LUDLOW, Vt. – On Sunday, September 11, 2016, the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 36 Ludlow held their 12 annual golf tournament at Crown Point County Club in Springfield. After a one-hour delay due to heavy thunderstorms the skies opened up to a beautiful sunny day. The overall winners shooting a 57 or 15 under par consisted of the team of Jake Lombard, Joel Lombard, Kurt Lombard and Dave O’Neill.
This years’ tournament was a fundraiser to support the Open Door Mission in Rutland, the Dodge House in Rutland and our State Commander Henry Cleveland with his commander’s project supporting Veterans, children and families. With the support of the twenty-two teams who participated in this year’s tournament as well as our local sponsors we were able to donate $5,000.00 to these worthy causes. Other tournament winners were Zack Fortuna, closest to the pin for men, Marion Pickielnok, closest to the pin for women and Linda West, closest to the line.
The Sons would like to thank all the volunteers who helped make this tournament possible as well as the following hole sponsors who without their generous donations this tournament would not have been possible: Aubuchon Hardware, Ballard Hobart American Legion Post #36, Ballard Hobart American Legion Auxiliary Unit #36, Baker Distributing, Benson’s Chevrolet, Inc., Black River Produce, Brewfest Beverage Co., Carrara’s Rust Proofing & Gun Shop, Cleveland Cedar Products, Cota & Cota, Inc., Countryside Lock & Alarms, Inc., Crowley Cheese Factory, Crown Point Country Club, Dave Berry Woodworking, Dave’s Electrical Service, Devereux Builders, Diamond Realty, D.J.’s Restaurant, Farrell Distributing, Garvey & Garvey, Inc., Gilcris Enterprises, Green Mountain National Golf Course, Green Mountain Sugar House, G & S Connection, Inc., Hair By Paula, Inc., Imery’s Talc, Inc., John C.
