Let’s begin this year celebrating the history and legacy of our P.E.O. Sisterhood.  We are a women’s organization like no other group I know.   We celebrate women through our virtues, we empower women to excel through our educational philanthropies and we have been doing this for over 150 years!

A Note of Thanks

With grateful hearts and a touch of sadness,

we want to acknowledge the wonderful leadership, support and love that Beth Staples showed us all,

not only during her year as President but throughout her entire 5-year tenure on the State Board.  Her impact will continue to be felt throughout the State.

We are sad only because we couldn’t celebrate her achievements in person at convention ~ but hold on ~

we will definitely celebrate at our next convention!

In addition, thanks are extended to 2020 Convention Hostess Chapters ~ H,AU, AO, AS, H and C. 

Plans were in place for a fun-filled convention only to be stopped abruptly just as everything was in the “fine-tuning” stages.  We have no doubt the work they did will be of great value to the 2021 Convention Hostess Chapters.

To all the convention committees and especially the

general chairmen and finance chairmen ~

virtual hugs and huge thanks!  

NJ State P.E.O. Executive Board

I truly believe in the Power of P.E.O.  Our 150-year history and the legacy our Founders established prove that.  I want us all to Embrace the Power, Share the Power and Live the Power. 

I welcome your enthusiasm, I encourage your participation,

I cherish your support and I look forward to the year ahead!

                                                                         ~Helen Wolfmeyer
