SCHOLARSHIPS

In the past our club donated $25,000 to the Winneconne Foundation. Since then we have continuously donated funds to this perpetual fund, the interest of which is used to fund a yearly scholarship to a Winneconne High School student and Neenah High School Student who is planning to go into a health related field.  Tens of thousands of dollars have been awarded to students with this scholarship program.
