The PPWC actively supports charities in our community as well as making generous donations to our clubhouse’s upkeep and furnishings. A recent PPWC donation purchased a piano for the Terrace Room, which residents will enjoy for years to come.
Pecan’s ROMEOS (Retired Old Men Eating Out) will also meet next Thursday beginning at 11:30 a.m. in the Brazos Room. A good meal and superior conversation and fellowship are on the menu for the day as gentlemen are encouraged not only to attend, but also to bring ideas for future programs at ROMEO gatherings.
Outgoing Pecan board president Ron Cotton will address the Breakfast Club Wednesday morning giving a “state of the association review.” Come at 8 a.m. for breakfast and the program.
