HIGHLAND  LAKEs  SERVICE  LEAGUE

Scholarships: Pam Rogers – There is an April 16th deadline for all scholarship applications to be received.  She has received 2 now so far.  You can view the scholarship application on our website under “What We Do.” Adult women currently enrolled in a higher learning institution can apply. We give preference to those who will stay in the area. She has applications on hand if you want to take a hard copy home with you.

Golf Tournament:  Pam Parsons and Judy Salvaggio – FLO “For Ladies Only” Golf Tournament.  Judy announced that she now has close to $19,000 in sign sponsorships with 11 new sponsors.  She ask that we please support all of our sponsors. Pam Parsons went over a day in the life of the tournament so all volunteers would have a good idea of what is expected of them.

 *Jo Walker will put the sponsor signs on the 150 yard marker at each tee box.

 *Karyn Mason and crew will decorate at the tee boxes and putting green.  

 *Mary Kay Otto will be in charge of the putting contest.

 *Diane Shubert’s team will take photos as the teams come in and a light breakfast will be served.

 *Carolyn will go over the rules and send each team off. 

There will be a small silent auction. Teams will arrive at 7:30 for registration and receive a swag bag. There will be hole sitters to watch for the closest drive and chip. Karyn and team will decorate the restaurant once golfers leave. Golfers can bid before and after the tournament on the silent auction.  From 12 – 12:30 lunch and awards will be presented, Diane will take pictures of the winning teams. Sponsor signs will be picked up after play.  Volunteers can purchase lunch which includes a grilled chicken sandwich, cookies, water and tea. Email Pam if interested in lunch. 10 teams of four so far have signed up. Pam will email assignments and is still looking for volunteers. There is no dress code just wear your name tag. After all the players leave we will take down decorations and clean up. Remember that all sponsorship signs’ money goes to charity and the cost of the tournament is covered by the entry fees. Which makes the tournament self-funding.

Inspiration – Annette Ussery gave us a talk about growing up in Marble Falls and the Highland Lakes area. Growing up in a small town with a river running through it was magical.  The changes they have seen in the last 85 years is amazing. Thanks to Lyndon Johnson the PEC co-op brought electricity to our area. Her prayer is that we continue to care for this land we call home.
