Dessert sets a record

The 21st annual D9 Scholarship Dessert, which was held Nov. 29 at Eagle Point High School, set a new record. Donations of just over $9,000 were received at the event. That exceeds last year’s total by some $1,700.
    
It was a packed house that heard a tribute to Mike Bowles, who recently resigned at D9 Foundation CEO, and then heard his daughter Wendi Bowles Workinger, speak. She was a previous scholarship recipient. The EPHS band provided the musical entertainment.
   
The committee invests funds with the Oregon Community Foundation giving a portion each year for EPHS scholarships.
   
This is a unique event in that every dime goes to the fund or to scholarships. There are no expenses extracted. Committee members take care of any expenses.
   
Those still wishing to contribute may sent their checks to D9 Scholarship Committee, % Olive Lansburgh, P.O. Box 559, Eagle Point, OR 97524.
