Ruby's Pantry to award $1,000 scholarship to a college-bound Rhinelander High School senior
RHINELANDER - Rhinelander high school seniors can now apply for one more scholarship to continue their studies thanks to Ruby's Pantry.

At the end of 2016, Ruby's Pantry gave $1,000 to the Rhinelander Area Scholarship Foundation to create the Rhinelander Ruby's Pantry Scholarship.


"My son was a recipient of a scholarship way back when in the '90s, and so I know how much that has benefited him," said Ruby's Pantry Treasurer Mary Langlois. "So I think it's a really good foundation and helps many, many students."

For 25 years, the scholarship foundation has given many students scholarships to continue their education after high school.

The Ruby's Pantry scholarship will be awarded to a student who volunteers at the pantry or a student who has a family member who volunteers there.

"Typically we get people and individuals who donate, but having another non-profit recognize how important we are in the community and us back to them, it's just huge to see these groups working together," said Kathy Richards-Bess, the Rhinelander Area Scholarship Foundation president.

The scholarship will be awarded in May of this year.

"Master Gardeners of the North" wants to teach you how.

Tonight's class will be on foraging for edibles in the Northwoods.

Even though edibles can be easy to find, volunteer Tom Jerow says you should leave enough behind for wildlife and next year's crop.

" You should really link up with a mentor, someone who knows what they're doing. Someone who can identify the food that you're looking for," says Jerow.

You can find nuts, grapes, and sumac pretty easily this time of year.

The Master Gardeners meet tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the Oneida County Senior Center.
