Send your cash or check to Amy or donate via this website.

WHO WAS DAN DILLON?

Many of us knew him as Big Guy. But not because of his stature. Everything he did in life was big. He never settled.

Dan had a full-time job but tirelessly devoted his free time to St. Peter Church (Huber Heights, Ohio). In the early years, it was the Festival Committee, Athletic Association, and his children's sports. Once in retirement, his devotion grew to Parish Council, Food Pantry, and Thursday Night BINGO Kitchen. And you'd ALWAYS find him barking kitchen orders at the Annual Fish Fry.

No request for Dan's time was ever too large. This scholarship fund is our way of continuing his stewardship.

ABOUT OUR SCHOLARSHIP

Each year, we'll award a scholarship (or two!) to a graduating eighth grader who is enrolling in Chaminade Julienne for ninth grade.

"Education is one of the most important ways by which the Church fulfills its commitment to the dignity of the person and the building of community." (To Teach as Jesus Did, 1972, #13)

Dan's Catholic identity meant the most to him. As a graduate of, what was then called, Chaminade High School (the all-boy school), Dad valued what a Catholic education taught him. He carried that ideology throughout his life. Our dad was an example of what it means to live the way Christ taught us. The ability for us to help a Catholic student with high school tuition would be a great honor to him. If you have any questions about this scholarship fund, or if there is anything we can do for you, please contact Janet Staderman at mstaderman@gmail.com

    We are hosting a Euchre tournament on Saturday, March 30. For our family and friends who cannot join us for the tournament, you can still join the fun! Purchase a reverse raffle ticket! Only 50 tickets will be sold. $15 each. Last 10 tickets are winners. Need not be present to win! All proceeds benefit the Dan Dillion Memorial Scholarship. Since 2015, we have raised more than $8,600 and award scholarships to 8 students who wanted to continue their Catholic education at CJ high school. This is not possible without your continued support! Love and Peace, The Dillon Girls

    Thank you to everyone who donated to Dad's scholarship in 2016. Your generosity and thoughtfulness mean so much to us. We look forward to May when we can present another Dan Dillon Scholarship to deserving 8th graders at St. Peter's Parish. Wishing you all love and peace in the new year. - the Dillon girls

It seems fitting that this Father's Day, we begin our second campaign for the Dan Dillon Memorial Scholarship. Although we miss Dad every day, we are so very humbled by the many blessings of our life.

Thank you for your consideration to donate in the memory of our father - someone who truly lived in Christ.
