PEO Chapter AU/BZ recently met in the home of Beth Turchi with Vickie Coleman and JoAnn Ruggeri serving as co-hostesses.
Mayoral candidate Debbie Hollingsworth was the guest speaker.
Hollingsworth was a delight and her message was informative as well as educational as she related her plans for Pine Bluff, should she be elected. Next, Martha Sue Pearce, president, called the meeting to order with 26 members attending. Letters of acceptance for membership were read from Sharon Wyatt and Elaine Dial. Both ladies will be initiated at the next meeting.
Treasurer Lynn Castleberry reported on the upcoming pecan sale. The pecans will sell for $9 per pound, with money going to fund PEO projects. Members will be contacting family and friends to take orders for the pecans.
Following the meeting a drawing was held. Items brought by members were selected as names were drawn. Lastly, everyone enjoyed humming bird and chocolate cake.
PEO is philanthropic educational organization.
