On behalf of the MSG Educational Aid and the Howe’s Nurses Scholarship Fund, I am issuing a plea for your support. This goes out to non-members, as well as to members of the Grange.
The cost of a college education is increasing each year, and our funds to help these young people are limited. Any donation, however small it may be, made by individuals, Granges, or any other organization would be so appreciated! You do not need to be a Granger in order to donate to this worthy cause.
There are many creative ways that a Grange can use to raise money, such as a supper, a raffle, or a program. Think outside the box! Come up with an activity that would be lots of fun for those participating as well as would raise the funds for some young person’s dream to come true.
Last year, the Maine State Grange was able to award ten $500 scholarships to ten deserving students. With your generous donations, perhaps we can do even more this year.
Please send your donations to J. Patrick Elwell, Secretary/Treasurer, Educational Aid Fund, 136 Quaker Lane, Smithfield, ME 04978.
Thank you for doing your part in helping young adults, who will be our leaders of the future.
