What about the St. John's Educators' Scholarship Fund?

Mother's Day is just around the corner. I recall of the past how this day was used to bombard TalkShop readers with appeals for support of the events to continue funding the St. John's Educators' Scholarship Fund.
Is that admirable and worthy project still going on? If so why are the prominent voices of those past appeals so deafeningly silent now?
Should I assume that the project is so well funded that no further appeals are necessary? Or should we still send our little pittance in contributions whenever we can to the bank out there in Alabama?

Re: What about the St. John's Educators' Scholarship Fund?

Tony, The St. John's Educators' Scholarship Fund Annual Mother's Day Luncheon, is well on the way again. We are raising funds to provide assistance to maintain the now ten enrolled needy children, in their respective high schools in Grenada. This year's event promises to be one of the biggest ever. A packed program includes the recognition and award ceremony planned by the committee, under the distinguished patronage of District council member Jumanne Williams, Grenada's council General Derrick James, and Senator Kevin Parker. Entertainment will be provided by some of Grenada's best for your enjoyment. A number of persons, have unceasingly shown support to the scholarship fund from its inception. Others have gone the extra mile to provide assistance to the community in times of need or any disaster. Among those selected to be honored this year, is Ms. Dorothy Atherley Wade, who without any hesitation shows her concern and loyalty to the Gouyave community and Grenada as a whole, in many different aspects, when the need arises..So come out and support the cause, while mingling and having fun with your fellow home folks. Happy Mothers day to all mothers and fathers who act the part of Mothers.

FLYER CORRECTION: THE DONATION IS $50.00 NOT $65.00.

Re: What about the St. John's Educators' Scholarship Fund?

Thank you Carnice for your reply. I was simply wondering why the usual past bombardment on this TalkShop to support the Scholarship Fund has suddenly gone dead.

Because my now grown children have made Mother's Day so special to their mother, I won't be able to attend your show. Making matters worst, I'm now out here in Montclair, NJ, so if I were to try to come afterwards, I would appear even much later than I did last year while I was still in Brooklyn.
Btw, for those who would like to make a contribution despite their absence, should the check still be sent to the Redland(?) Bank in Alabama? Please provide details.

Finally, thanks for recognizing the great work that Ms. Dorothy Atherley Wade is doing in the Brooklyn community. Her great-great grandma, Miss Ceaty, who loved her so very much would have been very proud of her! In case you didn't know, until she died, I grew up with Miss Ceaty who lived in the home of her last child, Mrs. Idora DeCoteau, my mother. Which means that Miss Ceaty was my very dear grandma!!

Isn't it amazing how intertwined we Gouyave people are? That's one of the points highlighted in A PLACE CALLED GOUYAVE.
