Remembering Pat Knowles and the Scholarship Fund


As the Rehoboth Garden Club once again proudly announces the 2020 Scholarship for $1500.00, we acknowledge and lovingly remember Pat Knowles, a long-time Rehoboth resident. Pat initiated the scholarship in 2000 and became a devoted Chair of the Scholarship Committee until her recent passing. Horticulture and many of its related fields should be the applicants' course of study. The recipients, a substantial group, have expressed sincere appreciation for this assistance.

Pat's devotion, service, and longevity in the club are memorable. She served as President in 1974-1976. Out of respect and admiration, we have renamed the Scholarship Fund the Pat Knowles Scholarship Fund.

The proceeds of the Club's Annual Plant Sale are for this Fund. Pat was a faithful cashier for this event every year. Applications should be sent to Scholarship Fund, 24 Pine Grove Road, Rehoboth, MA and postmarked by August 15.
