The CFUW Organizing Committee for the Town & Country Garden Tour presented a cheque for $12 185 to the CFUW VP of Scholarships, Laura Hare. Proceeds from this garden tour support scholarships for graduating students from the public and separate secondary schools in Hastings and Prince Edward who are pursuing post-secondary education.
Local area scholarship recipients have been presented with their awards. CFUW member Linda Richardson is seen here presenting to PECI graduate Emily Algar.
This year for the first time, a bursary of $2500 will be given to an Indigenous Journalism student sponsored jointly by Loyalist College, Journalists for Human Rights and CFUW Belleville and District.
This is in addition to the regular scholarships given out by the club. Thank you to all who went the extra distance to make this happen.
