Scholarships offered by Unit 97

By Evelyn Long - The Sentinel

Applications for scholarships being offered by Jenkins-Vaughan Auxiliary Unit 97, Cardington, are due May 1. The date was set when unit members met for their monthly meeting Feb. 18.

Members also agreed to send no more than four girls to Buckeye Girls State this summer.

Barb Arndt, chairman of the VA & R committee, asked that hours and dollars donated be turned in to her by April 1.

Members agreed to send $50 to the Morrow County Trash Bash project.

Audrey Leonard reported 200 people had attended the recent Candidates’ Night where unit members served refreshments.

Because the March meeting date falls on Election Day, it was agreed to cancel that meeting. At the close of this meeting, five members worked on neck pillows.

During an earlier meeting the unit learned that its Community Service group was awarded first place in the district in the spring report.

March is the deadline for turning in Ditty Bags that will be taken to Chillicothe and poppies have been ordered for the May Poppy program.

The unit received thank you notes for their donations to the Food Pantry in December. The next meeting of the unit will be held April 21.
