The Elk Rapids Ladies Golf League is proud of their generous support of local charities. Each summer they choose a charity to sponsor and raise money from the league and club members. This year, Michael’s Place will receive the donations. On August 17th, Connie Witzinger and Robin Flannery, Michael’s Place representatives, came to the luncheon to give an overview of their organization.
Michael’s Place is located at 1212 Veteran’s Drive in Traverse City. Their mission is to provide a safe environment to enable healthy healing after the death of a loved one. They provide support for children, teens, and adults grieving a loss. Their services have on-site support groups, school support groups, and workplace grief and crisis counseling. They are nonprofit and do not charge for their services. If anyone is interested in learning more about Michael’s Place, visit mymichaelsplace.net.
Mother Nature dealt us our second golf day rain out for the season. While it was disappointing, no one complained a great deal since the rain was much needed. The ladies enjoyed some social time in the clubhouse instead. Deb Taylor, Linda Hoey, Doris Masserang, Lorraine Berak, Nancy Muhlig, Donna Reffitt, and Ruth Larson were the hostesses for the day providing a savory pasta salad lunch.
