End of summer signals plans for fall golf classic


August 27, 1999|By Peg Adamarczyk | Peg Adamarczyk,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

IT'S THE UNOFFICIAL end of summer -- and August won't even have ended -- when school buses begin to roll next week for thousands of county students. And it's not only back to school, but back to the sports, meetings and fund-raisers that have taken a break over the summer months.

Jenkins Memorial Church in Riviera Beach will be sponsoring its first fall golf classic Oct. 8 at Longview Golf Course in Baltimore County. The entry fee is $65. All golfers are welcomed.

Included are greens fees and cart, doughnuts and coffee from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., gifts, prizes, snacks, soft drinks, and an end-of-tournament luncheon featuring pit beef, ham, Italian sausage and salads.

Prizes will be awarded for closest to the pin on the 2nd, 5th and 11th holes; longest drive on the 3rd and 17th; and first, second and third prizes for lowest team scores.

And you should be so lucky as to make a hole in one on the 13th -- that's worth a new car.

Proceeds will benefit the church building fund.

Course on Christianity

St. Andrews Episcopal Church, 7859 Tick Neck Road, will kick off a 10-week Alpha course for those interested in learning more about Christianity, with a celebration dinner at 7 p.m. Sept. 10 in the church undercroft.

The course will get under way at 7 p.m. Sept. 17, with classes continuing Friday evenings through Nov. 19.

The Alpha course is nondenominational, intended for anyone who wants to investigate the Christian faith, said Jane Salvarola, its coordinator.

The course is free but a nominal donation will be asked for meals preceding classes.

Child care will be available during the course.
