Dear Editor,

Due to family illness the Annual Antwan Moore Memorial Scholarship Fundraiser will not be held this year. We would like to thank all the local businesses that have supported us over the past years. In addition, we send out a big thank you to our friends and family for their continuous support. Antwan began his career as a firefighter for the California Department of Forestry. In 1997, he became a fireman for the City of Modesto. He was also a proud member of the Hazardous Material Response Team. Antwan will always be remembered for his unselfish commitment for saving lives. Even in death, he continues to save lives with his ultimate gift of organ donation. We will continue to offer one scholarship to an Oakdale High School graduate who desires to enter the Medical or Fire Science field. In addition, an annual scholarship will be offered to a Modesto Junior College student majoring in Fire Science. Donations can be made to: OJUSD; Attention: Debbie Potter, 168 S. Third Ave., Oakdale, CA 95361 or Modesto Junior College; Attention: Melissa Clark, Scholarship Office; 435 College Ave., Modesto, CA 95350-5808. Please remember to write Antwan Moore Scholarship in the memo section of your check. All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you,

Bill (Wild Bill’s BBQ)

and Dorothy Moore
