(6-22-18) The annual Esmonde/Homan Memorial Golf Outing was held on June 8 at the Mercer County Elks Golf Club to raise funds for The MED Foundation’s scholarship program. Since the inception of the program in 1992, the MED Foundation has awarded $260,000 to local graduating seniors furthering their education in a healthcare field.
Thirty-five teams of men, women and co-ed participants competed in this year’s event. The event began with a “golf ball drop” 50/50 drawing – the winning ticket was purchased by Patti Kremer of Coldwater.
