2nd Annual Monmouth Area Vocational Scholarship Fundraiser Has Fishing, Trivia, Dinner, and More!

On Saturday, August 20th, the Monmouth VFW Post 2301, Monmouth Masonic Lodge 37, Boy Scout Troop 705, and the Warren County Girl Scout Service Unit 882 will host their second annual Monmouth Area Vocational Scholarship Fundraiser. The day will begin at 8am with a fishing derby at Citizen’s Lake for those 12 years old and younger until noon. Later that evening at the Monmouth VFW, a trivia night will take place from 5 to 7 pm, along with a dinner, raffles, entertainment, silent auction, bake sale, and awards for the fishing derby. Local Mason Tim Vice shares how the scholarships funded from this event are provided in the area:

“When you give a child a vocational scholarship, they are more apt to stay in the area and this helps our community out. It is a good cause, and it is just great that we can do something like this for kids. Last year we put out six vocational scholarships at $500 each; two for West Central, two for Monmouth-Roseville High School, and two for United.”

More details for the second annual event can be found on Facebook by searching Monmouth Area Vocational Scholarship.
