Greene County Habitat Golf Marathon Held October 17

On a fine October day that hinted of Fall and begged golfers to head to the links, a hearty group of players did just that . . . for fun and for a great cause!

Greene County Habitat for Humanity (GCHFH), under the leadership of Board Members Robert Boatright and Jan Broughton, once again asked the community to unite in a 100 Hole Marathon Round of Golf with a single purpose . . . to build affordable homes where once none stood.

Kicking off the tournament, Honorary Chairman Lyn Lott, a former PGA professional who played on Tour for 11 years, greeted the teams as they headed to the links.  His interest in their success spilled over to signing team photos while chatting with each group as they made their way to the 19th Hole.

Congratulations go the Sugar Run, a neighborhood group made up of Stu Scherer, Carlton Curtis, Doug Denholm and Bill Doyle, who were our first place winners for raising more money than any other team!  Bev Burwell, a member of the Fore! Fun team, won the putting contest sponsored by Metro Water Filter.

Congratulations and thank you as well to every team member, winners all, for your enthusiastic endurance. As the saying goes, “You Rock” for committing to raise money while playing twenty-five holes of Harbor Club fun!

These area businesses “rock” too!  Thank you to Bank South and Bank South Mortgage for providing abundant drinks, snacks and individual goodie bags; to Chick-fil-A, Madison for providing their famously favorite sack lunches; to Susan Merrell for being our focused photographer; and to Coldwell Banker and co-chair Robert Boatright for providing re-energizing refreshments for the 19th Hole.

We give additional heartfelt thanks to the following Marathon sponsors: The Arians Foundation, Georgia Skin Cancer & Aesthetic Dermatology, Metro Water Filter, Military and Commercial Fasteners, Novelis, Publix, and the Rothlisberger Foundation.

And to all our volunteers who helped make the day possible, we give a spirited thank you.  We are stronger and more resolute because of your support.

Greene County Habitat for Humanity seeks to put God’s love into action, bringing people together to build homes, communities and hope. Fellow Greene County citizens, pre-approved and ready to take on the responsibility of home ownership, are the primary beneficiaries of the GCHFH leadership’s commitment to this goal.

You are invited to become part of the team effort to ensure the “win” of a citizenry safe and comfortable in a home of their own.  Call Samantha Rockey or Lori Abramson at the GCHFH Office to learn more or to volunteer. (706-453-1718)
