Angel Society announces scholarships, other donations

FALLBROOK – Two Fallbrook High School students from the 2010 graduating class will be chosen to receive a scholarship in the amount of $3,000 each.

The scholarships will be awarded based on: a signed essay describing the applicant’s future plans, why they have chosen their course of study and how they plan to give back to their community; grade point average; school-related extracurricular activities; and financial need, plus high school transcript and two letters of recommendation from faculty members.

Application forms are available at the FHS Career Center and at http://www.fallbrookhs.org. Applications must be postmarked by April 9 and mailed directly to The Angel Society of Fallbrook, Attn: Philanthropy Committee, P.O. Box 1408, Fallbrook, CA 92088.

In other business, the Angel Society’s Board of Directors approved at its February meeting $11,800 in donations to worthy charities and community groups.

Topping the list of recipients with $3,000 is the Live Oak Park Coalition, which is seeking to raise money to build a new 80-seat outdoor amphitheater for such events as plays, musical performances and weddings. It will be located at the site of the current gazebo and plans have been approved by the county of San Diego.

Another $2,500 was donated to Arts in the Park, which will be held April 25 at Live Oak Park and is sponsored by Rally for Children and the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District. The event is free to the public.

A total of $2,000 each was awarded to Casa de Amparo, an Oceanside-based group that aims to treat and prevent child abuse and neglect; and Military Outreach Ministry or M.O.M, a Camp Pendleton-based program that supports young enlisted military families.

The Fallbrook Film Festival was awarded $1,000 towards its request for funds in support of the upcoming Third Annual Fallbrook Film Festival, April 9 through 11 at Ultra Star Theatre in Bonsall. This year, there will be a first annual Frank Capra Award presented by Capra’s grandson, Frank Capra, III, to the film which best represents the values of Capra’s films.

Two school programs also received $500 each: Live Oak Elementary School for its Fallbrook A Leer Reading 2010 that helps encourage reading at home; and San Onofre School, to help pay for uniforms for students competing in the annual Don Dornon Track Meet to be held at Fallbrook High School on May 1.

Finally, $300 was donated to the Bonsall/Fallbrook Little League in continued support of scholarships and operating expenses.
