Shriners golf tourney called a success
Placeholder Image
Editor, The Hinesville/Fort Stewart Shrine Club’s 22nd annual Golf Tournament hosted Sept. 8 at the Cherokee Rose Country Club was a great success thanks to the faithful support of our community businesses.
This year’s tournament was more exciting than ever when one of our players, Leroy Strickland, made a hole-in-one and won a new Grand Vitara Suzuki sponsored by Liberty Suzuki. Leroy says he just can’t quit smiling. Bet if you ask him if he was smiling because of the hole-in-one or the car, he would say both. Congratulations again Leroy. We are all very happy for you.
We would like to thank all the teams and players. Plus we would like to recognize and thank all the hole sponsors and those who made gift donations. Not all players won a car but they did receive a gift and enjoyed a good fried chicken dinner served by some of the Shriners’ wives. Thanks ladies for your support and always being there to help. You are all greatly appreciated.

If I have missed anybody I sincerely apologize.
The Nobles of the Mystic Shrine engage in various activities throughout the year  — parades, fundraisers, paper sales, etc,. — all aimed at providing better service for our crippled and burned children.
The Shriners of North America opened their first hospital in 1922. We now operate 22 — 18 orthopedic hospitals, three burn hospitals and one hospital that provides orthopedic, burn and spinal cord injury care.
All care provided at Shriner  Hospital is totally without charge to the patient and family. Our 2006 Shrine  Hospital budget was $625 million; and the money comes from gifts, bequests, income from the endowment fund, hospital fundraising events and the annual hospital assessment paid by every Shriner.
The Hinesville / Fort Stewart Shrine Club has two fundraisers each year, including our annual golf tournament and a beauty pageant, where proceeds are used for our local operating expenses. All other fundraisers go to the hospital fund.
Thank you again for your support.
“No man stands so tall, as when he stoops to help a crippled or burned child.”

Jim Williams, president
Albert Nelson Jr.  Committee chairman
