On Thursday, July 14 we had our 6th annual Golf Tournament at Raven Crest Golf Course. Although the weather was looking grim throughout the week, we were blessed with warmth, and sunny clear skies. As an added bonus we also had tons of mosquitos! What a relief! And of course, we raised money for our youth programs, including Route 56.
Probably my favorite part of the day is watching new golfers break in their clubs. It takes a lot of guts to play golf in a tournament, but we have structured the day so that whether you are a seasoned pro or a newbie you can have a blast. This year Darryl and Sharon Fraess, the directors of Birch Bay Ranch played very well, considering they are fairly new to the game. I saw Sharon hit a HUGE drive…and I know it only takes one in every game to keep you coming back for more.
If you missed the tournament this year, make sure to join us next year. It’s a great chance to meet some people you haven’t before, get some fresh air and raise money for a good cause. Come on, it’s FORE the kids!
