Breezy Point Par Tee Golf Celebrates 25 Years
Words of wisdom about golf according to Sam Snead: If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork the way they do a golf club, they'd starve to death. The Par Tee Golf ladies celebrated our 25th anniversary with a luncheon at "Russo's on the Bay" on September 13, and no one came near starving to death.
The food was delicious, the service wonderful, and the ambiance beautiful!! And the entertainment was fabulous!!!!
The quintet of Anita McLoughlin, Mary McDermott, Betty Weed, Helen Mahon, and Maureen McGuire sang and danced and the standing ovation they received was well-deserved. What a sensational group!!
The beautiful centerpieces and decorations on display are credited to Anita McLoughlin. It was just a perfect day thanks to the efforts of our chair ladies: Alice Mateos and Bea Sharrock. Congratulations on a superior job!!!
