Save the date: Thursday, May 25, for the Rotary Golf Tournament!
A spring tradition, the Rotary Golf Tournament in support of Habitat will bring together Rotarians and golfers together at Cedarbrook Country Club to swing a club in support of Habitat homebuilding in our community. Jointly sponsored by the Yadkin Valley and Yadkinville Rotary Clubs, the tournament has been an annual activity of the clubs as the Rotarians live out their motto of “Service above Self”. More information about the clubs can be found here and here.
This year’s event also celebrates the birthdays of Rotarians Jerry Stroud of the Yadkin Valley club and David Nance of the Yadkinville Club. So in addition to a Cedarbrook lunch and a great round of golf, expect more birthday party surprises!
