Successful Scholarship Fundraiser!

Thank you all for your efforts and help in our 3rd Annual Dinner and Silent Auction event held February 24, 2018.

It was a very successful and fun event.  We plan on holding this event again next February. Dinner from the Olive Garden was again very tasty and well received. A success. Our Guest Speaker was very good and provided lots of great information and hand-outs for those attending. Another success.

Our initial total from the event, per Trevor Hinckley, is – $2,732.00 for our scholarship and education funds.  A success for sure.

And one last special Thanks to Danielle Denne and WCF for hosting this event for the past 3 years.  It has worked out excellent for all.

Ritchey Science and Engineering Fair

Once again we sponsored the Ritchey Science and Engineering Fair at Weber State University.  This is a great and worthwhile event to continue supporting. Here is the overview/review for the event last Friday (3/24/17), with our ASSE judges and awards.

All judges, once again, were impressed with the quality of the projects and the quality of the students.  The Ritchey Science and Engineering Fair staff was again excellent to work with.

Thanks to Brad Whitworth, Kryz Tung, and Keith Crumpton.  Also – a big thank you to Ben Gerlach for continuing to help us sponsor this event.
