It's hard to believe it's September already. We have an active Fall ahead of us, with activities ongoing, and several coming up soon.
We are half-way through our Raffle to raise money for the Scholarship Fund.
So far, out of 200+ members, 11 have agreed to sell raffle tickets. We could use some more help and support. September 13-14 we have an opportunity to sell tickets and a gun show in Decatur TX. This is a great opportunity to help raise money for the Lamar Award fund. We can potentially raise $20,000.
I was recently talking to a former university president, who said that it's not unusual for a student in engineering or the sciences to spend $750 or more per semester on books alone, most of which have little or no resale value. So you can see how important it is for us to bolster our scholarship nest egg.
