It's not every day that an organization with ties to Glendale celebrates its 100th anniversary. But on Wednesday, Chapter AH of the Philanthropic Educational Organization held that celebration at the Glendale home of Marilyn Butler.
About 125 members of Chapter AH, former members of AH, visitors from other chapters and guests were ready to party — albeit in a lady-like way. An afternoon tea with tea sandwiches and sweets satisfied the palate.
Co-Presidents Jan Ashford and Betty Swift welcomed their audience. Leni Richardson, in charge of Reciprocity, was next in command, having reached out to other PEO chapters to join AH members in their celebration.
Among the revelers from Glendale were Judy Ritchie, Mary Margaret Smith, Peggy Cooley, Diane Johnson and Jeri Benton, with her guest Monica Sierra. Those with famous husbands included Sally Perkins, wife of former Glendale Mayor Jim Perkins, who was recognized at the recent Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. Also present was Valery Moorhead, widow of the late U.S. Congressman Carlos Moorhead.
