PEO raises money for community projects

Sixteen members of PEO Chapter DB met at Eastmoor Methodist Church on Feb. 2. Co-hostesses Joni Crofoot, Diane Leiker, and Eileen Sieger prepared a Valentine’s Day dessert. Sieger presented a program on “Special Days.”

During the business meeting, it was announced that a local recipient had received a state Sunflower Grant to help pay medical expenses. The finance committee reported that enough money had been raised to donate $500 to five national PEO projects — the International Peace Scholarship, Continuing Education Fund, Cottey College, Educational Loan Fund, and the Scholar Awards.

An additional $150 was donated to the International Peace Scholarship and Sunflower Grants in memory of Mary Costello, Joyce Smith, and Jean Case.
