BBQ Dinner and Silent Auction

Chairman: Kathy Stringer
First Christian Church 1800 W Hunt Street.  Tickets $10 for adults and $5.00 for kids 14 and over.  Get your tickets and a poster at the meeting. Sell your tickets and put the posters up wherever you can.  Only you can make this a successful event.
*Be sure to get items for the BBQ Fundraiser’s Silent Auction.  You should have gotten some business that gave last year to go by and ask for an item this year. Sell you tickets, if you sell them for less than the fact value or give them away you need to give the club the full value of the tickets.  We have expenses and need to keep to a budget. Need ticket? Need donation forms? See Dennis Williams

McKinney Education Foundation

Our club gives two $2000 and a $250 “Sophomore of the Year” scholarships each year.  It is our goal to build up enough funds in MEF to cover our scholarships each year without taking from our budget Remember you can brag about birthdays and anniversaries and put that money toward MEF. Bad News-Good News.  We did not quite meet our goal to receive the matching fund before December 31st. But, the donner was very kind and saw that we were making a good faith effort and matched our funds! So, we now have enough in MEF to fund one $2,000 scholarship each year.
The award ceremony will be Friday May 12th Our President Michelle will be there to give out our two scholarships assisted by Carol Winters.
