October 18, 2003 - John Hockman
Memorial Golf Outing A Success
Over $1500 raised for the Massachusetts' 21st District Masonic Angel Funds
Dear friend of the Masonic Angel Fund:
Saturday, October 18th saw another great success for York Rite's work on behalf of the seven Masonic Angel Funds in the 21st Masonic District. Chris Whichard (second in command at Sylvester Baxter Royal Arch Chapter and presiding Master of Universal Lodge) and Don Haden (Past High Priest of SBRAC and Past Master of UL) did themselves proud with the fourth annual John Hockman Memorial Golf Outing.
Golf commenced at 12 noon under cool, cloudy skies. The golf tournament was held again this year at the scenic Chequessett Yacht and Country Club in Wellfleet. The Chequessett is one of the most stunningly scenic golf courses on Cape Cod with breath-taking views of Cape Cod Bay from much of the course. The facility works with us each year to provide golf at the lowest possible price so that more of the proceeds can go to the Masonic Angel Foundation's matching grant fund.
By 5:30 all were nestled in the warm fellowship of Bellamy's restaurant at the Four Points Sheraton hotel in North Eastham. Food & Beverage Manager and Brother Steve Golden and his staff provided a sumptuous Italian dinner buffet and spirits to dispel the autumnal chills for which Cape Cod is so well known. Brother Golden is consistently one of the strongest supporters of the Masonic Angel Fund since its establishment some five years ago.
Awards were given to the players for various scores and for distinctive achievements on the course. All awards were donated by local golf emporia. Profits from this event are donated by Sylvester Baxter Royal Arch Chapter to the Masonic Angel Foundation, Inc. for distribution as matching grants to the seven Masonic Angel Funds in the 21st Masonic District.
Regards to all,
Bob Fellows/Masonic Angel Foundation, Inc.
