The Alexander Family $2,000 Scholarship Funding

Alexander Family Scholarship Funding

The Alexander Family has made a two year commitment to fund Sociedad Hispana Doylestown high school senior scholarships as outlined below:

In the 2018-2019 school year a $1,000 (Goya level) scholarship in the name of Peter's wife Margaret (Peggy) Alexander will be funded and in the school year 2019-2020 a second $1,000 (Goya) scholarship will be extended in the name of Corinne Alexander.  Both Peggy and daughter Corinne passed away prematurely several years ago.

The Alexander's are long term friends of Jane and Terry Hull having lived concurrently for several years in Tokyo. Sociedad Hispana Doylestown appreciates Peter and son Mark funding these two  memorial scholarships.

El Laberinto de los Espíritus- Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Fascinante que Ruiz Zafón no permite el uso de los cuatro novelas de la serie en Hollywood.  Sabe porque?  El nos explica en la entrevista abajo.  Será una selección de nuestro club de libros en el año venidero.

Gratz Gallery http://www.gratzgallery.com
Gallery website:
"We are a fine art gallery and art conservation studio located in the seat of historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania, that specializes in American artists. Our exhibitions and collections focus on the Pennsylvania Impressionists, the Philadelphia Ten, and painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. The conservation studio staff holds close to 40 years of experience in art restoration. Our clients include museums, universities, churches, historical societies, and private collectors."

For those  who have not visited The Gratz Gallery, it is located in a beautiful rural location off Rte 611 near Haring Brothers butcher outlet.  It is well worth a visit to the Silo Hill Road gallery.  Check website for hours.

Fulbright  Scholarship Awards- For those of us who lived during the Viet Nam War, William Fulbright was well known as senator actively opposed to The US involvement.  Importantly, today he is better known for other things.
