Spots still available for St. Paul School golf scramble

SALEM — St. Paul School is still looking for golfers to help raise funds for school programming by playing in a scramble Saturday at Flying B Golf Course.

Principal David Pancurak said the golf outing is a big fundraiser for the school, which serves students in preschool through sixth grade from Salem and seven other districts in the surrounding area. The school has been around since 1904 and continues to focus on educating the mind, body and spirit of each student.

“At St. Paul School, students exceed state standards and achieve results in standardized test scores that are consistently higher than the national norms. Students have access to a state-of-the-art computer lab, extensive technology and after school programs,” a letter inviting school supporters to the golf outing said.

The price of $80 per golfer/$320 per team of four includes 18 holes of golf, cart rental, hot dogs at the turn, prizes and a luncheon at the course. The luncheon will include pulled pork and roasted chicken. Single golfers will be teamed up with others to make up a four-person team. Registration begins at 7 a.m., with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.

Pancurak said so many people and companies have agreed to sponsor holes or prizes to help out.

“We appreciate all their support,” he said.

All proceeds benefit the students. There’s also a luncheon only option for $15 at the golf course following the event.

For more information, Pancurak said to call the golf outing chairman, Brian Beck, at 330-692-6922.
