Picture This: DBA Happenings
Dustin’ Off The Clubs
The sun glistened and the rain surrendered at the 2009 Seniors Golf Tournament, July 22, at The Homestead Golf Course in Lakewood. Twenty-one people participated in the tournament and enjoyed a lunch in the club house before hitting the course. Thank you to all the participants for making this year’s tournament a fun and memorable event.
