Scholarships light lives

Help fund scholarships for local students.

The Walnut Valley Women’s Club begins its annual Scholarship Tree of Lights fundraiser on Friday,  Oct. 31. The money will be used for scholarships for seniors at Walnut High School, Nogales High School in La Puente and Ron Hockwalt Academy in Walnut.

This year’s goal is $10,000. The club offers sponsorships of ornaments for $10 and lights for $5 that will decorate the Christmas tree at Fire Station 61, on the corner of Lemon and La Puente Roads.

Except for Thanksgiving weekend, sales take place on Fridays and Saturdays through Dec. 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays outside the Vons supermarket located on the corner of Lemon and La Puente Roads.

Ornaments are hand-made by club members. Donations may also be sent to Walnut Valley Women’s Club, P.O. Box 563, Walnut, CA 91788-0563.
