Lodge 316 September News
This year, for our community Matching Funds project, Lodge 316 again joined the Christopher Meddaugh Foundation to raise funds for scholarships to Notre Dame High School students in Bethlehem Township, PA. This is the Foundation's 8th annual golf outing and it continues to be successful.
The event was a four-person scramble with a shotgun start. During play, there were contests for Hitting the Green and Closest to the Pin. This year’s outing drew 39 golfers. Each golfer received a backpack with snacks, golf balls and tees, a golf towel, sunscreen and device cleaners.
Thanks to GCU, Shop Rite, and Notre Dame High School for these donations. Following the golf, six additional friends and family joined the group for a delicious buffet and fellowship. Prizes were awarded to the day’s wnners.
Over the past eight years the golf outing has provided scholarships to both high school graduates and returning students. To date, $23,000.00 in scholarships have been awarded, $2,500.00 donated to Notre Dame's science lab upgrades and $3,100.00 was donated to the Immune Deficiency Foundation for education and research. These donations and scholarships were all made in Christopher's memory. Thank you to everyone who has supported this event over the last eight years!
