Congratulations are due to the Scholarship Committee for their very successful fundraiser, “Dueling Pianos.” All feedback indicates that a great time was had by all who attended.
It appears that the committee’s efforts have increased the fund by better than $1200. This constitutes the first significant increase in many years. We are excited to have this Scholarship Fund gaining ground again in order to offer this benefit to our members.
