March Recap

Spring Greetings Everyone!

I am attempting a new format for our newsletters, so please be forgiving of any mistakes and know that I welcome constructive feedback about the format and content!

The March 8th meeting was held at Patty Cardin's home with Jenifer McCoy serving as co-hostess. Sisters enjoyed being picked up and dropped off curbside via Larry's fabulous golf cart services! Delectable St. Patrick's day themed treats greeted sisters upon their arrival for pre-meeting fellowship. The program was conducted by Ellen Brooks, who provided information about the upcoming workshops and convention. She also encouraged sisters to share their experiences of attending convention and local chapter workshops.

Twenty-three sisters and three visitors (all from Chapter A in Atlanta) were in attendance. Installation of officers was facilitated by Patty Cardin and our new officer list is below:

President: Amy Clines

Vice President: Barbara Brandenburgh

Recording Secretary: Carm Myers

Corresponding Secretary: Claren Hill

Treasurer: Marjorie Harlan

Chaplin: Sandy Harris

Guard: Alana Losonsky

Committee Reports:

- The social for March was dinner at Woodstone Grill on Whitesville Road on Tuesday, March 29th. Ten sisters and three BIL's joined together to enjoy delightful food and beverages.

- Regina reported that Amy Clines will be the ELF speaker at the Scholarship Luncheon at convention on May 14th. She encouraged sisters to attend and distributed registration forms (which can also be found on the PEO International website.

- Patty distributed star dishes and asked that sisters use them to collect loose change and then bring them in as a donation to the chapter. If you didn't get a star dish, feel free to reach out to Patty (but any dish that will hold change should work just fine!) : )

Other Discussion:

- Once the installation was complete, Ellen Brooks presented outgoing President, Barbara Brandenburgh, with her president's gavel and a beautiful cala lily plant. Amy presented Barbara a metal paperweight forged with a marguerite symbol from a local artisan in Montreal.

- Olivia Moses and Vicki Yoe were presented with their emblems.

- Nancy Sills reported that Nicole Convis has moved to Atlanta and will be seeking a PEO chapter there.

- Nancy also brought news that Amanda will be home for the April meeting and is eager to see and visit with everyone!

A Georgia PSP enters Chapter Eternal

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news about the passing of Mary Jane Huff, mother to our very own Jenifer McCoy. Please see the information below provided by the state executive committee and continue to keep Jenifer and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

Mary Jane Huff passed into Chapter Eternal on March 31, 2016. She served on the Georgia Executive Board from 1977 to 1983. Her theme was "A P.E.O. Garden of Love" and chapters AK & AL were granted charters at her convention in Atlanta. She was a member of Chapter AB, Alabama, at her death and lived near her daughter Kathy Lafuse, AY/IN, in Indiana. She has another daughter, Jenifer McCoy, AI/GA. She identified the Educational Loan Fund as her favorite project if chapters or individuals wish to make a donation in her memory.
