This past Sun­day, May 29 was the an­nual Memo­rial Golf Tour­na­ment to hon­our de­parted brothers. For a few years Brother Elmer Kerbes was the hon­ouree, then Brother Lloyd Dun­can was in­cluded. Now the Memo­rial Golf Tour­na­ment has re­verted back to be­ing non­spe­cific. Our Com­mu­nity owes a lot to both Elmer and Lloyd but time passes and it’s only fair to in­clude all those who have made con­tri­bu­tions to make this Lodge a strong force in the area. It was a beau­ti­ful day for the tour­na­ment and the course was in tip top shape. Thanks to the Golf Club and the work par­ties who ti­died up the greens. Paul Jensen whacked the dan­de­lions so hope­fully they won’t be as abun­dant. 49 golfers came out to en­joy the break­fast and beef on a bun lunch. Thanks to Bill for the sup­plies and to all who or­ga­nized and cooked. Len Cur­rie again did a yeo­man job on the golf side and as M.C. Thanks to Sharon and An­nette for their con­tri­bu­tions on be­half of Elmer and Lloyd and ku­dos to Kent for honour­ing Brother Elmer ev­ery year. Af­ter the dust, or sand in this case, set­tled that sand bag­ger Curt Watts came up with the win­ning group with an amaz­ing round of 26. Mem­bers on the team were Ar­lene Oswald, Lynn Tomku­lak, Amanda Baird, Randy Mag­nus­son and Curt. Must have been the lady power. Con­grats to them and thanks to Sharon and An­nette for pre­sent­ing the tro­phies. All in all it was a great event and many thanks to all of you who took the time to come out and en­joy. The ca­ma­raderie is ob­vi­ous and it’s great to see the sup­port we get. See you all next year.
