Guests and members will have the opportunity to help the cub raise funds for scholarships at this meeting by participating in both a silent and live auction, as well as other fund raising activities. All “Dollars for Scholars” will be awarded as scholarships to local high school seniors and non-traditional women students at Central Lakes College.

The luncheon is at noon, but doors will open at 10:30 a.m. to give attendees plenty of time to peruse the auction offerings and visit with members and guests. The charge for the lunch is $25. President Ann Swanson will lead a short meeting after the program, and Marilyn Sobiech will offer an inspirational message. Guests are always welcome. Information on joining the club or attending meetings is available by email at
