Garrettsville – On November 27 the Garrettsville Eagles Club, F. O. E. 2705 presented a check for $2,000 to National Diabetic Research Center generated by the Club-sponsored golf outing. The donation was accepted by Matt Eisemann and Brian Mullins who ran the event.
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 fund for the research.
Eighteen foursomes entered the outing and the winning team consisting of Elmer Pesecky, Dino Manno, Jeff Pesecky and Dave Schlegelmilch, took home $500. The second place team which was one man short and consisted of Dave Apthorpe, Jeff Apthorpe and Harold Clark won $260.
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 included past trustee of the Women’s Auxiliary, Beth Oravetz, who contacted most of the local merchants and organizations for their donations.
The Club wishes to thank the local merchants and organizations for their generous support of this event.
