SHEFFIELD PLACE CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT
A first annual charity golf tournament will be held this Saturday the 17th at the Sherwood Forest par 3 golf course. Proceeds will go to the Western NC Down Syndrome Alliance. The tournament will be held at the Sherwood Forest Golf Club at 29 Cardinal Road 15 minutes southeast of Brevard off highway 276 (Greenville Hwy). Matt Kuchar, golf pro, has donated two signed hats and a signed Master's flag to raffle off. There will be a multitude of other prizes donated by local businesses.
To book a tee time call 828-884-7825
Morning tee times are from 9 am to 11 am. This session is designated for individual low gross with prizes for closest to the pins. Afternoon tee times are 12 pm – 2 pm. This is a two-person scramble also with prizes for low gross and closest to the pins.
The entry fee is $40 and Mulligans can be purchased at $5 each with a limit of 2 per golfer. For those (like me) who don’t know, a mulligan is a stroke in golf that is played from the same spot that a player hit their previous stroke, looking to re-do the prior shot without penalty. In other words, golfers use mulligans to wipe out the previous shot and consider it to have never counted.
The Warrior video that was reproduced by the UU Church will air during the service on April 18th at 10 am. It will go up on YouTube that same day at 11 am. The service was designed around the music to celebrate the power of women. Tune in.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Young
A couple of weeks ago my honey and I decided to move the potted plants from my secret garden to the side entryway to the house. This was in preparation for an addition to be constructed on the site. We have since decided to postpone the addition but the plants seem to appreciate the move and are doing beautifully. My mossary and garden will now center around the side entrance to the house. The only worry is the potted Hostas. The deer think they are delicious.
Happy birthday to my beautiful granddaughter, Alayna Youngwolf. She turned 22 on April 13th. Seems like only yesterday that she was a cute little baby.
