The 13th annual Pine Meadow Charity Golf Tournament took place on June 21 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 $16 900. These funds are used for a variety of items at Pine Meadow which cannot be included in the regular budget.
Over the 13 years of the tournament's history the items purchased have included a defibrillator, mobile shelving units, towel and blanket warmers, solo electric beds, wrought iron fencing and concrete walkways in the courtyard and garden areas, a picnic shelter, SARA and other overhead lifts, Hi-low beds, and more. The funds are also used for monthly excursions for residents at Pine Meadow. Funds raised this year will be used to purchase wrought iron fencing for a new courtyard space behind the Pine Meadow expansion and for this year's excursions.
This year 71 golfers participated in the tournament on a bright, sunny day at Hunter's Creek. The Flynn family was well represented with 16 participants. Raffle prizes included a beautiful quilt made by the Land O’ Lakes Quilters and valued at $1100, which was won by Marilyn Stewart and a propane barbeque subsidized by Lookout Building Centre in Plevna, valued at $660, won by Luella Foster. There was also a 50/50 draw with a prize of $130, won by the Flynn family, who generously donated the money back to the fund. The microwave, donated by Smitty's Appliances, was the prize for the ladder golf game and was won by Dave Anthony.
The members of the first place team at the tournament were Jeff South, John South, Miller Hodgins and Dave Anthony. The second place team was comprised of Mark Freeburn, Michael Wood, Travis McLuckie and Cory Andrew, who donated their winnings back to the charity. The men's closest to the pin was won by Gregg Wise and the women's closest to the pin was won by Barb Dion. The men's longest drive was won by Don Fobert and the women's longest drive was won by Freida Hynne.
