Belmond Scholarship Foundation II has just until Feb. 28 to raise $2,900 to match a pledge from the Richard O. Jacobson Foundation.

  “The Jacobson Foundation pledged $29,390 last March toward B-K scholarships if we could match that amount,” said Scholarship Treasurer Dale Arends. “In past years we have always raised enough money locally to meet or exceed the matching fund goal. We hope that will be true this year, too. But the deadline is approaching fast.”

  Persons who would like to help meet the goal should write a check to B-K Scholarship Foundation II and mail it to PO Box 2, Belmond, IA 50421.
