The 4th Annual Support Our Troops Golf Tournament raised $6,000. The charitable event was held on Aug. 11 at the Petawawa Golf Club and All Ranks Service Club with proceeds going to help members of the Canadian Armed Forces; Support Our Troops Fund donations are dispersed through the Military Families Fund, Soldier On, Hospital Comforts Fund and the Canadian Forces Personnel Assistance Fund. Through the original game and a silent auction, the 80 players initially raised $5,000. However, Bill, Andy and Mike Kuntz put in an additional $1,000 to bring the final tally to $6,000. On hand for the cheque presentation were (left to right) Co-Captain Gerry Leblanc, Garrison Petawawa Formation Sergeant Major Chief Warrant Officer Bill Richards, Support Manager at Lockheed Martin Terry Amirault, Hospitality Coordinator Karin Cotey, Garrison Petawawa Deputy Commander Lieutenant Colonel Scott Campbell and Co-Captain Rod Gallant.
