Hi friends and family, This coming Thursday, February 1st will be the 20th Anniversary of the passing of our dad, James B. Ayres, Jr., who died suddenly of a heart attack in 2004. In the wake of his death, our mother, Cathy Ayres, started a scholarship at our alma mater, Randolph High School. The James B. Ayres Jr. Memorial Scholarship is presented yearly to a graduating senior who shows a passion for sports and music while personifying our dad's hard work, dedication, and determination throughout their high school tenure. It has truly been an honor for us to present this award each year and we are grateful for all of you who donated in lieu of flowers nearly 20 years ago to help keep his memory alive! Our mom has always aspired to expand the scholarship offering beyond RHS to a deserving student at Woodbury High School, where our parents first met. To help her achieve this dream, we hope you'll consider donating to help us reach our goal of $10,000, which will allow us to give two (2) scholarships of $500 each year at each school in perpetuity. Any contribution large or small will help, and we'll be sure to keep everyone posted on how much we raise over the next few months. Thank you in advance for your donations! -Cathy Ayres, Lauren Golebiewski, Caitlin Harmon, and Jeffrey Ayres

    The Ayres Family was central to ours as our children grew up. We were touched by kindnesses shown then, and are forever grateful.
