The February 28 Vesper Service offering will be sent to the Eastern Star Training Award for Religious Leadership (ESTARL) Scholarship Fund wklch provides financial as- sistance to men and women enter- ing the ministry. This program was initiated by the Genera] Grand Chapter of the Order of the East- ern Star in 1952. Eastern Star Chapters all over the world are asked to participate in this pro- gram and the Grand Chapters of the individual states and territo- ries handle their own funds and make the awards. The scholar- ships are based on a financial need rather than scholastic standing. The scholarships are given with the understanding that if the stu- dent obtains his or her degree and enters into full time religious work, the money advanced is a perma- nent gift from the Wyoming Order of the Eastern Star, but if for some reason they do not enter into reli- gious work, the money advanced for their education must be repald withoutinterest. In 1998 the Grand Chapter of Wyoming awarded six scholarships of $1,500.00 each. * Commercial Residential .Carpet & Ceramic ,Wood Pergoo ShawMark carpets Available F-~c l ua tve ly At ~wntown $ Come See The Difference At Powder River Manufactured Homes An Affordable Way to Raise Your Fomllyll Come and Browse Upgraded Insulation in Every Home.
