The golf outing is a great beginning to this two-day event, fun abounds on the links and, of course,  in the clubhouse. The putting contest sponsored by Allied Drycleaner Insurance Program agent Matt Cruise, of Robertson, Ryan and Associates, provides $200 in prize money along with many other prizes to be given away.

The Hampton Inn nearby will serve as the host hotel. The Hampton Inn shuttle service is available to hotel guests for transportation to and from the River Club, if you make arrangements in advance with the hotel.

There may even be some celebrity auctioneers for the annual WFI Auction at this year’s summer event. The theme this year will be The All-American Auction, as Independence Day falls the following week. Please join WFI as we celebrate our freedom with a little fun, fellowship, food and firecrackers!
