EDDYVILLE — The Chapter DG P.E.O. Tasting Bee will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the Eddyville Elementary Attendance Center.
At the Tasting Bee, Chapter DG P.E.O. members make dishes of some favorite recipes. All dishes are on tables with names, and you get a taste of whatever you would like to put on your plate as you go through the line. All the recipes are put into a recipe booklet, and every paid ticket receives the booklet of recipes. The $6 tickets are sold prior to event as well as at the door.
Proceeds from the day go to the local Chapter DG scholarship fund. Scholarships are awarded to the Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont senior girls who have plans to attend any college and have been accepted to the college of their choice. Through the application process with the chapter, members vote for the recipients. The number of scholarship and the amounts have varied depending on the funds the group has available each year. Over the last 10 years, they have given $8,000 to 31 recipients.
