University Friends Circle: Scholarship/Awards Reception

April 10, 2014

University Friends Circle (UFC) will meet for a reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on May 5 at the University House. Join us for one of the highlights of the year. 

Chancellor Dorothy Leland will present the UFC Community Volunteer Leadership Scholarship and UFC Community Organization Service Award. You will meet, hear from and have a chance to talk with the winners. Our hardworking and energetic Scholarship Committee, under the leadership of Ann Andersen and Carolene Drury, interviewed more than 12 UC Merced student volunteers and organizations. We will also enjoy hearty appetizers and refreshments in the lovely University House garden.

The annual business meeting will be short, primarily to elect the board for next year.

The cost is $20 for members and $25 for guests. For information on joining the UFC or to RSVP, visit friendscircle.ucmerced.edu. The reservation deadline is noon on April 30.

The UFC's mission is to inspire and maintain strong relationships between the UC Merced community and the communities of the San Joaquin Valley through activities that promote social and intellectual interaction, programs of service and fundraising initiatives that support UC Merced scholarships.
