Garrettsville – In October the Garrettsville Eagles Club, F. O. E. 2705 sponsored the second annual golf outing to benefit the National Diabetic Research Center. The event was co-chaired by Matt Eisenman and Brian Mullins and generated $2,000 for the Center. In spite of the inclement weather, eleven teams participated in the scramble.
The Fraternal Order of the Eagles Grand Aerie, in partnership with the University of Iowa, established the Research Center at the University. The University is responsible for the facility while the Grand Aerie pledged the funds for the research.
When everyone finished, a tie existed between Team Mowren consisting of Wes Mowen, Mike Lawrence, Doug Berg and Eric Berg. Team Walls members were Glenn Walls, Daryl Guyette and two players who came in late and their names are unavailable.
The individual winners were Doug Berg for Long Drive on Hole #7; Eric Berg on Hole #15, while Daryl Guyette and Brian Mullins scored closest to the pin on Holes #5 and #10 respectively.
After the event, the golfers returned to the Eagles Club for a steak dinner to receive their prizes for individual achievements and numerous door prizes.
Needless to say, the event’s success depended on the work of the large number of volunteers that worked the course and contacted local merchants for their donations.
The Club wishes to thank the local merchants and organizations for their generous support of this event. Gold Sponsors were Kelly and Ferraro Att-at-Law, Eaton Corp and The Garrettsville Eagles Club. Hole Sponsors were Morco Construction, Penney Auto Body, Carlton Harley Davidson, Wingate Alloy Inc., Ellerhorst Insurance, 3-D Electric, and Davey Tree.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 8, 2012 for next year’s event.
