As recorded by R.Ex. Comp.J.R. Doug Wilson, The Grand Chapter Charities of Medical Research & Scholarships and Bursary’s have joined together for 2015/2016 to raise awareness and funding. We are requesting the Grand Superintendents to actively spearhead leadership with their District Chapters.
As reported, it is vitally important that during your term as Grand Superintendent you strive to raise the awareness of these two great and important Grand Chapter Charities.
Please consider holding a Chapter or District fundraising event such as a BBQ, Corn Roast, Golf Tourney or Fish Fry.
A very special raffle, unlike any other, is offered this year in the form of draw for a “donated” prize of a 19.3 kg. (42.5 lbs.) Brazilian Amethyst centre piece named “Purple Dolphin”. This rare and genuine stone has an appraised value of $5 to 7$ (five to seven) Thousand dollars. Just think of how this would look in your curio cabinet. It would certainly make quite a conversation piece.
Scholarships & Bursary’s and Medical Research look forward to YOUR support in 2015 – 2016 in supporting our Grand Chapter Charities.
I am pleased to report that Bursary applications are arriving, albeit slowly, so please forward them to me as quickly as possible so the Committee may process them in a timely fashion. Thank you & have a successful year.
Scholarship & Bursary Committee
