Woman’s Club Honors Members For Service

Wednesday, May 5, 2010, we held our annual scholarship luncheon. The meeting  was called to order at 12:00 P.M. The pledge of allegiance was recited followed by the singing of God Bless America accompanied by Wanda Layton, Linda Reschert gave an inspiration prior to the serving of lunch.
Scholarship winners were La Shay Cummings winner of the nursing scholarship and John Gentry winner of the High School scholarship. Their family members were introduced and each winner gave us a short statement of their goals. La Shay has one more year of her nursing program and John stated that he would be attending Grossmont College to pursue a degree to teach history. Many thanks to Ellen Burke for continuing to chair this event.
Martha read the treasurer’s report which sounds pretty good. Hopefully by the June meeting we will be able to give a significant boost to the friends of the library.
