It may have been sweltering July weather, but the Lady Putters had thoughts of cooler weather ahead as they celebrated Christmas in July to support the Green Valley/Amado Food Bank. Wearing their red and green and many sporting holiday jewelry, 44 ladies came armed with 217 pounds of groceries and $600 in monetary donations. These monetary donations alone will give the Food Bank $5100 worth of buying power.
In addition to food staples like peanut butter and tuna fish, many of the ladies brought cleaning, hygiene and paper products, all of which can be a large portion of one’s grocery bill. By law a food bank cannot use cash donations to buy non-food items so these are really appreciated by food bank clients.
After they putted, the ladies enjoyed a refreshing grilled peach and chicken salad with raspberry sherbet and a wafer for dessert.
Although their putting period was shortened because of the renovation taking place on the driving range, there were still some ladies who did very well.
Scoring a hole-in-one on the Mystery Hole on July 20 was Joyce Walton. She received $5. Kathy Guy earned the Coveted Quail with a Low Net score of 30.75. Dee Waggoner was recognized for the Low Gross score of 35. Mary Anderson had seven holes-in-one in the three week putting period.
Achieving a score of under 40 for the first time in her putting career was Gail Scheibner with a 39. The only Money Hole Winner was Sylvia Forehand.
