VCA 2019 Golf Day
Wednesday, September 4
Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Course

The VCA 2019 Golf Day was a tremendous success.  62 golfers (some for the first time) and an additional 31 for dinner.  Friends and neighbours shared laughter, comradery and a little healthy competition. Special thanks go out to Mary Taylor and Margie Churchill, the co-chairs of this event.

A big thank you to those making prize donations —  Billy Simkin and the NOTL Golf Course, the VCA Social Committee, Dave Antaya, Mary Taylor and Chris Mori (Bravo Niagara).

Volunteers at the ready

The Social Committee (Mary Taylor, Margie Churchill, Cindy Durdan, Heidi Brown, Cathy Saytar & Judy Huntington-Mackay) offer a big round of applause to our 7 volunteers – Merion Clement, Tina Clement, Rita Skelton, Luba Fraser for helping with promotion and registration; John & Fran Anderson for help with promotion and the putting contest; and Sue Henry for her hard work sending out numerous newsletters and reminders on our behalf, and for acting as photographer for the day.



And they’re off!




The Putting Contest!

The cheering for neighbours and friends could be heard down the block.  While Doug Klotz and Peter Falconer gave our Men’s Winner, Greg Taylor, a run for his money, no one came close to our Ladies’ Winner, Mary Taylor.  Perhaps next year the antique putter will be put into play a little earlier.
