Golf tournament Putts and Drives!

Our annual Scholarship funding (STAR student) golf tournament is a wrap and was a great succes thanks to the support of: 1. YOU, 2. The volunteer army it takes to coordinate and pull off the event. And, 3. YOU, coming back next year with your team and company signs! Trust me, these 'kids' are worth it.

All of the participants are winners, the top performances of the day were reported as follows:
First Flight Low Net: Biddle Express
