Daughters Of Penelope
The Daughters of Penelope was the realization of Alexandra Apostolides' dream. Her desire was to create a woman's organization. Because of her perseverance and the encouragement of her husband, Dr. Emanuel Apostolides, a devoted AHEPAN, she formed EOS Chapter#1 with 25 charter members on November 16, 1929 in San Francisco, California. She was elected the first Grand President of the organization in 1931.
The objectives of the Daughters of Penelope are to promote Hellenism, Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, and Family & Individual Excellence.
