There were more than 36 members and guests at the most recent Philanthropic Educational Organization’s Mad Hatter party.
The meeting took place in a private home in Lake Wildwood with lunch served by five of the members’ spouses.
A raffle took place to raise funds for the scholarship program. PEO is a philanthropic and educational organization interested in helping women “reach for the stars” by bringing them increased opportunities for higher education.
Two local chapters conduct a number of fundraising activities throughout the year with proceeds going to support Cottey College, a fully accredited two-year liberal arts college for women in Nevada, Mo., and many scholarships and loans for women attending
college and/or doing graduate work.
