The 21st Annual Dr. Maus Dawson-Boyd Community Scholarship Golf Tournament was held Friday, August 5th at the Dawson Golf Course. Nineteen teams were on hand to participate in this years’ Golf Tourney. The best-ball tournament is a fun family event that provides participants a number of opportunities to win prizes at each hole.
This year the team of Easton Popma, Christian Thoen, and Cameron Kemen took first place. Hole prize winners included Clayton Houff, Randy Kockelman, John Lee, Deb Farmen, Easton Popma, Roy Hinz, Cori Bothun and Christian Thoen. Almost everyone in attendance received a raffle prize, which were drawn at the end of the tourney.
