In addition to distributing almost $100,000 in college scholarships Friday, Lake Highlands Women’s League members have been quietly fanning out in the community over the past couple of weeks, handing out another $98,000 in checks to projects, schools and community groups working to improve the lives of Lake Highlands families.
“A very successful LHWL home tour enabled us to grant in full all of our LH area school requests as well as many of the local non profit groups that bring much needed services to our neighborhood,” said LHWL Disbursements Chair Robin Moss Norcross. “Our committee was graciously welcomed by the Forest/Audelia Boxing Gym, a first time recipient of the LHWL Community Grant. We were all impressed by the facility and the neighborhood children they are serving.
“We are so very grateful to our neighbors who make this all possible by opening their homes for Holiday in the Highlands the first Friday of December. We are already hard at work planning, and we hope our faithful attendees will mark their calendars for this year’s tour, Friday, Dec. 7.”
