To know PLANO is to know Margo Cameron.  She has been the face and personality that has driven PLANO’s increased membership and sponsorship for decades and these achievements will not be forgotten.  Margo’s care and persistence is her enduring legacy, and we wish her the best in her more-than-earned retirement.  Many PLANO members have asked what they can do to contribute to Margo’s retirement, so we are extending this opportunity to PLANO members and friends of PLANO who may want to participate in her retirement gift online here.
