Second-annual Minden Rotary golf tournament a success

By Vivian Collings
Skies were blue and the sun was bright for Minden Rotary’s second-annual golf tournament on Monday, Sept. 19 at the Gull River Golf Club in Minden.
All proceeds raised from the tournament go towards local initiatives spearheaded by Minden Rotary.
“The tournament went so well. We’re still learning and growing, but we are so grateful for the support of all of the golfers and sponsors. We can’t thank the sponsors enough for their support of the event. It was a great day, a great event, and a great meal at the end of it all,” said Minden Rotary member Lynda Litwin.

Organizer of the event, John Kerr, was worried about the forecasted rain earlier, but was smiling while the sunshine beamed on the course.
“We’re so glad the weather cleared up for the tournament today and are very excited to be hosting it for the second time at the Gull River Golf Club,” Kerr said.
There was a silent auction, a putting contest, a 50/50 draw, prizes, and special holes along the course.
Close to 40 people participated, and an Italian buffet dinner at Mulligans, the restaurant on the golf course, concluded the day.
Minden Rotarians were pleased with the results of their second ever golf tournament and plan to hold many more.
