Lions golf tournament a success

The weather wasn't particularly helpful, but everyone had a good time at this year's event.

The Ashcroft and District Lions Club held its annual golf tournament on September 17 at Semlin Valley golf course. Even though the weather was rainy and cool, it did not deter 39 golfers from taking part and having a good time. The winning team was that of Willy Ghostkeeper, Luke Ghostkeeper, Chelsea Ghostkeeper, and Norm Brezina, with Chelsea also winning the women’s KP and closest to the rope titles. Dennis Morrison won the men’s KP, Bert Wiliams was the man closest to the rope, and Elaine Gagne and Stan Aie won the women’s and men’s putting contests. The Lions presented appreciation certificates to all the businesses that donated prizes, and thanked them for supporting the tournament and the club. A certificate was also presented to Semlin Valley’s Sharon Rupert, who put on a very nice dinner for everyone.
