The Cavaliers Domino Club is holding its annual awards ceremony on Mother's Day to award two high school students with a $1,000 scholarship.

Club member Vernon Angel said they have provided scholarships for the last four years. This year the awards ceremony will be held from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday, May 12.

"The function is on Mother's day. It is a sit down meal. We have a live band and there is a program to go along with it," he said, adding that there also will be something given to mothers.

They are meeting this week to determine the recipients.

The club meets the second Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the Majestic Golf Club in the Crown Room. Angel said the golf club is where they hold of their functions.

The Cavaliers Domino Club has social events, an annual picnic at Bradenton Beach, as well as domino tournaments both local and away. Every Friday night Angel said they play bingo, which generates money for the scholarships.

The club currently has 75 members, both social, and domino players. They are always looking for more members.

"I enjoy the ambiance and the gathering. Everyone comes and enjoys the atmosphere. We welcome people and make them feel at home," Angel said.

He is a domino player who participates in the five, or six tournaments a year.

Angel said they also have in-house tournaments with all the players of the club, both men and women.

"Last year we had a four-way tournament and we came in second," Angel said.

The club is a nonprofit organization that enjoys supporting the Lehigh Acres community. He said from time to time they have guest speakers at their meetings, which includes both fire and police providing updates about what is taking place.

"Last month we had one of the ladies from the Senior Center to speak about diabetes," Angel said. "We participate in a lot of the local activities and try to give back all the time."

Those who would like to learn more about the Cavaliers Domino Club can call Angel at (239)691-7177.
