The West Smoky Legion’s 4th annual Golf Tournament is fast approaching. September 17th the organization is hosting a 4 Ball, Best Ball tournament for Legion members and friends.
The annual tournament encourages members to have fun together. “We work hard over the year raising money and planning events for the community, this is one way we give back to our volunteers”, says organizer Eleanor Ford. Of course the event is not limited to current members, the Legion encourages other people to join the society as well and put in a team.
This years tournament is at the Gunby Ranch Golf Course in DeBolt where they prepare a fabulous steak supper for players. A five dollar 50/50 raffle for a Gunby Ranch golf membership will be part of the entertainment this year as well as prizes at each hole including; longest drive for both men and ladies, ball in the sand, and closest to the pin.
Once the Golf Tournament wraps up, members of the Legion will turn their focus back to the community. A joint initiative with the Bezanson Ag Society, the Golden Leaf Dine and Dance is a night full of fun laughter and dancing that you won’t want to miss! Planning begins in September of each year.
The West Smoky Legion #244 is also known for Remembrance Day events at the Bezanson School. October and November members prepare for the annual poppy drive, organizing Remembrance Day activities and also judge the wonderful posters, stories and poems that the school children submit.
