Cruisin' On Main Scholarship reaches its goal of achieving a self-perpetuating scholarship for Manchester students!

In 2013 the Cruisin' on Main Street Committee established a Cruisin' on Main Scholarship through the Manchester Scholarship Foundation. The scholarship honored John "Randy" Thrall, a longtime committee member and friend to all who passed away. Thanks to all the Friends and VIP's of Cruisin - this scholarship is now self-perpetuating. Each year a Manchester student is furthering his or her education thanks to this scholarship. THANK YOU!

We are pleased to announce that the VIP program will continue!

The NEW chosen beneficiary is MARC Inc. of Manchester!
