Editor of the Reformer:
A perfect Vermont day with sunny blue skies provided the perfect setting for the Brattleboro High School/Brattleboro Union High School Annual Alumni Golf Tournament held Saturday, June 18, at the Brattleboro Country Club.
Eighteen teams with 72 alumnus teed off that morning at 8:30 and with the occasional roars of the crowd echoing around the course, no doubt, a great outing was enjoyed by all.
Known highlights of this year's tournament included the team of Hugh Barber, Dana Zelenakas, Mike Cassidy and Jamie McAuliffe taking home the first place prize. Congratulations for a big day for Chris Haskins who experienced the thrill of a lifetime with a Hole In One on No. 16. Our annual putting contest provided great entertainment and this year was no exception; a $5 donation would buy three chances to win the 50/50 prize. Unbelievably, ten of our golfers used their skill and a lot of luck to make one putt apiece. At the tournament's conclusion rather than a "putt-off," the finalists decided on the luck of the draw with one of our first place team members, Mike Cassidy, being named as the overall winner.
The BHS/BUHS Alumni Association would like to take this opportunity to offer our thanks to the following sponsors for this year's tournament — MGB Plumbing, Bartlesville, OK (Mike Bouvier), BUHS Class of 1964, Cersosimo Lumber (Butch Cersosimo,), Cocoplum Appliance (Ray Carbonell), DMI, Inc. (Dave Manning), Richards Agency (Mark Richards), the Avery Family Trust (Susan Avery, 64), and The River Valley Credit Union.
The Alumni Committee would again like to extend our appreciation to each one who participated in this year's tournament. Please remember, it is you who make our Association the success it has been over these many years. And most importantly, through your continued financial support whether through tournament entrance fees, the purchase of mulligans, participating in the putting contest or coming out to our annual dance, or paying your dues, in all ways such as these you are supporting our future graduates. Finally, we acknowledge that next year will be better than ever exceeding all expectations of those who choose to come back and participate in 2017.
