Wisdom : the Poetry and Insights of Alexandra Apostolidis Sonenfeld
The Daughters of Penelope was the realization of Alexandra Apostolides Sonenfeld’s dream. Her desire was to create a woman’s organization and because of her perseverance and the encouragement of her husband, a devoted Ahepan, she formed Eos Chapter #1 with 25 charter members on November 16, 1929 in her home in San Francisco, California.
These poems were given to Joanne Booras, PGP in November of 1992 as a gift when Joanne visited Alexandra as the District #21 Governor during the Founder‘s Day weekend celebration in San Francisco. The Daughters of Penelope Foundation, Inc. has printed these poems, so that all can read and be inspired by the words of wisdom by our Founder, Alexandra. Further throughout the book you will find excerpts from personal writings of our founder, Alexandra entitled “Kaleidoscope of My Years”
May her memory be eternal.
