Monday, January 28, 2013

Friends of the late Shelby Linahan are hosting a fundraiser to establish the Shelby Deines Linahan Scholarship Fund. A $500 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior who plans to enter the teaching field and carries a minimum grade point average of 3.5.

The fundraiser, a paddle party, will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2 in the community room of the VFW, located on Highway 60 in Monett.

Vendors will offer a variety of items, including purses, jewelry, make up, accessories, Tupperware, candles, alterations, designer jeans, apparel, and more.

A drawing for prizes and a silent auction will also be held during the event.

Event organizers are accepting orders for specially designed commemorative long or short-sleeve T-shirts, $10 and $15 respectively; sweatshirts, $20; and hoodies, $25. Sizes available include youth small to adult 3X.

To order commemorative apparel contact Jamie Dacy at jldacy_01@hotmail.com or jjnick1969@sbcglobal.net.

Donations may also be made to the Shelby Deines Linahan Scholarship Fund at US Bank.
