Golf classic raises funds for VAs
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

Committee members Merle Sagen and Dave Coalwell, both of the Detroit Lakes area, present a check to Jack Barrows of the Fargo VA Medical Facility for $4500 for hospitalized veterans comfort items and other needs.

The 7th annual veterans golf classic was held this summer at the Forest Hills Golf Course and the funds raised came from golfer's registrations, business hole sponsorships and donated silent auction items.

Golfers came from all across the upper Midwest, and all of the local veteran's organizations helped in coordination the event. Committee members look forward to an even better tournament next year.
