P.E.O. Chapter FK
P.E.O. Chapter FK met for a regular business meeting Sept. 27 at the Council Bluffs Country Club. The program was on Hope Net Ministries, and was presented by Sue Jungman and Jean Stephens. It was very informative and gave chapter members a chance to consider how we might individually reach out to the many women who are in need.
Also, FK sister Charmaine Kaiser involved all of the chapter in a fun game helping members to know more about the P.E.O. educational loan fund. Highlights of the International Convention were discussed, and the chapter agreed that the State of Iowa did an awesome job in carrying out the theme, “Welcome Home.”
The next meeting will be a social on Oct. 11. The chapter will take a scenic tour (hoping for pretty fall foliage) to Malvern and have lunch there together.
