These 26 old friends (and not so old) met last month at the White Horse Village home of Marcia Hoover to celebrate a 70th anniversary. The women, most of whom are current or former Swarthmore residents, are members of Chapter P of PEO, which is one of the largest women’s philanthropic groups in the U.S. Chapter P was founded on April 17, 1946 in Swarthmore, and is still going strong, according to Marcia Hoover, who has been a member for more than 50 of those years. Chapter president Marcia Bloom recognized four such longtime members with certificates and flowers, and read an amusing summary of the annual letters of chapter presidents over the last 70 years.
