Monday, October 6, 2014 was the date of our Easton Lion’s Club annual golf tournament held again this year at the Easton Country Club. We had an excellent turnout of 52 golfers (13 foursomes) who were treated to a day of perfect fall golfing weather. In addition to the golfers, we were able to find 27 generous hole sponsors who paid $150 each for sign recognition at various golf tee boxes. The tournament also included a putting contest (won by our own Brian Sloane) between the 9th and 10th holes.
A great day of golf was topped off by a wonderful meal afterwards in one of the Easton Country Club’s function rooms. This was followed by Jim Howarth awarding the prizes for the lowest team score, longest drives (both men and women), and closest to pin (both men and women). Jim then took the floor to read off the winning ticket numbers for the prize raffle.
When the day was over, and all was said and done, the Easton Lions Club netted a total of a little over $7600 profit!
I would like to first of all thank the immediate tournament staff that volunteered to serve in the following positions: Kevin McIntyre – Advertising, Beth Bredesen – Banking & Finance, Nancy Sullivan – Secretary, Jim Howarth – Golf Day Operations, and Frank Smith and David “Doc” Mudd – Prizes & Sponsorships. In addition, I want to recognize and thank the following Lions who also volunteered their time to make this tournament a huge success (in no particular order): Stan Borgeson, Matt Cioffi, Marilyn Cyr, Jeannie Ebert, Brian Edlund, Tia Famularo, Dennis Gutman, Marilyn Henderson, Kathy Humphrey, Judy Jackson, Veronica Lamb, Ken Love, Kevin Martin, Bill Palmer, Courtney Pupkin, Joyce Tardito, Kevin Williams, Dave Zaff, Sally Zussman, Rich Bommhardt, Tony Cabral, Nancy Arns, Sandra Bemis, John Mallers, Lynn Cleveland, Harry Lynd, Jon Morgan, and Cindy Rodham-Tuck. I apologize if I missed anyone.
In conclusion, and in all sincerity, thank you for letting me have the opportunity to run this tournament and work with such a wonderful group of people.
