The Philanthropic Educational Organization’s Reciprocity Bureau met recently to plan for its annual meeting this Saturday at Pickwick Gardens.

There are 15 chapters in Glendale, La Crescenta and La Cañada Flintridge. The international women's organization was founded in 1869 and members support women and education by offering scholarships and financial aid. Nearly 88,000 women have benefited from the five educational grants, loans and awards offered by the group as well as special projects.

More than 700 women in the Glendale Reciprocity direct their efforts toward the advancement of women.
