Helping out a good cause – Day 243

This morning I managed to get up a little earlier so I had more time to spend on the little fall landscape painting. I’m still working on the rocks in the foreground but they’re starting to take shape.

I went to work for a few hours before heading out to the Lindsay Golf & Country Club for the annual Emergency Services Golf Tournament. I’ve been on the committee for 4 or 5 years and the tournament is a fundraiser for the Kawartha Lakes Food Source.

Every year I help with registration and sell 50/50 tickets. This year we added a putting contest so I ran that. I hung out on the putting green waiting for teams to come by, sitting in the sun and enjoying the day. $5 bought 3 balls to putt at the contest board. If the ball went through one of the holes they got the score for that hole – the highest score for the day won half the money from the contest. It ended up in a three-way tie so we had a putt off and the winner walked away with $265.

Overall the day raised in excess of $7000 for the Food Source and I was glad to do my part! Here’s the view from where I was.
