Reception honors 2013 scholarship recipients

On June 25th, 2013, the Willington Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars held their sixth annual reception at the Willington Library to celebrate the year's scholarship recipients. In 2013, WSF awarded $19,000 to 16 graduating seniors. Board members and award recipients were able to meet and mingle, while enjoying refreshments provided by board members. The evening was a joyful conclusion to a busy scholarship season.
