The an­nual Elks Aid­more Golf Fore Kids tour­na­ment was held Sept. 12 at Hard La­bor Golf Course in Rut­ledge. The regis­tra­tion be­gan at 8 a.m. with Tee Off at 9 a.m. There was sun­shine, cof­fee and donuts, and a great turnout of Ge­or­gia Elks, their wives and other folks from all over the state.

In ad­di­tion to some great golf, the play­ers were served de­li­cious ham­burg­ers, hot dogs cooked over the grill, chips and drinks for lunch which were pre­pared un­der the di­rec­tion of Mor­gan Stapp and other mem­bers of the Lake Oconee Elks Lodge.

Cash prizes were given for first and sec­ond place win­ners in each flight. The Cov­ing­ton Elks Lodge, with the help of the Aux­il­iary, sold chances this sum­mer on this dou­ble wed­ding ring quilt, hand­made by Hazel Stowe of Cov­ing­ton. She also sold the winning ticket to Judy Knight, who works at the New­ton County Recre­ation Depart­ment. The quilt was do­nated to help raise funds for the Aid­more Golf Tour­na­ment. All of the pro­ceeds went to the Elks Aid­more Chil­dren’s Home in Cony­ers, a non-profit resi- den­tial fa­cil­ity for ado­les­cent fe­males who have prob­lems that re­quire a more struc­tured en­vi­ron­ment than can be pro­vided in their home or com­mu­nity set­ting.
