Birdies for Bookworms Golf Scramble Held at Bluffton

Golfers receive instructions before the golf scramble

Teams of golfers "teed" it up in the "Birdies for Bookworms Golf Scramble" on Saturday, June 4. Held on the beautifully groomed Bluffton Golf Club and sponsored by the Friends of the Bluffton Public Library, the event raised money to help offset significant reductions in state funding.

Following the round of golf and several proximity contests on the course, everyone enjoyed dinner and the distribution of door prizes. Local resident Oscar Velasquez also provided musical entertainment during the meal.
