Where does our money go? Part 1

If I had a glass of wine for everyone that asked me what their money for the ASR is going for, I could start my own vineyard! (And I would probably need rehab!)  There are many, many expenses to putting on the ASR every five years.  But I thought I would start with an expense that is actually an investment in the future.  Every year, (that’s EVERY YEAR people, not just the years of the ASR), we give out three scholarships to local graduates who are interested in pursuing a higher education.  One of the recipients this year is Regan Foos.  Now, let me tell you about this young lady.   She’s smart, talented, athletic, very funny, and oh yea…she made the K-State cheerleading team.  I am a little biased.  She was on my dance team for two years, co-captain for one.  And even though when you are giving her instructions, and she’s looking right at you…in the eye, then asks, “huh?”, believe me, she is still going places.  This one is a hard worker.  I mean, Dighton has NEVER had a co-ed cheerleading team, and yet, this girl drove herself around western Kansas learning how to stunt.  And tumble.  And be an all-around good person.  She deserves our help in pursuing her dreams.  This is our mission.  Help young people learn, grow, educate themselves.  Then they will in turn give back to their communities.  It’s a pretty good cycle.  Let’s keep it going.  Please register.  We would love to see you there!
