VIENNA, WV 26105 THE TOM AND MARTHA BUTTERFIELD MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP AT OHIO VALLEY UNIVERSITY. No one on earth ever loved young people more than our parents. Not only did they care well for their own household, they cared for, fed, and spiritually nourished thousands of others through their long lives together.

Now, even in death, they continue to be central in the memories of countless people. With the passing of our mother early this Spring, life changed for our family. Dad has been gone since 1994 and we miss him so much, too.

In keeping with their attitude of love for truth and the well-being of youngsters, we have established this memorial scholarship to be used in assisting young people to further their education in a Christ-centered academic environment.

We invite you to participate with us in this huge opportunity to touch the lives of many people for years and years to come.

Please make a generous and regular donation to the above scholarship. Make checks payable to Ohio Valley University and note on the check that it is for the Butterfield Scholarship Fund. Mail your contribution to: Ohio Valley University, 1 Campus View Drive, Vienna, WV 26105-8000. Tom D. Butterfield, for our family.

GRAFTON, WV 26354 We just finished a tremendous meeting with brother Will Montgomery here at Wilson Ridge. There is no way to measure how much of a blessing brother Will was for us!

The Youth Sing is scheduled for June 2nd at the Pumpkin Center Church of Christ with brother James Cook as the speaker. The sing is scheduled to begin at 6 pm. This has always been such a wonderful way for all of us to start off our summer activities for the youth.

I'm currently trying to get the TNTs (Thursday Nights Together) for this summer scheduled. I have several calls out and I'm waiting to hear back from the various congregations that normally host these activities. We hope to have the announcements in the mail as soon as possible with the TNTs starting on June 14th. I hope to have a list of the TNTs available to pass out at the youth sing on Saturday.

We have moved the annual trip to Kennywood Park this year. It is scheduled for the first Monday in July (July 2nd). We made this change to try and avoid conflicting with the area Vacation Bible Schools and camp weeks. I hope this change in schedule will free more up to be able to participate.

Kennywood's July group ticket price is $21. This include admission to the park and rides for the day. We will have a devotional at the opening of the day's festivities and then everyone will have the day to enjoy the park and fellowship one with another.

Those wanting to participate are asked to pick one person from the group to organize your group. I ask that each group organizer contact me at: or (304) 694-2354 by June 29th to let me know you have a group that plans to participate.

All groups are requested to meet at the Exxon Station located about 1 mile North of the I-68 interchange on 119 in Morgantown by 9:30 am the day of the trip. Final counts by the various groups can be given then with all ticket fees being collected at that time. We will be passing out the tickets at the gate of Kennywood Park.
