Peggy Spear served on the PCM Board from 2003 until 2010, but continued to attend Mansions & Music (now Musical Interludes) concerts as well as enroll in a number of music history classes. As a professional fundraiser, Peggy felt it was important for PCM to have a planned giving program and became one of PCM’s Legacy Society's first members.
