KILLINGTON, Vt. – On Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021, the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 36 in Ludlow held their 17th annual golf tournament at Killington Golf Course in Killington, Vt. Thanks to Chris Kenison and his staff at the Killington Golf Course. They are a top-notch team.
One team was lucky to see a mother bear with her three cubs strolling across the course. One of the cubs decided to steal one of the tee markers. We guess he was taking it back to the den to play with his siblings.
The overall winners shooting a 60, or 12 under par, consisted of the team of Seth Mailhiot, Cody Surething, Torey Surething, and John Taylor Jr. Other tournament winners included Bruce Ingerson for closest to the pin for men and Suzanne Auger for closest to the pin for women. The closet to the line winner was Tom Hyjek.
This tournament is a fundraiser to support our veterans and children. With the support of the players who participated in this year’s tournament as well as our local sponsors, we are able to donate to these worthy causes.
The Sons would like to thank all the volunteers who helped make this tournament possible, especially Gary and Deana Blanchard, Becky Parker and Terry Peabody who made sure all the players had a fabulous lunch.
