There were eight applicants, two females and six males. Districts I, II & IV were represented. They were from Nests 3, 8, 45(2), 118, 176, 827 & 946.

All applicants have been contacted regarding the decision of the Independent Committee and the Board.

Each of the applicants had been active within the Polish Falcons, at least on a Nest level.


Speaking of scholarships, each month Genevieve Borovicka of Nest 97 donates $10.00; Druhna has done this close to 320 times! Druhna does this in appreciation of her grandchildren receiving grants (quite a while ago).

A little bird told me that Druhna Genevieve will be celebrating her 100th Birthday on July 3! It would be so nice to send her a birthday card. If you are interested in doing so, please send to Genevieve Borovicka, C/O Polish Falcons, Nest 97, 200 6th Street, Windber, PA 15963.

Have a wonderful summer!
