On Monday the 2nd of October, 4 members from VFW Post 9808 (Tommy Cashin, Jay Ellis, Norm Reyburn and Ron Scoville) played in the Operation Purple Heart Truck Support Tournament at Hanover Golf Course.  The WAM Charity Golf Tournament was a Captain’s choice tournament and has been played annually for the past 11 years. This year the proceeds are going to fund the operation and maintenance of the Purple Heart Firetruck. Walter Cornett, one of the organizers hosting the tournament, said they were just short of the goal that was set.  This was a well-run tournament that kicked off with lunch from Mission Barbeque and ended with dinner from Outback Steak House. It also featured a number of raffle items given away for those that purchased raffle tickets at check-in.  The VFW team played well and shot 9 under par, finishing in the middle of the teams.  The Post has been a supporter of this 501 (c) (3).  Walter Cornett announced that they would hold this tournament again next year and based on our experience this year I would recommend putting a team together and join in the fun.  One of our post members did just that, thanks to Les Nevins for his team entry in this year’s event.
