Congratulations to Katie Kopan, Alexandra Reder, and Maria Cook, the recipients of the Philoptochos Scholarships. We wish them continued success as they pursue their college studies.

Philoptochos has been busy throughout the summer months with the “Feed the Hungry” outreach ministry. Penny Jenkins and her committee prepared and served 60 clients of the Toledo Gospel Rescue Mission each month. Many of our members volunteered and were generous with their time and talents by helping during the festival workshops. The “Greece Uncorked” committee has been busy planning a beautiful fun-filled evening of wine tasting, silent auctions, delicious food, and music. Donations will be made to the Aurora House and Noah’s House. Mark your calendar and plan to attend this fundraiser on November 4th.

I am looking forward to working with the Board and Membership. I welcome two new members to the Board, Yanula Stathulis and Maria Kopan. Meetings will be held on the 2nd and 3rd Mondays of the month in the Ahepa Room at 7:00 p.m.  On behalf of the Board and Membership, I’d like to thank Susie Doukides for all of her hard work and leadership throughout her presidency. Job well done, Susie!

Philoptochos is: One Woman Asking Another Woman to Care.
