GRA­SONVILLE — Dark clouds and early morn­ing rain may have damp­ened the grounds of Prospect Bay Coun­try Club on Mon­day morn­ing, but that didn’t stop Gra­sonville Vol­un­teer Fire Com­pany’s an­nual golf tour­na­ment.

To help raise money to main­tain the var­i­ous ap­pa­ra­tuses used at the fire sta­tion, which were spread through­out the course, as well as to put funds to­wards pur­chas­ing a new fire­house, an en­deavor the fire com­pany has been sav­ing for mul­ti­ple years, com­mu­nity mem­bers filled golf carts and took to the 18hole course to com­pete. About 72 total golfers par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual fundraising tour­na­ment.

Tom Shea­han, event or­ga­nizer, thanked Homes for He­roes, Har­ris Crab House and Seafood Restau­rant, Wye River Ma­rine and Kelly Dis­trib­u­tors for be­ing main spon­sors of the tour­na­ment.

The team award win­ners plus their scores are as fol­lows: Billy Bar­rett, Ronnie Heck­man, Don­nie Beukema and John Gos­null, 58, first place; Clyde Kelly, Bill Hor­ney, Bobby Kelly and Justin Sch­nei­der, 59, sec­ond place; and David Cal­la­han, Greg Richards, Lance Neale and Hunter Kinkman, 60, third place.

The clos­est to the pin award went to Ja­son Tuel at seven feet, six inches. Other awards given out were the men and women’s long­est drive, awarded to James Ci­ganek and Lynne Kilby Ge­orge, re­spec­tively.
