WILMINGTON — Generations of current and future members and guests of the Antique Power Club of Clinton County Inc. gathered for the annual dinner meeting Sunday evening at the Clinton County Fairgrounds Expo Center.
The group held a highly successful Corn Festival this year, and many local nonprofits will benefit as checks were presented to groups including Sugartree Ministries, Clinton County Homeless Shelter, Clinton County Foundation, Wilmington Bands, Clinton County Historical Society, 48th Ohio Civil War Reenactors, Boy Scout Troop 777, the Ho Ho Shop, and Main Street Wilmington.
The group recognized and thanked all those who work year-round to make the event so popular, including the Clinton County Convention & Visitors Bureau, which generously contributes to help make the event a success.
The Antique Power Club also has awarded, to date, a total of 88 scholarships totaling $62,500 to local students.
Each year the APC hopes to award five scholarships — one each to a graduate of East Clinton, Clinton-Massie, Wilmington and Blanchester High Schools, and the fifth scholarship to an eligible Antique Power Club member, member’s spouse, child or grandchild who has graduated from a high school outside of Clinton County.
Requirements for the scholarship also include:
1. Available to any second year, full-time college or technical school student (2019-2020).
2. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a four-year college or two-year technical school.
3. Applications must be postmarked no later than Dec. 31, 2019.
