The Brattleboro Rotary Club's 35th Annual Charity Golf Tournament is scheduled for Thursday, June 10, 2010, at the Brattleboro Country Club on Upper Dummerston Road. Proceeds from this year's tournament will benefit the Vernon Recreation Department Playground Restoration, the Boys and Girls Club of Brattleboro, and Rotary's Gateway Scholarships for graduating seniors at local high schools.
This year, in addition to the normal prizes for tournament winners, the Club will make a $1,000 contribution to Rotary International in the name of a visiting Rotary Club golf team with the lowest team score. Rotary teams from around the region are invited to put together a team consisting of one or more Rotarians and have the opportunity to designate a new Paul Harris Fellow, and have their Rotary Club's name engraved on the tournament trophy.

The public is invited to help support these local community projects by participating in the golf tournament either as a golfer or sponsor, or by donating an item for the silent auction. Registration and bag lunch for golfers will begin promptly at 11 a.m., followed by a shotgun start (scramble format) at noon. Dinner, prizes, the silent auction, and a raffle will be taking place at 6 p.m. The hole-in-one prize is a new Subaru!

Full teams are not required; the cost is $125 for an individual and $460 for a foursome.

The Brattleboro Rotary Club, celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, is an active community service club of about 90 members, who engage in community and human service projects locally and internationally. The club has weekly lunch meetings at 12:15 p.m. Thursday at the VFW Post on Black Mountain Road in Brattleboro.
