Our 4th annual golf  tournament is in the books and was a huge success.  17  teams competed on a warm Friday.  Championship flight 1st place team is Jake Friedrich, Kyle Jackman, Carter Camp and Brett Knoetzel.  All golfers enjoyed burgers and brats following their golf.  We raised over $1000 and those proceeds are ear-marked towards remodeling the Long Term Care nurse's station. 

A BIG thank you to Pam, Shelly, Jina, Robin, Renae, Brittany, Kat, Jackie, Ashley, Mirya and Bailey for all their help in planning,registering, grilling, setting up, cleaning up and for being there.  The delicious fruit salad was donated by multiple employees and enjoyed by all.
