FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The College Club of Fanwood-Scotch Plains will hold its spring fundraiser on Sunday, April 10, at the Plainfield Country Club. The luncheon entitled "An Afternoon in Wonderland" will begin at 11:00 a.m. and tickets are $50 a person. 

This event, along with the sale of the annual College Club calendar, are the primary fundraising activities to support the scholarships. Last May, the club awarded a total of $29,000.00 in scholarships to ten students, five of whom are high school seniors who graduate in June and five of who are currently attending college. 

Since the group's inception in 1933, its objective has been to increase the interest of local young women in going to college, and to provide “material aid” by way of scholarships.

The Plainfield Country Club is located at 1591 Woodland Ave., Edison, NJ. For more information , email CollegeClub.fsp@gmail.com.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.
