A thank you and a call for participation
« on: November 18, 2007, 02:32:53 pm »
Welcome to this new board, the "Melinda Doolittle Music Scholarship" board!

At the beginning of September, when our activities as Melinda's BackupsTM were just about to start, Jen/(Jenprays), Nicole/(Angel4Peace), and Rene/(Rene) launched the wonderful idea of establishing a music scholarship in honor of Melinda at Belmont University. We would like to thank their long-sightedness, without which we will have never embarked in such a wonderful and ambitious project.

The Committee that has so far worked on this project includes: Cristina/(Chris-play), Irma/(igabby), Maria/(Ghopper), Nicole/(Angel4Peace), Rene/(Rene), Teresa/(Shining), and Vicki/(Vickster).
Other Bbackups have already given their availability to join, among them Barbz019, Elcondado/(Cathy), Jen/(Jenprays), Holly/(Luvpway), Mary Ann/(Melrocks), Melissa/(#1Houstonfan).

But to make the Scholarship a success we need the help of all Melinda's Backups! We need your ideas and contribution. So please, stay tuned. We will soon post more details open to discussion and we expect the participation of the group as a whole!

Melinda's Backups Rock!  Rock On sign
