The Papoose Club gave $5500 at the April and May meetings
At the last two meeting Papoose supported four great organizations: WRHS W.A.T.E.R., I Have a Dream Foundation, Girls on the Run, and the Kids Mountain Fund. W.A.T.E.R. has been raising money to install six refillable water fountain stations at the High School with the goal of hydrating and raising awareness of the number of disposable plastic bottles that are not unleashed into the world if people refill their bottles. I Have a Dream Foundation was awarded funds to purchase Chrome books for use during their afterschool program. Girls on the Run was granted funds towards the costs of supplies, training materials, insurance etc. The Kids Mountain Fund received monies for scholarships to kids in need towards tuition of mountain recreation programs.
Two New Lifetime Members Inducted
The Papoose Club annually celebrates those who have been members for ten years by awarding them the status of Lifetime Members. This year we celebrated Tizz Miller and Karin Horvath, both of whom have generously served the Papoose Club as officers, event chairs, and volunteers for ten years! Congratulations and thank you ladies!
