Golf Tournament posts results

TThank you to Marion Post 584 and Doug Collins and his team of helpers for an excellent job hosting the annual Golf Tournament on Aug. 17 and 18. A total of 186 members participated; entries were up slightly from last year. The weather was perfect with the sun shining and the temperature not too hot.

Department 2nd Vice Commander Jim Campbell represented the Department of Ohio very well and opened the Tournament with an invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance. Sixth District 2nd Vice Commander Bart Arndt, Post 584 Commander Cledis Whitaker, along with Department Post Activities Director Brenda McGowan visited the Tournament. Everyone had fun and enjoyed the good food, the fantastic entertainment and the shuttle transportation to and from the Post from the hotels. The 2014 Tournament will be held in Marietta Aug. 16-17, with Marietta Post 64 as the host Post.

You must be 21 years or older and in good standing with membership.

All players are eligible for prizes.
