The 2010 annual appeal campaign is underway for the Washington Citizens' Scholarship Foundation.

Donations payable to the foundation are welcome and should be mailed to P.O. Box 243, Washington Depot, CT 06794.

The foundation recently elected the following officers: Steven Cornell as president, Ashley Goodale as vice president and Hugh Frater as treasurer.

"I am honored to become president of the foundation," said Mr. Cornell, "and to carry on the work of raising money annually for scholarships for our local students."

The nonprofit foundation, founded in 1964, awards scholarships annually for their college educations to Shepaug Valley High School seniors and graduates who have been residents of Washington, Washington Depot, Marble Dale and New Preston for a minimum of two years.
