Do you remember high school chemistry class and how fun it was using the Bunsen burner? Today is all about that great invention. March 31st annually celebrates National Bunsen Burner Day honoring the birthday of German chemist Robert Wilhelm Eberhard von Bunsen. Yeah, I know.
From the Scholarship Committee :
On behalf of the scholarship fund committee, THANK YOU to everyone who came out last weekend to taste yummy soups and support a great cause. We had six cooks enter seven soups, and many of you came out to taste.
Congratulations to Raynel Ward for winning first place for her French onion soup entry. Neeltje Burns took home second for her baked potato soup. Cindy Walbe won best presentation, and Danny Otto defended his People’s Choice with his Turtle Soup. CONGRATS!
I have to also personally thank Carolyn Einkauf and Arline Laughter. They helped with the set up and greeting all of you at the door. And to everyone who helped clean up afterwards (Helle Brown, I think you had a group there folding tables and chairs), THANK YOU! Every time we have an event in our city I am overwhelmed and awed by the outpouring of support. See pictures in this month’s Islander (and thank you Helle for being our photographer!).
Finally, a special thank you to Toni Randall. She is our Justice of the Peace in Pct. 7, and she was our judge. She had a great time and enjoyed meeting many of you!
After all was said and done, I think we raised about $350. That is amazing!
Scholarship applications are now available. I am hopeful it will be posted soon on the Clear Lake Shores Civic Club website, or if you have a senior in high school, please encourage them to apply.
Thank you again!

Before all you fun loving volunteers jump on this and tell the rest of us what a waste of time and energy and effort and money and everything else you don't contribute to let me just say, save it. If you didn't have fun that's on you. It's for a good cause. A lot like Yachty Gras. The short version is the Scouts went to bed with $2,500 dollars they didn't have when they woke up and it didn't cost them a nickel. For all your wasted time, how much time did you put in again? That's unfortunate. You lost respect for the Civic Club over this? Really? Or you just pissed at me? come on, it's OK, you know you want to say it. Well it's your turn Thursday, I'll be stepping down and all you friends and neighbors who " don't care for those calling the shots" can step up and put your spin on things. Come on it'll be fun.
Looks like a short meeting tomorrow.
