This fund was established in December 2007, in honor of Ed and Shirley Vruwink. They led Snyder 4-H Club for more than 50 years. The Snyder 4-H Clubhouse is the little white schoolhouse north of Wisconsin Rapids. Snyders 4-H food stand at the Central Wisconsin State Fair has been a favorite of fairgoers for years. Through this endeavor, Snyder 4-H has helped hundreds of youth obtain leadership, organizational and real life skills by working in the food stand and also participating in many 4-H projects, events and trips. In honor of Ed and Shirley, and due to the hard work of hundreds of Snyder 4-Hers and the sale of hundreds of apple pies, Snyder 4-H Club is able to award this scholarship to deserving young adults in Wood County. Ed passed away August 13,2008. He is greatly missed.
