To the editor:
I wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the many individuals and businesses that supported the recent Alden Pines Golf Scramble to benefit the FISH organization. Support of the event helps our organization to provide assistance to in-need island families and children in this holiday season and beyond.
We cannot thank Jan Egberts, Phyllis and Bill Dowd, Jeanne Glenn and all the other volunteers enough for organizing this event on our behalf. In addition, there were many volunteers who made food for the dinner, donated raffle prizes and played in the tournament; thanks as always for your dedication. I would like to recognize a long list of generous businesses as well as some individuals for their contributions to the event.
