Korean War Veterans will host rose of Sharon drive

Members of the Hancock County Korean War Veterans Chapter 172 will conduct their annual Rose of Sharon Scholarship fund drive from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Walmart, 1161 Trenton Ave.

All net proceeds will be used for first-year college student scholarships for eligible grandchildren of chapter members. Each donor will receive a rose of Sharon, the national flower of South Korea. Children will receive a miniature American flag.

The fund drive began in 2002 and has provided 74 scholarships totaling $37,000. This is the chapter’s only fund drive for the year.

For membership or additional information, call Larry Monday at 419-387-7532.
