Westborough Civic Club donates six $1,000 scholarships

114

Westborough – The Westborough Civic Club granted six of the town’s graduating students $1,000 scholarships for their continuing education this fall. The 2020 recipients were Westborough High School graduates Romi Zebian, Alexander Badger, Andrew O’Keefe, Adam Dapolite and Patrick O’Neil, along with Richard Ryan who graduated from Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School. The recipients were selected by their school’s nominating committee on the basis of the student demonstrating a healthy interest in civic affairs, displaying good citizenship, and having a record of community service and fellowship in the community as demonstrated during their high school career.   

The Civic Club continues to be able to fund these scholarships through proceeds from their annual Tree, Wreath, and Roping Sale held each year daily between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year’s sale will begin Saturday, Nov. 28 at the Elsie A. Hastings Elementary School, 111 East Main St., Westborough. Fourteen hundred Balsam Fir trees and 400 wreaths from Nova Scotia make this fundraiser an annual favorite in the area. The club is making plans to provide a safe tree shopping experience for all; in line with town guidance this year, they will require masks and social distancing at all times.   

The Civic Club donates proceeds from the sale to many worthy causes in the community and is seeking additional members to join and help. More information on the Civic Club may be found on their Facebook page, at their websitee (www.westborocivicclub.org) or by email at info@westborocivicclub.com
