Wednesday, Nov. 9, is the first anniversary of the death of Tyler Wintle, who died at age 10 after a three-year battle with brain tumors.
Family and friends of the youngster, who was the only child of Scott and Sandy Wintle of Dexter, are establishing the Tyler R. Wintle Scholarship Fund. Proceeds from the fund will be given to a classmate of Tyler's, who will graduate with what would have been his Dexter Regional High School Class of 2012. Depending on how the fund progresses, however, the monies may be distributed before that time.
To begin fundraising for this scholarship, organizers are planning a bowling tournament Saturday, Nov. 12, at Newport Entertainment Center, and everyone is invited to participate. Pledge sheets are now available and can be obtained by calling Sandy Wintle at 924-5641. Prizes will be awarded and a pizza party follows the tournament.
Pastor Lois Field of Dexter United Methodist Church reports other events and fundraisers will be held periodically to benefit this scholarship. If you cannot participate in the tournament but would like to make a donation to the Wintle Scholarship, you may mail contributions to 195 Ripley Road, Dexter 04930.
