(L-r) Ladies night golfer

By Leslie Stirling

Wow, the weather man was extremely kind to the lady Golfers on Tuesday night, Aug. 19.

Loads of rain fell in the morning, but the late afternoon and early evening were ideal golfing weather.

Fifty-nine ladies turned out for our annual Golf for Cancer, and I am pleased to report that we raised close to $4000.

We also had a lot of fun and some excellent food.

This week’s report is one simply huge thank you.  Thanks to all those lady golfers who took a chance on the weather and came out winners. Thanks to all the folks that gathered pledges.  Thanks to all the folks who made pledges.  Thanks to all the people who donated prizes of all shapes.  Thanks to all our regular sponsors.  Thanks to the dessert and cookie ladies.  Thanks to Chinook Cove staff for treating us all so well.  Thanks to our fearless leader, Debbie Rainer.  And finally thanks to the local unit of the Canadian Cancer Society.  Keep up the good work.
