Peggy regularly entertains at local venues serving the older residents of Philadelphia and its suburbs.  Here are a couple of examples of promotional materials relating to her appearance at Bryn Mawr Terrace this past spring.  Of course, Peggy does this without compensation as a gift to her fans and to all those who truly appreciate the repertoire she chooses, that of the Great American Songbook.
On May 13, Peggy journeyed to nearby Bryn Mawr, where she entertained the residents of Bryn Mawr Terrace, a retirement home for older adults.  We are grateful to Bryn Mawr Terrace public relations manager Nan Lansinger for providing us with these photos.
Peggy is caught here facing her audience, who were most receptive to her program of material from the Great American Songbook, songs of such beloved composers as Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and others from the first half of the 20th century.
Here Peggy joins friend Nancy Bloom at Bryn Mawr Terrace for a bit of a chat.
Periodically, Peggy travels to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to visit with her granddaughter Haley, who lives there with her mother Susan, widow of Peggy's son Jon.  This year Peggy's daughter Suzy, who was visiting from her home in California, joined the gathering in Wilkes-Barre, and your editor was lucky enough to be invited to meet all the members of the Rudofker family there on June 19th.  Click the image at left and join us. 
On Saturday, October 10th, Peggy traveled to New York City to participate in a tribute to the landmark Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation of Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates in which Peggy starred on NBC television in 1958.  Click here or the image at left for much more on the event.
