The Scholars

The Guild’s  Harold Brennan Memorial Scholarships are awarded annually to full-time students nominated by Guild members and selected by drawing. Funding comes from the proceeds of the annual Guild Follies, a variety show and musical review of the events and personalities that made news during the previous year. This show is produced and directed by Guild members and features a cast of Guild members, friends and our extended family.
