The Annual P.E.O. Chapter BK Flower Sale raised over $4,000 to be used for PEO projects which are dedicated to helping women.

Originally a small college society founded in 169, P.E.O. has grown from a membership of seven young girls in Iowa to more than a quarter million women in chapters across the United States and Canada, with related groups around the world. Minnesota has 154 chapters with more than 6,522 members.

P.E.O. is a charitable organization dedicated to providing educational advancement resources for women, and the money raised from the flower sale will be used to fund local P.E.O. projects including scholarships and grants available to women in the community. Undergraduate, graduate, and non-traditional women students are welcome to apply. For more information call Joann Schwartz at 373-6031.
