After the presentation, there are big smiles from both the representatives of EGS and EAHS.

Now is a good time to thank Lea and her committee for their devotion to making certain the Chester Bowser scholarship and grant funds go to deserving candidates. In today's economic environment, it is more important then ever for societies to support projects beneficial to the genealogical community.
