Our 4th Annual Golf Tournament on June 12, 2010, was a great success, not only because of the beautiful weather, despite a threatening morning. So many helping hands made this Golf Tournament memorable. For such an event, preparations begin early, prizes were solicited, put into baskets and wrapped, players sought and found, and so many little details to make everything fall into place on the actual date.
The Scranton Municipal Golf Course was a simple and beautiful venue for the occasion, healthy snacks and lots of water provided everybody with the necessary provisions and we Sisters circled the Golf Course to offer encouragement and prayers to players. The teams were tightly grouped on the top, though many admitted to just come for the fun. At the meal together, the last raffle drawings and, of course, the winners of the different team events were announced and brought many smiles and applause.
We were very much honored by the presence of Dr. Thomas Clauss, his large family had four-somes playing. He had for many years provided medical care to our Residents and sisters and his family has always been great friends of the Home. What a joy for the son of Dr. Thomas Clauss to present a check of over $22,000 to Mother Maureen which will be put to good use at Holy Family Residence.
