Thank you to all who have donated to the Yellow Rose Scholarship. Our long-term goal is to reach $10,000, in order to build the Scholarship fund to the point at which it will become self-sufficient. This will service a yearly scholarship which can be offered in perpetuity, thus securing a long term legacy of Molly’s Kurvink's tremendous contributions to the Guelph Community Boating Club and the training and development of young sailors.

We appreciate your contributions.  Thank you.
