Cannon Beach PEO will help fund scholarships Thursday, Nov. 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Butterfield Cottage, 570 Necanicum Dr. in Seaside, next to the Seaside Museum. The event is presented by Cannon Beach PEO, Chapter FB, and features handcrafted needlework, kitchen delights, holiday décor, and gift items. Sale proceeds benefit scholarships for women either continuing their education after high school graduation or returning to school after a break in their educational pursuits.
Members have been working on beautiful items not found locally, as well as gifts for children and adults. Autographed copies of Nancy Berry’s book “A Gift of Poems for Christmas” illustrated by Sally Steidel will be available. A limited number of Bill Steidel’s new children’s book will also be for sale.
Nancy Anderson will have her popular doll kits. A supply of magnolia leaves will be available for creative holiday décor. Contemporary needlework by Jan Lambert is ready for purchase, in addition to other members’ wide array of Thanksgiving and Christmas hand-crafted decorations, gifts and specialty food items to jump start the holidays.
The Cannon Beach Chapter currently sponsors three local women with scholarships: Alanna Kieffer and Rosemary Kinch of Seaside, and Amelia Fitch of Astoria.
Butterfield Cottage is located next to the Seaside Museum at 570 Necanicum Drive.
