I Got All My Sisters With Me

I have been a member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood (stands for Philanthropic Educational Organization) for almost six years now and it is a joy.  

An international nonprofit organization, P.E.O. raises money to educate women through scholarships, grants, awards and loans.  Check out the California State Chapter at www.peocalifornia.org.

I have served as Recording Secretary for two years, and President for two years of my local Chapter in Simi Valley. 

I have now been asked to join a Statewide Committee, which I will Chair in another two years.  It’s called the Scholarship Selection Committee.  We are responsible for awarding more than $70,000 to deserving women throughout the state of California.

At the California State Convention recently I jumped right in, working our exhibit booth.  There are more than 525 Chapters of P.E.O. in California and more than 1,000 attendees at the state Convention each year.
