Local chapter of group is closing

It is with great sadness that I announce the closure of the Everett Chapter of the Daughters of Penelope. The chapter started in Everett in 1948 and has been active all these years, connecting women of Greek heritage and doing many philanthropic and social activities. We, like many other organizations, are aging out and the younger generations do not seem to be interested. Most of us have been members our entire adult lives and it has always been a part of our tradition. We have made many attempts over the years to create interest for the people living in the area, but the loss of members the last couple years has made it difficult to carry on.
