Town Historic Commission To Host Sixth Reception For Commendation Awards
The Westfield Historic Preservation Commission will hold its sixth annual Commendations Awards reception on Thursday, June 11, at 8 p. m. in the Town Council Chambers of the Municipal Building on East Broad Street. There is no charge and the public is invited.
The awards will recognize property owners who have demonstrated established historic preservation standards when expanding, altering, restoring and maintaining their buildings and grounds. The buildings often retain their architectural integrity
from a significant period, a spokesman for the commission explained. The judging took place on May 2, and was led by architectural historian and artist, Harry Devlin of Mountainside. The other members of the Commendation Awards Committee, all from Westfield, were Todd Evans, Carolyn Klinger- Kueter, Elizabeth List, Florence Malcolm and Jane Stoner.
The purpose of the commission, the spokesman noted, is to protect the historical, cultural, architectural and social heritage of Westfield.
Woman's Club Reveals Scholarship Recipients
The Woman's Club of Westfield, a non- profit organization founded in 1895, announced the names of its annual scholarship recipients.
The recipients interview with the Education Committee and are selected on the basis of academic achievement, character, leadership, volunteerism, financial need and commitment to the community, said Education Chairwoman Helen Bryant.
This year's honorees include Jennifer Bianchi, Margaret Diggory, Lauren Gruman, Rebecca Hamilton, Corinne Liebrich, Tracy Lynn Masino, Laura Mottley, Benjamin Siegel and Rory Suggs.
Jennifer, the daughter of Angelo and Joyce Bianchi, will attend Union County College and Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center in Plainfield, and plans to be a radiologist.

All of these students are involved in school clubs, activities, sports, community volunteer services — including their places of worship, according to the Education Chairwoman.
Scholarship funds are made available through grants earmarked for education and from fund- raising efforts such as the "Trip of Your Choice" raffle, the annual Scholarship Luncheon and other private donations.
A reception and tea was held for scholars and their parents on May 11 at the clubhouse on South Euclid Avenue. The club announced it will continue the scholarship program despite its recent decision to sell the clubhouse.
A total of 67 four- year scholarships and 148 freshman grants have been awarded since the scholarship program was inaugurated in 1949.
