Help a student, help a Vet, help yourself! The Rotary Club of Concord’s 30thannual Thomas R. Huckins Memorial Golf Tournament June 25 at the Concord Country Club offers a chance for all three. 
Proceeds from the tournament will go to the Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle to underwrite scholarships for students entering or continuing college. As an affiliate organization of the Scholarship Fund, the Rotary Club has been donating $20,000 to the Fund annually, providing six or more students with needed financial support each year.
Through its affiliation with the Salute Military Golf Association (SMGA) Rotary sponsors disabled veterans to play in the tournament. SMGA’s mission is to provide rehabilitative golf programs, experiences, and family inclusive golf opportunities for those wounded or injured in post 9/11 military contingency operations, including those with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Rotary is seeking sponsors for these Vets who play alongside other golfers to enhance the experience of both. A donation of $250 will sponsor one Veteran to play.
Then there is the simple joy of spending a time on the links with friends. Registration is $250 and includes a full day at the Concord Country Club’s private course, 18 holes of golf, putting green warm-up, golf cart, lunch, clubhouse reception and dinner, tournament prizes and gifts, and refreshments. The shotgun start is at 1 p.m. preceded by registration and lunch from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Cocktails and dinner is at 6:30 p.m.
The tournament is off to a great start, thanks to our Platinum sponsors Deaconess Abundant Life, Emerson Hospital and Barrett Southeby’s International Realty (the Maurer/Widell Team) and Friend Sponsor Barrett Southeby’s .
