Rotary Golf Tourney Highlight
SPRINGFIELD – With the help of an 8-year-old, Team Schlather & Birch took home first place honors at the 2016 Cooperstown Rotary Foundation’s Lyn Edinger Memorial Golf Tournament, held Sunday September 18th at Meadow Links Golf Course.
At the last minute, team captain, Bob Schlather had a cancellation by one of his foursome. But fortunately team member Rodney Campbell brought along his 8 year old son Mason who more than held his own, and along with Earle Hayford, the foursome captured top honors in the Captain & Crew format. They each received a $50 gift certificate to local restaurants including Mel’s at 22, Bocca Osteria, New York Pizzeria and Alex’s Bistro.
