  • Our speaker next week is Toniya Singh, who will speak on diversity.
Adam Manning announced this is our 3rd Golf Outing. Our biggest fundraiser is Pancake Breakfast but during COVID we had to shut down. As we started coming out of the pandemic, we were searching for another fundraiser, and Harvey Smith thought of a Golf Outing.
Adam gave thanks to committee members, many of the same people serve on both pancake and golf committees. Brad Huffman gave thanks to Adam for their leadership and dedication. The entire club is thankful for them!
Brad noted we started offering a combo sponsorship last year that gives a discount to sponsor both Golf and Pancake. Many have taken advantage of this discount.
  • The forecast for the outing is temperatures in the 70s and sunny and 70 golfers are signed up this year.
  • Prizes, Raffle, 50/50 Raffle, breakfast, lunch and good fun playing golf.
