liv­ing in garfield

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Cor­po­rates will con­verge on Garfield Golf Club next Tues­day in aid of farmer re­lief.

With the event fully sub­scribed with 80 par­tic­i­pants, event or­gan­is­ers hope to raise a sig­nif­i­cant amount for char­ity.

Novelty games will also add to the fun and fundrais­ing on course.

Leesa Matthews of Garfield Golf Club said cor­po­rate spon­sors had sug­gested to use the event to raise money for farm re­lief.

She said the club was sup­port­ive of any event in sup­port of farm re­lief. “Garfield is in a ru­ral, farm­ing area,” she said. “With farm­ers work­ing in and around our com­mu­nity, it ticked all the boxes.

“Hav­ing had 20 years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing on a dairy farm my­self, I un­der­stand the chal­lenges farm­ers face with drought.

“But noth­ing can com­pare with what they are go­ing through at the mo­ment.

“They’re not only ex­pe­ri­enc­ing drought, but there is no sig­nif­i­cant rain­fall in sight.”
