On August 18th it was a day filled with fun and golf when the Stittsville and District Lions Club charity tournament was held at the Canadian Golf and Country Club. Although hot and humid to start, the rain that hit the greens cooled things off nicely.
All proceeds from the day are being donated to Camp Banting the longest running Canadian camp for children living with Type 1 Diabetes and operates in partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).

In all 64 players turned out to golf making up 16 teams. The Master of Ceremonies for the day was Kurt Stoodley (formerly of CTV news and now a real estate broker). The players came from as far away as Morrisburg, Cornwall, Pembroke, Petawawa, Cumberland, Orleans and Westport. Teams were also entered from NovaTech Technologies, Log’s End, Stittsville Lions club and teams made up of friends of the Stittsville Lions Club.
First place in the tournament was Logs End Inc. with team members Gord Black, Tom Howarth, Rob Black and Dylon Wisotzki. Second place went to the Westport Lions Club. Looks like Westport will be hosting the golf tournament next year for the Governor’s Project.

Volunteers for the golf event were: Clare Redtman, Marilyn Southall, Sarah Monk, Brenda Miller, Marion Gullock, Don Zogola, Ron Armstrong, Renee Devenny and Jim Devenny. The Stittsville Lions thank you all – without your support and hard work, the event would not have been the success that it was.

Each hole held a sponsor sign outlining the donations that came from local Stittsville businesses and others.
The $8,000 Hole in One was not won this year. There is always next year!
