REGION – On Sunday, Sept.17, 2017, the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 36 Ludlow held their 13th annual golf tournament at Crown Point Country Club in Springfield. The overall winners shooting a 57 or 15 under par consisted of the team of Jake Lombard, Joel Lombard, Kurt Lombard, and Troy Demers. This year’s tournament was a fundraiser to support the Veteran’s Place in Northfield; Steve England, State of Vermont Detachment of Vermont Commander with his project supporting Veterans; children and families and the National Commander’s project in support of the recent weather disasters in the United States. With the support of the 20 teams who participated in this year’s tournament, as well as our local sponsors, we were able to donate $5,000 to these worthy causes. Other tournament winners were Ned Bowen for closest to the pin on hole 9, Mike Hyjek for closest to the pin on hole 18, and Cindy Bowen for closest to the line.
