For many years, Silver Star Rotary has provided modest scholarships to a grad from each of our local schools.
 
Our scholarship programme has reached another milestone in that the 2017 distribution from our Community Foundation of North Okanagan (CFNO) SS Rotary Education Fund will more than cover our Achievement Awards of 5 x $250 and our 2 x $1250 Scholarships (Fulton and Kal). No top up will be required in 2018. There will be a $4,203.47 distribution and a $453.47 surplus.
 
To enhance our success with scholarships, I am again inviting members to donate to our CFNO Fund, and I will match the donations made from now until Dec 31st, up to a $2000 total. Your donation cheque of any amount can be made out to the CFNO.  I will collect cheques at our meetings, and deliver them to the CFNO office at the People Place for you.
 
Thank you for your support of our Scholarship Programme – Jim & Anne-Marie Kanester
