SALEM- The Salem Golf Club Women’s Association on behalf of the Salem Golf Club is announcing their Second Annual Police and Firefighters’ Golf Benefit on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Invitations were sent to police and fire departments in Mahoning and Columbiana counties. The event, which is in appreciation for officers and firefighters, hosted 11 teams last year and this year they have a full field of 21 teams.

The officers and firefighters can expect to receive lunch at 11:30 a.m. followed by a 1 p.m. shotgun start (four-person scramble), followed by awards and dinner. Mostly what the participants can expect, is a very fun day filled with appreciation for all they do for our communities.

Through additional sponsorships and contributions, a fund has been established at the Salem Community Foundation for all Police and Fire Departments that participate in the Golf Outing. They are eligible, by means of their participation, to apply for funds that can be used for educational needs, special equipment needs for their safety and protection, as well as safety and protection for the public.

Donations may be made to The SGCWA/Police & Firefighters Golf Benefit Fund, The Salem Golf Club, Post Office Box 586, Salem Ohio 44460. Thank you in advance for your support of our men and women in our communities who risk their lives every day. Through their good judgment, quick thinking and their unselfish care for the people in our communities they make it a stronger, safer, healthier place to work, play and raise our families.
