Recently PEO Chapter IM of Lodi met at the home of Patsy Lithco and had its installation of officers for 2011-12. At the April meeting, Lodi Chapter IM celebrated its 75th birthday at the home of Tess Wright. The new officers are Jo Sandelin, president; Pam Brady, treasurer; Tess Wright, guard; Claire Lima, vice-president; Susan Wise, chaplain; Carol Dinkle, secretary; and Mary Hoff, corresponding secretary.

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

PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization), one of the pioneer societies for women, was founded on Jan. 21, 1869, by seven students at Iowa Wesleyan College in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. Originally a small campus friendship society, PEO soon blossomed to include women off campus. Today, PEO has grown from that tiny membership of seven to almost a quarter of a million members in chapters in the United States and Canada.

The PEO Sisterhood is passionate about its mission: promoting educational opportunities for women. Our sisterhood proudly makes a difference in women's lives with six philanthropies that include ownership of a two-year women’s college, Cottey College, and five programs that provide higher educational assistance.
