Hannibal Dollars for Scholars is hosting a pulled pork barbecue from noon to 3:30 p.m. (or until sold out) Saturday May 10 at the Hannibal American Legion on Rochester Street in Hannibal.  
The barbecue will include pulled pork with a kaiser roll, cole slaw, salt potatoes, baked beans and dessert.  Take-out dinners will be available.  Pre-sale tickets are available. Visit the chapter website at hannibal.dollarsforscholars.org and email one of the chapter contacts, or phone 564-5630.
 
All proceeds from the dinner will be used to provide scholarships to graduating seniors from Hannibal High School.  In 2013 the chapter provided thirteen scholarships of $500 each to Hannibal students.  
 
Hannibal Dollars for Scholars is a chapter of the national organization Dollars for Scholars. Dollars for Scholars, a program of Scholarship America, is a national umbrella program that includes over 1,100 locally-based, volunteer-driven chapters in nearly 3,500 communities across the United States. Dollars for Scholars partners with nearly 500 colleges, universities and technical schools to help maximize the impact of financial aid from our organization.  Many have matching fund agreements, allowing our locally raised dollars to be doubled for students attending these schools.
