      NORPAC’s Board approved awarding two scholarships to a pair of NORPAC members. Each scholarship will be for $300 which will cover most of the cost of the workshop registration, one night’s
      room, and the gala dinner on Friday evening. Information regarding the scholarships will be e-mailed to NORPAC members shortly. Jerry Galland and Gene Sanders will be this year’s scholarship committee.
