On Tuesday we held the 22nd Annual Landing Restaurant / Manchester Essex Rotary Golf Tournament. Although several changes had to be made due to Covid-19, the day was perfect weatherwise, the play enthusiastic and the results very positive. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our team of volunteers who helped pull off the event without a hitch:  Day Ray singlehandedly sold, designed and delivered 24 Hole Sponsorship signs. Sarah Willwerth-Dyer handled the check in payments of the 83 golfers with her usual degree of perfection. Judy Laspesa, Deb Marcus & Diane Lindquist organized, sold and delivered our record setting raffles. Jack Costello was our promotion guru, photographer par excellence and (along with Judy Laspesa) the moderator of our live Facebook Awards Presentation. Jack and Josephine McCullough orchestrated the successful “On-The-Green” 50/50 Raffle. President Sean and Mike Storella also helped out in a big way by providing expert guidance and experience (not reflected in their golf game). And, of course, for the umpteenth year Mara Coleman aptly handled the beverage cart detail. A big round of applause and hearty thanks to all of you. Incidentally, 30 of or 41 members participated in the event in one way or another - fantastic teamwork - an example of Rotary Making a Difference.
Attached you will find a list of the Golf Winners in our tournament along with lists of the Hole Sponsors, Event Sponsors, and Raffle Prizes and Donors. I'll be sending out individual thank you notes in the near future.  Also included is an unaudited description of the financial results of our tournament. Again, thanks for everyone's support.
All the best,
