FALLBROOK – The P.E.O. Santa Margarita Reciprocity Bureau of the Fallbrook area recently held its late summer luncheon and social. It was hosted by Chapter UH.

More than 40 women attended this fun day to renew friendships, socialize, celebrate the reestablishment of a high school scholarship for a senior girl from the Fallbrook area in 2018, and create membership ideas for their fine organization.

This year is P.E.O.’s 150th anniversary. The Town Hall style meeting was very productive. The theme was “membership” and they discussed successes, concerns, new and innovative ideas, and ways to increase membership for the future of the organization. Presently, there are five chapters in Fallbrook and the first one was established in the 1950s.

P.E.O. is a philanthropic international organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, loans and stewardship of Cottey College; and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.
