On Sunday May 5, the annual Scholarship Awards Luncheon took place at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. The nearly forty people in attendance enjoyed the opportunity to interact with our scholarship winners, a breathtaking violin performance from our music scholarship winner and a sumptuous meal.
