One of our most rewarding and favorite events each year is the presentation of scholarship awards to graduating seniors from local high schools.
That’s what we’ll be doing at this Thursday’s 6:15 p.m. dinner meeting at Quigley’s, and we’d sure like to have you in attendance to help show Rotary’s strong commitment to supporting youths in the community.
We will be presenting $1,000 scholarship checks to one student each from Columbia, Maple Hill, and Rensselaer high schools. They will be accompanied by school officials and parents, so we need a solid turnout of SRC members.
And, a special guest — Tom Burdick, president of the District’s Gift of Life — will be visiting to give us a brief update on that organization that we continue to support in its lifesaving efforts for children from abroad.
The dinner menu includes an entree of roast pork, chef’s selection of side dishes, antipasto salad, bread, dessert, and beverages. And, the cash bar is available as always.
If you haven’t yet made your reservation for Thursday, please do so with dinner coordinator Debbie Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Tuesday evening so she can arrange for adequate food and seating and avoid last-minute confusion.
