Harry and Marjorie Walbridge were dedicated members of Roscommon County. Harry moved to the Roscommon Area in 1973 and met Marge, they were married in 1977 in Rose City, Michigan. Harry and Marge gave back to their community with their time and generous support to the RCCF’s scholarship program. Harry was involved in the Masonic Lodge, The Roscommon Gerrish Higgins Lions Club, and the Rotary Club of Roscommon. He also served as the Gerrish Higgins School counselor from 1973 to 1987. Marge was an active member of the Zonta Club of Roscommon, and they were both devout members of the First Congregational Church.
Harry and Marge felt that continuing one’s education was very important. The RCCF wanted to recognize their generosity with the establishment of the Harry and Marjorie Walbridge Scholarship Fund. This fund is an open scholarship awarded to a graduating student with a grade point average of 2.25 or higher from Roscommon Area Public Schools, Houghton Lake Community Schools, or Charlton Heston Academy. This student must have plans to continue their education at an accredited college, university, community college or trade/technical/vocational school.
