o two graduating high school students in each of the districts, naming them after distinguished former members: the Dr Park Horton Memorial at Blue Ridge; the Jack Masters Memorial at Mt. View; and this year we chose to make the Blue Ridge scholarships tributes to Agnes Jones and Bob Kerr. The Memorial Monument in New Milford Park was erected to honor all veterans and anyone who has served our country. The cost was $30,000 and all in the form of donations. The Club erected flagpoles in New Milford and Harford. It was also a major contributor to the New Milford swimming pool, and raised money for playground equipment. The Club participates in the Adopt-a-Highway program and is responsible for clearing two miles of Route 11 south of New Milford twice a year. In addition to the above, the Club makes regular donations to local charities including the United Way, the Women’s Resource Center, Bountiful Blessings Easter Dinner, and others. Over the years, it sponsored the Fresh Air Fund Friendly Town Program, which placed children from New York City with area families for two weeks each summer. To fund all these activities we host several fundraisers a year. The nature of these fundraisers has changed over time. For a number of years, the Club ran a pretzel booth at the Harford Fair and sponsored raffles, and sales of roses and Christmas trees. Current revenue sources are a golf tournament and chicken barbecue in the summer; a bake sale in the spring; a park sale flea market in the fall (using a trailer purchased from Kerr Trucking in 1994 to accumulate merchandise); and a weekly 50-50 for members.
