They are holding up the Walt and Betty Whitehurst Individual Volunteer Scholarship Fund brochure presented by Jeanie Blankenbaker. Contributions to the Scholarship Fund (Advance Special # 982465) will help some individual volunteers finance their mission service. Help is especially needed for volunteers from outside the United States.
