TORONTO – The Daughters of Penelope Mycenae Chapter 220, Toronto, held their milestone 70th Anniversary Celebration Luncheon on April 10. The event was scheduled for 2020 but due to the pandemic it was postponed for two full years.
In a statement via email, the Chapter said: “We were very happy that finally we were able to celebrate the birthday of our chapter. The luncheon was a big success, joyful and happy. Many Daughters and friends got together that special day to recollect our 70-year long memories and to cherish them again. We were honored by the attendance of many dignitaries from the Toronto Greek Community and from the Daughters.”
“This amazing success was the result of the tireless efforts of the organizing committee’s two co-chairs Gloria Bazos and Anastasia Manolakos, and the organizing committee,” the statement continued. “We also honored three wonderful ladies for their love and long dedication to our chapter, 60-year member Pat Balles, and two 70-year members Kay Kerhoulias and Koula Lakas, a 70-year member. Many happy returns Mycenae Chapter 220!”
