7-day cruise will boost Milano scholarship fund

MILANO—A seven-Day cruise is being planned for Feb. 6-13, 2011 as a fund-raiser for the Milano Alumni Scholarship Fund.

The cruise line, Carnival, will give $70 per room to the scholarship fund. Rates start at $500 for an inside room.

A meeting about the cruise is being planned. All interested travelers are encouraged to attend. For the time and place call Carolyn Hafley, 455-2473, or Wilson Kyle, 979-279-5668.

“If you have ever considered taking a cruise, take this one,” Hafley said. “You will have fun and you will be part of the fund-raiser to help one of our young people. It truly is a ‘feel good thing’ knowing you have helped someone get their start in life.”

“The Milano exes’ scholarship fund is planning to give mini scholarships again for this fall,” Hafley continued. “The amount given will depend on the number of applicants but no Milano graduate who has at least one year of school will be turned down.”
