Program for June 4
The Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation, Inc. is the charitable arm of Wilmington Women in Business, Inc. (WWB). With Rita Wilkins as chair of the scholarship committee, they award annual scholarships to adult women based on need, academic record and potential for success. They also provide mentoring support through WWB members. They provide scholarships for women who had to interrupt their college education for a variety of issues and support these women through commencement so that they emerge with a renewed sense of self-esteem and financial independence and assist them in networking when they graduate. At the same time, the scholars serve as role models to their children and others who might be considering educational pathways to a better future.

Thought for the Week:

Why do they put pictures of criminals up in post offices? What are we expected to do? Write them letters and send birthday cards?

Can’t make our meeting?

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

All Rotarians are welcomed to attend another club’s meeting. Be prepared to pay for your meal and bring the makeup slip back to our secretary for attendance and invoice credit.
