The Rochester Women’s Club would like to congratulate our 2018 scholarship winners, Madeline Scheub, Erin Taylor, and Courtney Vance. We are proud of your accomplishments.
This year the Rochester Women’s Club is adding a scholarship for students who are pursuing a career in nursing. This scholarship is funded in part by the late George Church. He donated a substantial amount of money to start the “Snookie Church” Memorial Scholarship for Nurses in honor of his wife Katherine Church. Katherine Hartley Church was well know for her service as an Army nurse and more known for her dedication to the town of Acushnet as a school and visiting nurse. Katherine, known as “Snookie” to most, was also a president of the Rochester Women’s Club for many years.
The Snookie Church Memorial Scholarship for Nurses and the Raymond T. Hartley Scholarship applications will be available at the guidance office of Old Rochester Regional High School, Old Colony Vocational High School, Bristol County Agricultural School, and Bishop Stang High School. Please contact us for an application if you are a high school graduating senior living in Rochester if you attend a school not listed above. Contact Marsha at 508-322-0998. There will be one “Snookie” scholarship and two Raymond T. Hartley Scholarships awarded.
The Women’s Club Scholarships are $1,000.00. The money for these scholarships are dispersed to the recipients after the club receives transcripts from their first semester.
The Rochester Women’s Club meets the first Wednesday of the month at 12:00 pm. We always have a wonderful luncheon provided by a different member each month. We are located at 37 Marion Road in Rochester. This Women’s Club is open all women. You need not be a Rochester resident to join. We are currently planning to refurbish our meeting area. It will be available to rent for small gatherings, parties, showers, small weddings, and receptions. The Club House is a lovely venue and rent is very reasonable. For more information on rentals or meetings, contact Marsha at 508 322 0998.
