Pepperettes Mother-Daughter Event set for Sunday

Ponca City Now - August 22, 2016 9:35 am

The annual Pepperette Mother-Daughter Event, which this year is a Luau, will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday Aug. 28 at the Po-Hi Commons.

Pepperettes is a social and service club for eighth and ninth grade girls. Any girl in the Ponca City area can join. Pepperettes is a club that promotes social responsibility while having fun. All through the year, the girls work to raise money or needed items for different non-profit groups in the city of Ponca.

Girls may decide at the mother-daughter event to join the organization if they have not already done so. Dues are $10 and an optional T shirt is $20. All of the girls in attendance, both new members and those who joined during enrollment, will earn a point for attending the event. If current members bring a new girl to join they will receive an addition point.

Points accumulate to allow eighth graders to run for office in their ninth grade year. Points for ninth graders accumulate to earn the privilege of walking in the promenade at the Winter Dance in February. Bring your mom or any adult female to join you for an afternoon of fun. Church attire is recommended.
