Four scholarships were awarded by the Brookridge Woman's Club on May 17. Recipients Benjamin Witherell, Sarah Lynch, Aimee Cooper and Tiffany Faulkingham each received $2,000.

The group held various fundraisers throughout the year, including an annual fashion show and bingo bash, as well as weekly Tuesday night bingo games, raising more than $8,000 for the club's scholarship fund. Heading this year's scholarship committee were Patty Sharp and Marilyn Duffeck.

Notes of thanks

Once again, my faith in my fellow man has been restored! I have arthritis and use a cane. On June 1, I was pulling my garbage containers out to the street. A man in a blue pickup truck passed, then pulled into my neighbor's drive to turn around.

The man drove into my driveway and said, "I'll take that for you." Of course I thanked him, but would like to do it publicly. I really appreciate his kindness.
