The 15th annual Pine Meadow Charity Golf Tournament took place on June 25th at Hunter's Creek Golf Course on Hwy. 506 near Cloyne. As in previous years, this year's tournament was generously sponsored by numerous businesses and community members, raising over $17,000. These funds are used for a variety of items at Pine Meadow, which cannot be included in their regular budget and which enhance the lives of the residents at the nursing home.

Funds raised this year will be used to subsidize the monthly excursions planned for the residents and to purchase an Arjo Maxilift, patio furniture and concrete pathways for the new courtyard, as well as raised garden beds and curtains and tablecloths for the activity room.

This year, 69 golfers participated in the tournament on a beautiful sunny day at Hunter's Creek Golf Course. Raffle prizes included a beautiful quilt made by Treadle Quilters and valued at $1100, which was won by David Thain of Napanee and a Smoker valued at $1000 donated by Lookout Home Hardware, which was won by Austin Sharp of Aurora. There was also a 50/50 draw with a prize of $165, won by Greg Wise, who donated $50 back to the

fund. The microwave, donated by Smitty's Appliances, was the prize for the chipping contest and was won by Cory Andrews. Hunter's Creek donated a prize of 10 golf games, valued at $250, which was won by Miller Hodgins.

The members of the first place team at the tournament (pictured) were Paul Andrews, Hailey Andrews, Marty Lessard and Matt Lessard. The second place team included Randy Andrews, Mike Sagriff, Derek Maschke and Cole Maschke. Both teams donated their winnings back to the Pine Meadow Special Needs Fund.

The men's closest to the pin was won by Jamie Tryon and the women's closest to the pin was won by Donna Peters . The men's longest drive was won by Greg Wise and the women's longest drive was won by Sue Tobia.

The raffle sales brought in over $6000 and we are especially grateful to the many ticket sellers, who gave of their time and enthusiasm. Special thanks to Mike and Candy Donahue and the staff at Hunter's Creek for all their hard work in support of the Pine Meadow Golf Classic.
