The Oswego Association of Business and Professional Women recently celebrated its 25th anniversary at Vona’s Restaurant in Oswego.
As part of the festivities, the group awarded a scholarship check to Michaela Moran, a graduating Oswego High School senior. Moran plans to attend SUNY Oswego for medical technology.
The Oswego Association of Business and Professional Women membership includes working women and retirees.
The group supports local groups and organizations, contributes to Human Concerns Food Pantry and focuses on a Thanksgiving cash/food drive. Because of the tremendous need for the food pantry, a spring cash collection has also been newly implemented.
The association also adopts needy families at Christmas and provides gifts and food.
Each year, the group awards a scholarship to a local female graduate of Oswego High School or Mexico High School.
Meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month at Vona’s at 6 p.m. with the exception of July and August. Also the December meeting is held the second Tuesday to accommodate the holiday offerings.
The association is encouraging new members to join now. If interested in joining this group of women, call Pat Cole, membership committee, at 342-2455.
