Scholarship News Since Lakewood High School canceled the Senior Awards Night this year, which is the usual venue we use to announce and present each year’s scholarship winners, we have been scrambling to find an appropriate way to make the scholarship presentations. This year, we are tentatively planning to make the SPY’s and Sunfield Community Foundation scholarships and other award presentations at the Farmers Picnic in August. Specific details will follow as things firm up. Stay tuned. Looking For A Few Helpers As we reported in the last Newsletter, Centennial Acres has graciously announced that they will be putting on a special golf event to benefit the SPY’s. This is their event and is not to be confused with the rescheduling of the previously canceled SPY Shootout Golf Tournament. However, Centennial has indicated that the SPY’s are welcome to do some related activities in order to raise some much-needed funds for their programs. So, we are looking for some volunteers to sell 50 / 50 raffle tickets to the golfers and to collect money at the Las Vegas Holes. The special golf outing takes place on Sunday, June 21st., starting at Noon. If interested in volunteering, or if you would like further information, please call Steve Grosshans at 269-838-6459. We welcome anyone in the community who would like to help out!
