!st Vice State Regent and local Regent of Court Dolores Suzanne Torrey awards Rylee Bezoni a $1,000 l scholarship

1st Vice State Regent and local Regent of Court Dolores Suzanne Torrey awards Rylee Bezoni a $1,000 l scholarship in memory of our past CDA sister Donna Lewellen at the school’s Award Night.  Donna’s husband Jim generously donated many treasures to the court and the court opened the sales to the community to fund the scholarship in Donna’s name. Jim and Donna shared their passion of teaching and education.  Congratulations Rylee as she will be attending Iowa State University.

Court Dolores #458,prepare for the Annual Baked Potato Scholarship Fundraiser. It was a record turn-out, dine in and carry out, with beautiful weather and people enjoying each other’s company in a beautiful setting.   Potatoes with a variety of toppings and delicious desserts were served.   Mary Berger, Kathy Hupke, Jolette Honsbruch, and Father Dan Rupp were instrumental in another successful Baked Potato/ Desert Supper.  This is the court’s main fundraiser for the year and all members know what their job will be. Many, many ( the year has been forgotten)  years ago Jolette Honsbruch came up with this idea and CDA members now look forward to working together and doing “their job”.  Father Dan did an exceptional job of providing us with free advertisement and support.  The CDA members’ families, Parish family, community members, neighboring parishes, and many others all join together for this annual event and delicious food.
