News and Announcements
Time is growing short for purchasing tickets to the Banquet of Nov 16, 2021. We must have an accurate head count for meals by Nov 1 therefore all ticket sales will close October 31. NO tickets will be sold at the door this year. Anne will be at the park until 9:15pm each evening there are games, and remaining morning games if you wish to purchase.
Golf Tournament is on schedule for Thurs Nov 11 and Tom Cameron will accept registrations up until about the day before for head counts for teams however, will also accept same day walk ups if need.
ALSO, believe with original announcements for the two events, it was left off about please bring a new unwrapped present for donation to the local Christmas present fund. Let’s try to outdo ourselves this year…COVID issues are still affecting lots of families and abilities. Thank you so very much for your generosity.
Due to upcoming events of Golf and Banquet Nov 11 and 16th, and posting the player profiles, we’ve waited to post in order to keep these two events “on top” for reference. Postings will resume later next week.
