ATTENTION GOLFERS:  There will be a charity golf tournament  at Hacienda Golf Course on Sunday, September 25, 2016, to raise money for SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy).  It is a degenerative neuromuscular disease that robs children of strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord resulting in their inability to walk, eat or breath.  It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants.

The fee is $100 per golfer to cover the cost of a box lunch, 18 holes of golf, and an awards dinner.  ($25 of this amount may be taken as  charitable deduction.)   There will be no cash awards, but prizes will be awarded for specific events.  There will also be a 50/50 drawing, a silent auction, gift baskets, and mulligans to buy.     Hole-in-One prizes include 2 golf carts and possibly 2 cars as well.   Non-golfers may attend the dinner for $30. Dunning Shaw will perform at the awards banquet.

Specifics on this scramble can be found at

The Girl Scout Alumnae Silver Trefoil Group of The Villages is again conducting its service project to collect pajamas and books for the homeless children of Lake, Marion, and Sumter Counties.  Red boxes will be at the recreation centers October through the middle of December.  Donations are much appreciated.  FYI: 6,000 homeless children live in the three counties.  Last year despite the collection of 5,000 pairs of pajamas, 1,000 children were left unaided.
