Welcome to our newest Newbie Graduates who finished the program on October 15th. They played their final golf round as Newbies and came into the fire pit area with Pomp and Circumstances playing. The fourteen who graduated include Beth Blynt, Elisa Colkitt, Helen Czernik, Becky Harrell, Lola Hilton, Barbara Johnston, Grace Leon, Tammy McGraw, Maureen Montgomery, Connie Outten, Ella Rabil, Lainie Reed, Ann Rust, Jean Spencer, Beth Wadle, Bev Goldsmith, Deanna McDole, Ginny Merritt. Judi Flakowicz and Carol Riggins introduced the graduates to Bunker Bees where each one received a welcome bag of goodies. Thanks to the Professional Staff for continuing this incredible program. A big thank you to the mentors Colleen Hummel, Cheri Cosgrove, Mary Kendrick, and Donna Countryman for another successful year.

Please mark your calendars for November 9th for the last Quarterly of the 2021 season. Golf will begin at 9:00 am followed by the general meeting at 11:30 am and lunch. In this meeting we will elect the 2022 LGA Board.

Finally, mark your calendar for the Jingle Bell Luncheon, December 7 at 11:30 am social, followed by lunch and gift exchange. Gifts should be under $50, wrapped or bagged. The third owner of any gift will take it home. Also, as a suggestion from a member, we will be collecting non-perishable food items to take to the Beach Food Pantry following the luncheon. Please considering bringing some items to share with our neighbors who may still be struggling.

Hit ‘em long and straight
