Herb Guild scholarship luncheon is waiting-list only

The Herb Guild's 31st annual scholarship luncheon will be held on Aug. 5 at Avon Oaks Country Club. The Herb Guild will utilize the entire building with events, sales and tastings, as well as lunch. Every year the Herb Guild, which meets at Porter Library, gives away two scholarships to students pursuing college degrees in the natural sciences or the culinary arts.

This year’s winners are Natasha Daniels from Twinsburg and Megan Urig from Elyria. Natasha will be attending Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Megan will be attending OSU’s Agricultural Technical Institute in Wooster. Both girls will receive their scholarship money at the August luncheon.

The events scheduled for the day are a boutique with items for sale; a bakery with homemade baked goods, jams and jellies; a silent auction; and a basket raffle. Breadsmith, a Lakewood-based bread bakery, will be selling bread at the luncheon. With the exception of Breadsmith, all items are donated or made by the Herb Guild members. All proceeds from the luncheon will go toward next year’s scholarship.

There is currently a waiting list for the scholarship luncheon. Tickets went fast at $35 each. For more information you should call Kathie Conrad at 215-872-9725.
