Lions Club Tournament
The Fairhope Lions Club held their 15th annual golf tournament on October 3, 2021 at Quail Creek Golf Course.
An Anonymous person donated $500.00 to the Fairhope Lions with the provision that the money be used for the tournament in remembrance of fallen police officers of 2021. This generous donation included a paid foursome to the tournament and a banner to be displayed at the golf outing listing the names of several officers who have died this year. The Lions Club graciously asked the Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge 43, if they would like to honor these officers by entering a team to play in the tournament.
I’m FOP Lodge 43 Secretary, Greg Duck, State Representative, Gerald Thorton, along with associate members, Sean Sullivan and George Wilson were able to play a very pleasant round of golf on Sunday, October 3. While the team did not win any trophies they did get to meet a number of civic minded folks and enjoy a tasty lunch supplied by Publix.
Thank you to both the anonymous donor (who gave the banner to Lodge 43 for display) and the Fairhope Lions Club for all the good work that they do.
