The Genoa Community Women’s Club awarded four $2,000 college scholarships in 2017 to Amanda Anderson, Heather Gathman, Cody Bradshaw and Rachel Hughes.
The students from Genoa-Kingston High School were selected based on involvement in the community through volunteer work or service projects, academic records and financial need. In the past five years, the club has awarded $40,000 in scholarships.
Proceeds from the club’s annual Wonderful World of Christmas Craft & Vendor Show determine the scholarship amount each year. This year’s event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Genoa-Kingston High School, 980 Park Ave. in Genoa.
The 29th annual event will feature more than 140 local and regional crafters and vendors, clubs and organizations, a food court and more than 100 instant door prizes. A visit with Santa will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Guests re invited to bring a camera.
The Genoa Community Women’s Club meets at 6:30 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month at Resource Bank in Genoa. All women from Genoa, Kingston and surrounding towns are invited to attend.
