Great sup­port

CHB Mail - - News -

Yet again we have been left speech­less with the sup­port we re­ceived from the lo­cal com­mu­nity in CHB for our daugh­ter Lucy Owen’s fundrais­ing golf tour­na­ment held at the Waipawa Golf Club on 4 June to help with her travel ex­penses and day-to-day liv­ing cost on her 4th and fi­nal year of her golf­ing schol­ar­ship at the Univer­sity of Lit­tle Rock Arkansas, USA. De­spite the weather bomb that hit the area over the week­end, we had over 40 play­ers in the field and we thank Waipawa Golf Club for all their hard work and sup­port. The vol­un­teers that came for­ward with­out hes­i­ta­tion were also un­be­liev­able and we thank Peter Moore, Barb, Pete Aitken, and Pam Drylie. A huge thank you to John Bur­ton for sup­ply­ing and cook­ing all of the food again this year. The gen­eros­ity of the lo­cal com­mu­nity and busi­nesses was as­tound­ing and we are very grate­ful, es­pe­cially as many of these busi­nesses have sup­ported us for all four years. Golf holes at the tour­na­ment were spon­sored by Mike Bark­ers Con­trac­tors, Kitchens and More, R & S Gray, Fish­ing and Shoot­ing CHB, Waipawa Butch­ery, New World, Mitre 10, Unichem, Mills Honda, Farm­lands, John­son Elec­tri­cal, CHB Funeral Ser­vices, G & G Build­ing Ser­vices, Bald­win & Co Build­ing Ltd., and we were given do­na­tions from The Clock Shop Waipawa, Lime Rock Wines, Kiwi Kanz, BP Waipawa, Sloans Sadlery, Steven­son and Taylor Ltd, King­fisher Gifts Waipawa, Amar­via Blue, The Ris­ing Dough Bak­ery, ColorPlus, Papoose Shop Waipawa, Four Square Waipawa, Pam and Roger Drylie, Rid­di­fords Sports World, Wooden Edge, P.G.G Wright­son, Sloans Sad­dlery and Jew­ellery House. We also had in­di­vid­ual spon­sors of holes at the tour­na­ment in­clud­ing Glenn and Tim Keir, Alis­tair McMil­lan, Derek Wilde, Tim Mackie, Wil­lie and Brony Jensen, Gary and Chris Frisk and many do­na­tions from friends and fam­ily, all of which we are truly very grate­ful.

The sup­port for this event and Lucy was hum­bling to say the least and we are very grate­ful to ev­ery­one who helped make this the suc­cess it was and your on go­ing sup­port of Lucy and the youth of CHB. The Owen fam­ily
