As many of you are aware, Marge La Mar chaired the club's scholarship committee since its inception. With the recent loss of 'Marvelous' Marge, the club now needs someone new to chair the committee.
Two people --- Karen Allison and Mary Ann Wade --- and hopefully more, have volunteered to work on the scholarship committee. However, in order to function properly, the club must have a scholarship committee chairperson to coordinate the activities of the committee.
In general, the chair will be a liaison between the Charles County Scholarship Board and the garden club. This will include attending meetings of the Scholarship Board, complying with their deadlines as far as notification of our annual award intentions, reviewing applications and providing the Board with the names of our selected candidates. In addition, the chair will arrange for the presentation of scholarship awards at the annual high school graduations. Although the chair would have overall responsibility for this, he or she can certainly delegate any or all of these functions to other members of the committee.
WHO WOULD LIKE TO STEP UP AND TAKE ON THIS RESPONSIBILITY ?? WE ABSOLUTELY NEED A CHAIRPERSON IF WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE THIS COMMITTEE. THE CLUB'S CO-PRESIDENTS WILL SUPPORT AND PROVIDE GUIDANCE TO THE NEW CHAIR, BUT WE DO NEED SOMEONE TO CHAIR THIS COMMITTEE. ADDITIONAL MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE ARE ALSO NEEDED!
If you want to discuss, have any questions or want to volunteer, please give Mary a call at 443-486-5373 or Dianne at 301-932-0251.
Mary and Dianne
