eva Planakis, Susan Selimos, Arlene Touris, Danielle Smith, Marianne Kritikos, Lea Planakis, Stephanie Balaskas, and Irene Tsingelis proved once again that the ‘Power of We,’ the national DOP theme, is alive and well in South Florida.
KANSAS CITY, Mo — Missouri prosecutors said Tuesday that two men have been charged with murder in last week’s shooting that killed one person and injured 22 others after the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade.
