Good Morning Brothers and Sisters,
We are hoping by now you have all received the flier regarding the JO Memorial Cup Fall Golf Classic scheduled for October 1st 2018. This outing is not new just renamed in JOs honor. Many of you will remember the golf outings that JO ran up at the “Carvel” course and then at Centennial golf club in Carmel. These golf outings where at the top of JOs list of favorite events, right up there with the Pig Roast. Not only did the Lodge raise a significant amount of money for our target charities but it brought together the membership for a day full of comradery and great fun in the sun. We have attended several of these events and they were always well attended.
After Jimmy’s untimely passing we discussed this idea of bringing back the golf outing and after careful consideration, We the EBOD at FOP lodge #704 with the blessing of both the O’Neill and Driscoll families are now prepared to host The 1st annual “JO Memorial Cup” to be held at Putnam Golf course (See attached flier for details). This event will benefit both the L/E community as well as the Veterans of Putnam County and our High School Scholarship fund.
We have reached out to our Brothers and Sisters at the NY Shields, and the NYPD SBA, PBA, DEA, etc. in an effort to make this event a huge success. We have no doubt we will succeed but we need your help! Participation is key here, in any way shape or form. There are several ways to contribute monetarily, however any contribution made no matter how small will go towards the overall effort and would be appreciated. Of course we would love to have you physically present at the course but we understand the logistical problems being raised by a Monday event. That being said we have but one more request, Please! Please! forward this flier to your friends and family or perhaps you have a golf group that may be interested in attending. Lastly you DO NOT have to play golf, you can simply come on over to the course and join us at the late lunch BBQ on the 19th hole patio.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a printable copy of the flier.
