By The Way...
The dream of
college is all too often cut short because of financial strain. While many
children rely on their ability to play sports or their academic grades to
catch a break on tuition, thousands of children across the country will
have a chance to use another talent to get them to college … the ability
to make an awesome soft serve yogurt sundae.
TCBY’s “Sundae College” contest, all kids ages 5 to 15 will have
a chance to create their very own yogurt sundae – by choosing a flavor
of yogurt, toppings and most importantly, naming it. Entry forms,
information and drop-boxes will be at all TCBY locations through May 15.
From August 1 to September 30, the winning “Sundae College” entry will
be sold in all 1,500 TCBY locations with a percentage of the product’s
profits going toward the winning child’s college education. TCBY will
also donate $5,000 into the winner’s “scholarship fund.” The winner
will be announced in mid-July and the new sundae treat along with the
child’s name and hometown will be featured on the menu.

Marrow Donor Program Registry is looking for new members to help save
lives. Each year, more than 30,000 children and adults are diagnosed with
leukemia or other diseases for which a stem-cell transplant may be the
only chance for a cure. Only 30 percent of these people will find matching
donors within their families. The others will look to the National Marrow
Donor Program Registry for a potential life-saving match. At any given
time, 3,000 patients are searching the donor registry for a possibly
life-saving stem-cell donor. Ethnic minorities are strongly encouraged to
register because they are under-represented and matching donors are
usually found among the same ethnic group. For more information on registering,
call 1-800-MARROW-2 or visit www.marrow.org.

Hawaii State Public Library System would like your help in imagining what
our public libraries will be like in the year 2020. Do you envision
changes in your library needs? Let your imagination soar and help us
create the libraries of the future. We invite you to take part in
designing and planning for public library services in the years ahead. The
Hawaii State Public Library System will be conducting the 2020 Vision:
Libraries of the Future campaign. The public is asked to consider the
following: What will public libraries look like? Will they be filled with
books and computers, or will there be a completely different way of
obtaining information? Will the books we love still be accessible? Will
there be neighborhood libraries for your needs? Submissions will be
accepted through May 31 via entry forms available at all public libraries,
or online at www.librarieshawaii.org/2020vision.htm.
