The Legacy of Honor Tournament had a rain delay this year and was held on Monday, September 4th instead of Sunday, September 3rd due to the weather. We were worried that that date change might "dampen" the day as far as attendance. We had nothing to worry about.

Thank you all so much for attending, golfing, donating, contributing in any way to make the day a huge success. Our raffle ticket drawings will be held on Veteran’s Day so there is still time to buy a raffle ticket with great prizes. They are being sold at The Hancock House Hotel or The Hancock Liquor Store.

Thanks again to all that continue to support our cause. God Bless you, and God Bless America.
