UPS Holds 10th Green Mountain United Way Golf Classic
On Friday, July 17th, ten foursomes of golfers gathered at the Country Club of Barre to participate in the 10th Annual Golf Classic for the benefit of Green Mountain United Way. Organizing the event were employees of the local United Parcel Service locations in Berlin and St. Johnsbury.
UPS has traditionally been a loyal supporter of the United Way, not only through individual payroll deductions, but also through special events such as this golf tournament. Their employees use this event also as an invitation to the general public to join them in furthering the programs of the local United Way as a means to better the community.
Eagle sponsors of this year’s tournament were Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont and Chouinard Comfort Colors. Birdie sponsors were Crosstown Towing and Northstar Fireworks. Seven other local businesses sponsored holes and the Hole-In-One contest was sponsored by Capitol City Buick GMC, which provided a brand new pickup truck as the prize should one golfer get a hole in one on a particular hole.
Cornerstone Pub and Catering provided a great meal at the close of the tournament during which lots of prizes and awards were presented.
The tournament was expertly coordinated by volunteers Randy Tullar, Laurie Kelty, Pam Bailey, Carole Lacasse, Thana Adams, Marius Brumback, Phil Parson and Phil Zunder.
Be sure to keep this fun tournament in mind for next year. To get your name in early, contact Randy Tullar at email@example.com.
