STATE CONVENTION…….We are planning several fund raising activities for convention.  One will be the silent auction.  Please begin to think of items you might have to bring for this and please bring things that you would like take home yourself.  Be mindful that this is not a yard sale but a fund raiser to perpetuate our scholarship program that was started by Jim Thomas, retired Postmaster of Belleview.  You may have seen the pictures in the recent Gazette where Kentucky awarded SEVENTEEN scholarships last year.

MEMORIAL DONATIONS….When Jeannie Wells, retired Postmaster of Longwood, passed away, her family asked for donations to be made to our scholarship fund.  Gifts such as this, or any donation, will be acknowledged with a thank you note from me.  Donations of any amount will be sincerely appreciated and certainly go for a great cause.

QUESTIONS?????  If you have any questions, ideas or suggestions for how we might improve our scholarship program, please email me at glendakflgirl@aol.com or give me a call, 352-516-8084.  I would like to hear from you.

See you at our state convention.

Scholarship Chairman
