Our 3rd Annual Wild Things – Dragonfly Ball on Saturday evening was a rousing success! One hundred sixteen guests attended and, as you saw, the evening was filled with fellowship, fine food and drink, great music and dancing, and most of all … overwhelming support for PEEC’s mission!  Thanks to you, we achieved this year’s objective for the 21st Century Sustainability Campaign and have now reached the quarter million mark in campaign support since the campaign’s inception in 2013.  Thanks to the generosity of PEEC’s friends, we also raised more than $5,000 toward our 2016 campership assistance fund. Your financial support has made a real difference!  Thank you very much.
