Breezy Point Par-Tee News by Marion Lynch
The course today was too perfect to pass up! Except for the soft sound of the crashing surf in the background and the twittering of the birds, it seemed like an oasis of serenity under skies of billowing clouds and gently flowing breezes. The sun only peeked out occasionally and the breezes stayed cool and refreshing.
As a result, we had 14 teams out to play, and many are now practically steady 60-hitters. Joan McNally, with her accurate shots, scored the lowest, a 62; Eileen Wastson and Nancy Heffernan followed closely behind with 63; Peggy Ansbro had 64; Lil Canavan (back after a long absence) scored 65, as did Pam Armour; Pat Wheeler had 66; Barbara O’Brien 68; and squeezing under the wire were Mary O’Rourke, Evelyn Gannon, Bunny GaNun, Tess Kearney and Helen McDonald, all scoring 69. Great playing gals!
Not far behind and still aiming for those 60’s were Lil Keim 70; Muriel Hellreigel 71; Mary Ellen Hogan 73, and Mildred Seligman 74. The most popular score, 75, was claimed by Barbara Caramelli, Joan Fallon, Marge O’Leary, Marge Driscoll, Cathy Benoit, Dorothy Dunne, Janis Murphy and Dorothy Chandler. Staying close behind them were Inez Moriarity, Evie McVeigh and Ann Prior with 76; Pat Powere 77; Ann Dowling, Mildred Duffy, Peggy Joyce, and Lil Hanratty 78, and Sally Fitzpatrick with 79.
Birdies were scored by Inez Moriarity and Ann Dowling on the 1st hole; Mildred Duffy 2nd; Barbara O’Brien 5th; Bunny GaNun 6th; Lil Keim 7th; Nancy Heffernan 11th; Eileen Watson 12th; and Lil Canavan on the 18th. Chip-ins were scored by Teresa Bean and Pam Armour on the 10th; Peggy Joyce on 16; and Kate Hanratty on 15. Chip-in-Birdies were captured by Joan McNally on the 6th; Muriel Hellreigel on 14; and Bernice Carroll on the 17th.
A lovely surprise luncheon was given by the committee "on the house". Thank-you from all of us! Thanks, also, to Frank Tropea and Myles Driscoll, who so amiably and ably set up the tables and saw that all the ladies had drinks. They give their time freely and we gals greatly appreciate their efforts. In addition to scoring a birdie-chip-in, Bernice Carroll also won the 50-50.
The extra prize a la our CEO, Mary Sullivan, of $25 was won by Ann Lane, who, luckily, was present (a requirement of the winning).
Unfortunately, we must end this column on a sad note. One of our members, Mildred Murphy and her husband Timmy have just received word that their son Donald was killed in a car accident in Florida. He was a son of whom they were justly proud, having worked his way up through the military to the rank of Colonel. All of us in PAR-TEE want to extend our sincere sympathy to Mildred and Timmy and their family on their great loss, and in this time of sorrow. Our prayers are with you, and Donald. May he rest in peace.
