Breezy Point Par-Tee News
Our turnout remained much the same this week – as did the weather – getting hotter as the day progressed. The Canadian geese haven’t gone north yet to cooler clime, so our course was not exactly ideal with our feathered friends donating their "reminders". We keep hoping that some of that famous Breezy Point weather will take over soon.
However, despite the messy greens, scores are gradually falling. Our lowest scorer was Barbara Caramelli, a real champ, with a 61! She’s not far from parring the course. Evelyn Gannon was once again in the sixties (66) this week. Not far behind was an ebullient Helen McDonald. Freshly returned from Florida where she must have really practiced. Helen ended up with a 67. Quite a few ladies scored in the 70’s. Among them were Inez Moriarty, Peg Hurley and Pat Disch (in her first game) all scoring 71; Tina Spina with a 72; Dorothy Dunne, Evie McVeigh, Barbara O’Brien, Cathy Benoit who all had 75; Anne Dowling (another first-gamer), Janis Murphy, Mildred Murphy, Eileen Klein, those Lynch gals, Vera and Marion all scored 76; Lil Klein 77; Marge O’Leary, Nancy Garito and Mary O’Rourke 78; and Sally Fitzpatrick had 79.
Barbara O’Brien not only scored a birdie, but also had a birdie-chip-in; Eileen Klein had chip-ins on the 9th and 10th holes; Mary Sullivan chipped in on the 12th. Great going gals. However, since we haven’t started collecting the chip-in pot yet so you will have to be satisfied with "the name not the money". Besides Barbara O’Brien, birdies were scored by Teresa Bean (2nd hole), Inez Moriarty (7th), Evie McVeigh (17th), Marilyn Higgins (5th), Helen McDonald (4th) and Barbara Caremelli and Evelyn Gannon scored double birdies. Congratulations girls, keep up the good work.
Now for the more mundane business: Watch for your PAR-TEE starting times this week. Lists will be posted at the coffee shop in the shopping mall, at the Roxbury Market and at the Activities Club. There will be food also. Sign up for the course.
In closing, a reminder: our veterans will be selling poppies on the road, with the ladies’ organization selling in the shopping mall. Please support them. They were there for us when we needed them.
