Many thanks to all those who attended the Hall Education Fundâ€™s Square Dance and Silent Auction on Saturday, Mar 29th at the Presbyterian Church. It appeared that a good time was had by all who attended. It provided a time to visit and meet people from the other churches who are partners with First Reformed Church in supporting the Hall Fund. In addition, over $2,000 was raised to enrich our scholarship fund.
On May 27th, the Hall Education Fund will conduct the annual interviews of the young people who have applied to us for financial help. This year there are eleven candidates from three high schools: New Brunswick High School, Health, Science and Technology High School and Piscataway Vo-Tech. All of the students are New Brunswick residents. It is always a sobering, and ultimately uplifting, experience to listen to their stories.
Heartfelt thanks to those of you who support this important work.
