March 13th Membership Luncheon - Silent Auction



Doris Harrison and Carol Whyms enjoy time to chat at January's FAREA Luncheon. These lovely ladies along with Al & Judi Messner are on the March Silent Auction Committee. Members donate wonderful items and treats which are auctioned to raise funds for Scholarships which will be awarded this Spring. Students in pursuit of a degree in education, either entering college or continuing their studies, are eligible to apply for these scholarships. If you know of anyone who wants to be a teacher, be sure to make them aware of this opportunity. School Guidance Counselors have the application forms.

Think Spring Presentation by Chad Muche


Chad Muche of Stuart's Landscaping gave his "Think Spring" presentation at the January 9th General Membership Luncheon. Excellent tips were given on creating and maintaining a "Butterfly Garden". Monarch Butterflies along with many insects are in urgent need of assistance in procreation as pesticides and loss of habitat have caused a drastic decline in their population.
