Madison County Retired Teachers met for their annual Christmas luncheon Monday Dec. 20 at The Rusty Rail in Canastota. Scholarship awards were presented by president Gwynne Bodle to two college juniors who are pursuing a career in teaching.
Amanda Yeoman of Oneida and Irene Wasnik of Munnsville are this year's recipients. Amanda is a student at Potsdam and Irene attends Geneseo.
Applicants must be college juniors who graduated from Madison County schools and plan to pursue a career in teaching.
This year Madison County Retired Teachers members are concentrating on local projects in Madison County. In the fall, school supplies were donated by several members. Contributions for The Food Cupboard in Hamilton were also collected and donated.
