Merry Widows lend a hand

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Merry Widows Society of Nevada City. If you have not heard of the Merry Widows, it is time you got to know this group of women committed to the true spirit of community. The generous support I have received through the Merry Widows Society of Nevada City Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 has made it possible for me to continue my education. I am proud to report that I have been admitted to the California State University, Chico, for the fall 2007, where I intend to pursue my bachelor’s degree in statistics.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
