Through the generosity of 25 Keepers and Woodmont member sponsors the 3rd Annual Keepers/SMGA/Wounded Warriors Outing was held at Woodmont on June 25th. Smiles abounded as 11 Keepers and 17 Warriors participated in an afternoon of golfin’ fun which included instruction time with Trillium Sellers, John Ronis, and Brice Busse, a picnic lunch, 18 holes of zoysia golf on the South Course, and some spinning of yarn after the golf over drinks and munchies.
Our guests included military husbands and wives, older and younger brothers, buddies, and folks of all ilk who have served their country protecting the freedoms we share. This is always a special day for both The Keepers and the Warriors who spend time sharing stories, jokes, and an occasional high five……kind of what we do all the time with our friends on the golf course.
These are special people who are blessed to have this SMGA/Wounded Warriors program provide them with golf lessons, equipment, assistive devices, and a strong dose of what the game of golf can do for your soul. Talking with them it is unanimous how much Jim Estes and his folks have done for them through this program in helping them rediscover a little bit of normalcy in their lives.
Thanks to all of the sponsors who helped underwrite this afternoon’s fun. We were able to add another $750 to our fund that facilitates a donation to the SMGA/Wounded Warriors at year’s end.
