Strimbu Memorial Fund board cancels May BBQ

Scholarships will still be awarded

The Strimbu Memorial Fund Board of Directors has announced the cancellation of the 31st Annual Strimbu Memorial Fund Bar-b-Que that had been planned for May 6, due to the outbreak of COVID-19. However, the fund will still award leadership college scholarships to qualified high school seniors from local school districts as it has done at previous bar-b-ques. The next bar-b-que will now be May 5, 2021. Since its inception in 1990, the SMF has provided $3.6 million in scholarships and has supported a variety of economic development and charitable causes.
