Air Miles Needed for BK Scholarship Recipients

 

Dear Friends,
 

The Scholarship Program is an important way that we increase the diversity of our voices at our Retreat.  Several recipients still need air mile donations!  Even if you are unable to come October 10-13, it would be a most gracious gesture if you could donate miles should you be amply endowed!
 

Please contact Brenda at your earliest convenience at b_r_price@bellsouth.net and she will connect you with a grateful author.

We thank you in advance for your generosity,
