It's graduation time! Congratulations to all the graduating Seniors. All through the year the Willapa Harbor Lions host the students of the month from each high school. They come to our regular meeting and have lunch where their advisers or school principal tells what they have been doing. It is amazing what these students of today are involved in outside of the school curriculum, in addition to the regular school classes. Then the students get their picture in paper.
We have just awarded $7,500 in scholarships to students in each of the three schools.
Now we are seeking applications for the Willapa Harbor Lions Continuing Education Scholarship. This is open to all students who have graduated from our three local High Schools and are in college as a junior, senior or graduate student and have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. The scholarship is for $1,000. An applicant must send a letter of interest along with a copy of an official college transcript to Willapa Harbor Lions, P O Box 333, Raymond, WA and must be submitted no later than July 31st.
Our next project is bringing the circus to town on Thursday, the 4th of June in South Bend in the large grass area across from Chen's Restaurant. Tickets are on sale now at several locations.
The Willapa Harbor Lions wish to thank the community for their support of our projects throughout the year by purchasing hot dogs, french fries, calendars, rain derby entries, cookbooks and nuts, so we are able to provide these scholarships.
If you have an interest in these great Lion projects give Dick Woods a call at 509-670-6174 or Ron Bell at 360-581-1767 or come join us for lunch any Thursday at Noon at the Barge restaurant.
