Months of planning by the Golf Committee resulted in another successful event. The hot, humid weather could not dampen the enthusiasm of the 80 golfers who enjoyed competing for team awards and individual prizes in the closest to the pin, longest drive, and hole in one contests. The dinner banquet, which featured the raffle drawings of 60 donated prizes, was attended by 105 people who were treated to a delicious meal while enjoying the music of a Greek DJ.
