Dollars for Scholars call for help Kimball Area Dollars for Schol- ars (KADFS) is a non-profit orga- nization with the sole purpose of awarding scholarships to Kim- ball Area high school seniors in helping them further their edu- cation. Seniors receive KADFS scholarships through an applica- tion process that is done in March each year. Businesses, memori- als, groups and the local Dollars for Scholars Chapter in the Kim- ball area sponsor or donate money to support these ongoing scholar- ships. Many colleges have match- ing grants for Dollars for Scholars scholarships. This is a huge incen- tive since the award then becomes double if the student attends one of these matching-grant colleges. In order for us to continue being a viable organization to help stu- dents pursue their education, we are calling on the community for help. We are in need of volunteers with some fresh new ideas to pro- mote our organization. We meet the first Wednesday of each month, September through May. Meetings are at 7 p.m. in the Jr. High Com- mons area at the high school. Our next meeting is Jan. 6. We do not meet during the summer months. Other areas where volunteers are needed is the scholarship com- mittee, the finance committee and help at sporting events in promot- ing our local DFS chapter. The annual Dollars for Scholars fundraiser will be held May 15, at the high school. This is a catered banquet with entertainment and a silent auction. Help is needed for selling tickets, gathering auction items, setting up and helping with the silent auction and decorating for the banquet. Scholarships will be awarded to the recipients that evening. At the present time, we are in need of a secretary. Joyce Burg- staler, after 13 years of dedicated service, has resigned. Thank you, Joyce, for all you did in getting the Chapter started and, all the work you've done since inception of the organization. It is appreciated. If you have questions, please feel free to call Paula Capes, (320) 398-3337, Gall Schiefelbein, (320) 398-8400 or Alice Robinson, (320) 398-5902. We would like to see you at the meeting on Jan. 6.
