|Ready to go|
Chapters decorated flip flops with short summaries of how they made a splash during the year.
I decorated my chapter's entry.
P.E.O. founder Alice Coffin visited us, in the person of reenactor Lynn Rymarz. Alice was a school teacher who never married. She grew up a Methodist but changed to Episcopalian because she loved to dance!
Many of you remember the New York Beauty quilt that took me all of March to make. It was the backdrop for the LCWFF display. "Stars in her crown" refers to the time that Lulu, age 15 in 1870, wore her P.E.O. star pin in her hair. She wrote later that she didn't know any better, but she did it again (about 25 years later, probably in jest).
Each of the 40 chapters that sponsored a Lulu recipient this year got a tiara with a gold star (and the chapter letters).
(My t-shirt lists the original seven.)
Committee members Pat and Laura have become friends. Pat is the new chairman.
Sue is a double sister -- she and I share Alpha Gamma Delta as well as P.E.O.
It was an honor to serve on the Lulu committee. I learned a lot. I am grateful to all the P.E.O.s who sponsor candidates and generously contribute to the fund.
