Kim & I thank the NAPUS Family & Friends of Florida for your many cards, phone calls, prayers and support during the last several weeks as we went thru the process of losing our son, Tony. The contact with you all has really helped and we wanted to make sure you knew that it was greatly appreciated and needed. Thank you for the bottom of our hearts in our time of need.
Love Bob & Kim Arsneault.

FLORIDA NAPUS SCHOLARSHIP

Each year, dependent on available funds, Florida NAPUS offers one or more college scholarships to young women and men.  These funds can be used for enrollment in higher education programs at any college or vo-tech institute of higher education after graduation from high school.  Any child, grandchild, or ward of an active or retired Postmaster who is a member in good standing of Florida Chapter of NAPUS can apply for a scholarship.

The DEADLINE for application was April 15th. Good luck to all applicants.

OTHER NEWS FROM OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

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.
