VAMSF – Golf Outing

Ball on tee




Wednesday, June 20th, Quarry Ridge Golf Course, Portland, CT

You were there, weren’t you?

Even though we got off to late start due to a horrific accident on Route 9, play moved right along under partly cloudy skies with a light breeze and low humidity.  PERFECT golf weather, and everyone was in the clubhouse by 3:30 PM.

At the conclusion of the Banquet meal, Rick reminded us of why we were all there (to raise money for scholarships to worthy individuals pursing a career in nursing) and of the organization’s namesake, Vera Arterburn.  He introduced Dennis Cleary and Matt Barrett, two VAMSF Board Members at the event.  Then, on to the awards!

Our first place team this year was the Mark Rakauskas’ Nurse Network group with a team score of 59 followed closely by the threesome of Bill and Mary Kuhn and Karl Molitoris with a 60.  Longest male drive on the 12th Hole was Kyle Bousquet; longest female drive on the 12th hole was Karen Chadderton.

Our 9th Hole 50/50 Raffle Winner was Ray Hackling who took home a sizeable prize.  The General Raffle draws were for golfing and non-golfing prizes all of which were exceptional.  Thank you to the many participants who brought prizes for the Raffle table.

Thank you to our Golf Outing Committee.  And thank you to the Quarry Ridge Golf Course and Restaurant in Portland, CT who have hosted us for, lo, these many many years now.  Looking forward to next year.

Enjoy your summer and know that you did a good thing Wednesday by helping the Vera Arterburn Memorial Scholarship Fund raise money to ensure its mission.  And don’t forget to attend the CAHCF/CCAL Annual Meeting on July 12th to see the 2018 VAMSF Scholarship Award Winners!
