Donations for the Friends of Barron Scholarship Program that sends Barron kids to high school in Mazatlan have begun to arrive in anticipation of the new school year which starts in August, 2011. Rita Pacheco, Dick & Kris McGuire, Dale & Lynda Lyster, Bob & Julie Wallace and John Watson have all agreed to fund the student they adopted in 2010 for the 2011-2012 school year. Other donations by Bob & Pat Tieken and Jerry & Geri Soukup will help to fund scholarships for additional students.
Friends of Barron has consulted a notario to evaluate the possibility of establishing FOB as a registered Mexican non-profit organization. In the coming weeks we hope to gain an understanding of the process and will keep you updated on our progress.
