Although golf weather has been a bit “under par,” area golfers, individuals and businesses have been kindly opening their hearts to area children in support of the Community Health Network Lucille Schultz Caring For Kids golf outing scheduled for Wednesday, June 15th at Mascoutin Golf Club in Berlin.
