  • Chamber's golf scramble was a success, thanks to community

       It was cold and windy, but this year’s golf scramble was a huge success. I am thankful for the many volunteers and businesses that made our annual fundraiser such a success. Thank you to the golfers who made it such a fun and exciting time.  

       We had 15 teams this year, with two of our teams tying for first and squaring off for a final tee off to win the first place cash prize.
