WAUSEON: August 7, 2014: The Wauseon Chamber of Commerce held their annual “Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic” on July 7 at Ironwood Golf Course in Wauseon, raising money for Wauseon High School Senior Scholarships.
This year’s classic enjoyed tremendous support, with over 50 teams participating and enjoying a wonderful summer afternoon competing and enjoying the fellowship of the event. Participants assembled for a 12:30 start time, and after opening remarks, those in attendance hit the links in a shotgun start, where teams start at assigned holes throughout the course, completing the entire 18-hole course.
Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Neil Toeppe organized and helped direct this year’s outing and announced the 2014 Scholarship recipients from the senior class at Wauseon High School last May: Sarah Mull, Derrick Kamp, Samantha Norman, Martin Schaffner and Victoria Kreiner. Each scholarship recipient received a $1,000.00 contribution towards his or her continuing education. Executive Director Toeppe communicated to those in attendance sincere gratitude for their support stating “Because of your generosity and that of our members, the Chamber awarded scholarships to these students for their academic and personal excellence, and your contributions and generosity made this possible. Thank you for your support!”
Following this afternoon’s golf outing, the Chamber held a Steak Fry at the Wauseon VFW Post 7424, with the presentation of trophies from the golf outing, as well as drawings for prizes following the dinner.
Committee members Kristy Snyder, Tim Sepesy, Jessica Schultz, Cabe Cordy, and Doug Shaw were also instrumental in the golf outing’s success and contribution towards the day’s activities.
