13th Annual William G. Rose Golf Tournament

 

On Friday, July 19, 2019 – 124 golfers hit the links for the Annual William G. Rose Golf tournament.  The weather was cool but made it comfortable for all in attendance.

Prior to our prize presentations, a moment of silence was held to pay respect to the Hawk Air family who lost two of their crew just days before the tournament.  Hawk Air has been a supporter of our golf tournament from the beginning.

We wish to thank Nick from North of 17 for sponsoring the green fees this year and all of the sponsors who continue to contribute to this annual golf tournament.  We truly value your support.  To the golfers who travel from out of town each year to play in the tournament – thank you for coming!
