Club raises funds for memorial scholarship
DEARBORN – Jim Ives and Toni Tront are not likely to make any bets on the odds that two golfers playing in the same outing would make a hole in one on their first shots of the day.
However, they were the lucky players and prize winners who participated in the Rotary Club of Dearborn’s Hugh Archer Golf Outing at Dearborn Hills Golf Course late last month.
“We promised golfers a fun event,” said Roger Miller, chairman of the fourth annual golf outing which helps raise scholarship funds in memory of the late Rotarian and city resident Hugh Archer. “We just didn’t know it would be quite this exciting.”
Event organizers were prepared with prizes for both hole-in-one winners who received golf trips —Ives to Las Vegas and Tront to Garland, Mich.
Other winners of the outing included the men’s team of Rick Goward, Pat Jensen, Randy Knight and Joe Guido who earned prizes and recognition as the overall winners. Women’s team winners were Julie Pucci, Pam Leshinsky, Sharon Langen and Corrine Celeski. Mixed team winners included Tim Peck, Lucy Peck, Maureen Wall and Jan Clarey.
Proceeds from the outing will help provide a scholarship award of $3,000 to a 2010 high school senior attending a public or private high school in the city.
Additional scholarship information and an online application are available on the club’s Web site at www.dearbornrotary.org.
Established in 1923, the Dearborn Rotary Club is one of 33,000 clubs located in more than 200 countries worldwide. It meets every Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the Fairlane Club on Hubbard Drive in Dearborn. Guests are always welcome.
