Bluebells & Eagles Walk for Friends of Riverbend Park (FORB)
The Philanthropy group held the Bluebells & Eagles Walk at Riverbend Park on a beautiful Wednesday morning on April 7th. We reached maximum-capacity turnout of 40 members and guests, and will provide FORB with a $3,000 check. A wonderful educational experience was had by all!
The eagles (Abe and Abby) and eaglets were clearly seen through the scopes, and some were lucky to view the parent eagles feeding the babies. The wildflower guides covered detailed information about the colorful and abundant plants native to the park.
At the end of the walk, Hugh Morrow made available native Virginia Bluebell plants at his wholesale price, and Philanthropy thanked each guest with a complimentary takeaway bag containing beautiful colored feather bookmarks and wildflower seeds for the home garden. The event received front page coverage in the Great Falls Connection.
GFFN supports the GFFN Scholarship Fund's Annual Tea.
On Sunday April 25th we gathered for our 2nd Annual Scholarship Fund Spring Tea at River Bend Country Club AND virtually from around the country!
We remembered and celebrated the life of Holly Kuga with beautiful remarks from daughter Katie Kuga Wenner. There was not a dry eye in the room. Holly's husband Bob was surrounded by old friends, new friends, and tremendous love and support. He also won the Tony Romo autographed Cowboys football which he had really wanted!! It was the perfect way to end the event.
