Thank you so much to our volunteer co-chairs Kerry Tait, Insurance by Ken Brown, and Keith Quint, Gorman Company. We are ready to sign you up for your teams or sponsorship of our Annual Golf Tournament happening Friday, May 19 at Halifax Plantation. Check-in is at noon with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m. Forms have been emailed to the Chapter.

We have many contests that need sponsorship and we are looking to confirm teams now. You will receive a discounted price if you sign up early. We need to be prepared, so if you don't get your form and payment in before May 5 there will be an extra fee for processing – so sign up today.

You may easily fill out the forms and pay on Square with the forms sent via email to the Chapter. Thank you for your continued support of our Annual Golf Tournament!

Your Board has decided to go with a hybrid approach to this year's meetings and events. If you want to sponsor or volunteer for 2023, please let Di know! We appreciate your continued support!
