A true friend is hard to find and every get-together fosters greater unity.
Coming up soon....
The scholarship banquet is Thursday May 17th this year. One major function of the BAJ’s has been the annual awarding of Jerry Molosky scholarships. The pancake breakfast fund raiser is held each October to raise money for Bloomington Jefferson and Kennedy high school seniors that participate in athletics. A committee selects the top qualified seniors from the many applicants submitted. A $1500 scholarship award, along with a plaque, is given to each winner from the funds made at the pancake breakfast. We typically award around 8 to 10 scholarships annually. Students and their parents are invited to attend a sit-down banquet in their honor at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Bloomington.
In the last 29 years, we have given well over $200,000 to the students to help defray the cost of higher education. A letter of acceptance by the school of their choice must be sent to our chairman before the money is awarded.
Members of the present scholarship committee are:
Chairman Bob Swanson, Jerry Narragon, Roger Koland, John Crary, Steve Alpert, Gerry VandeGarde and the 2 high school activity directors: Matt Hanson and Chad Nyberg.
