Ευφροσύνη #292

The Ottawa Chapter of the Daughters of Penelope was born in 1957 and was named Euphrosvne (one of the three Graces) Chapter 292. Christine Alexiade was the first President.

From 1957, and for the next three decades the Chapter had periods of inactivity, but was reactivated on April 17, 1985.

The Ottawa Chapter has delivered tremendous work in the community through fundraising initiatives and events.

These accomplishments continue to strengthen the status of women in sociely and our community. We have raised funds for medical research, supported educational initiatives for our youth, promoted women in our communities and provided a helping hand to those in need.
