Despite overcast skies and a brief sun shower, nothing could dampen the spirits of the nearly 100 golfers who hit the links June 11 for our Residents and to honor local funeral director Vince Vanston at the Scranton Municipal Golf Course.
But before the shot-gun start at 1:30 p.m., the golfers built up their strength by snacking on fresh fruit courtesy of DiMare Fresh, Inc. and Hazzouri Brothers & Co., Inc. Banana Distributors, both of Scranton.
Following a welcome from Mother Maureen, l.s.p. and golf tournament co-chairperson Pat Sheridan, Father Francis E. Kelly, chaplain of Holy Family Residence, offered a prayer for the golfers as well as the individuals and businesses that supported the tournament.
Following their four and half hours of play, which included a chance to win a brand new car from Burne Honda, the golfers and volunteers enjoyed a nice dinner together. After dinner, Mother and Mr. Sheridan presented the tournament and raffle winners with their prizes.
It was a great day for all of us, and we have already started planning next year’s tournament!
