Presidential Theme

Grand President Treppiedi has embraced the theme, “The Power of We...CommUNITY” to lead the Daughters of Penelope Sisterhood. Unity promotes collaboration and teamwork.
"When we work together towards a common goal, we can achieve anything. Unity helps to build stronger relationships between people, and when we feel like we are part of a community we are more likely to support and help each other. I will promote a sense of unity that every member--every one of us--needs to be valued and acknowledged. I will keep the lines of communication open so we can work together for the Good of the Order. My values include treating everyone with respect, kindness, and integrity. I believe in giving back to my community and my passion is my Greek heritage through the Daughters of Penelope.
