School / Community: Dutch Settlement Elementary School

On Saturday, November 5th, forty-four brave golfers ventured out to participate in the Iron Man Golf Tournament held at Fox Hollow Golf Club.  The tournament was organized by Rick Vacheresse and Becky Turner along with the support of owner Bette Gourly. Proceeds from the tournament were donated to support the breakfast program at Dutch Settlement Elementary School.
Community businesses made generous donations of money and prizes to support the tournament.  Volunteers prepared a delicious roast beef dinner and gingerbread for dessert.

The cheque for almost $5000 was presented by Rick Vacheresse, Becky Turner and Bette Gourly, to Dutch Settlement Elementary School in support of the school breakfast program.  Accepting the cheque on behalf of the school were Barb Juliusson(teacher), Valerie Dowe (volunteer) and Heather Killen (principal). 

The staff and students of Dutch Settlement Elementary School would like to thank the organizers, volunteers and golfing participants for their generous donation.
