Raising money for at- risk girls
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.
