AND, SO WE'RE HERE TODAY TO TALK ABOUT OURANNUAL GOLF TOURNAMENT, WHICH COMES UP IN AUGUST. WE ARE REALLYPUSHING IT THIS YEAR BECAUSE, UNFORTUNATELY, WE HAVE DECIDED TOCANCEL OUR PANCAKE DAY, TOO MANY, TOO MANY LOGISTICS AND TOO MANYUNKNOWNS. NOW WE WILL PROBABLY DO SOMETHING STILL FOR PANCAKE DAY INSEPTEMBER, WHICH IS OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISER, BUT WE'RE SHIFTING OURFOCUS THIS YEAR TO THE GOLF TOURNAMENT, TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THECOMMUNITY.

PEOPLE WANT TO HELP KIWANIS. THIS IS THEIR BIGOPPORTUNITY, IS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE GOLF TOURNAMENT, IS THISCORRECT? SO WHEN IS THE GOLF TOURNAMENT HAPPENING?

IT ISAUGUST 28TH AT DALTON RANCH. BEAUTIFUL. WITH A NINE O'CLOCK START,BUT WE WANT YOU THERE AT EIGHT. OKAY. AND YOU WANT ME TO RUN DOWNTHROUGH THE . . .

TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT. YEAH. TELL USA LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT.

SO AGAIN, IT'S GOING TO BE AUGUST28TH, WHICH IS A FRIDAY. IT'S A FOUR=PERSON SCRAMBLE A TEE START ATNINE. ALL THE SOCIAL DISTANCING IS ALREADY IN PLACE. MORE THANLIKELY, WE'LL GO OUT ONE AT A TIME RATHER THAN AS, AS A TEAM, BUT THEGREEN FEES ARE $125 EACH, UNLESS YOU'RE A MEMBER OF DALTON, THEN IT'SONLY $75. A TEAM OF FOUR IS $500. OR IF YOU DON'T PLAY GOLF AND WANTTO HELP SUPPORT US, WE ARE LOOKING FOR TEE BOX SPONSORS AND THOSE RUNFOR $250 APIECE. SO THAT'S WHERE YOU GET, SO, YOU KNOW, A LITTLE SIGNPUT UP AT EACH TEE AT A PARTICULAR TABLE AND WE CAN TAKE AS MANY OFTHOSE AS WE CAN GET.

OKAY, GREAT. SO LOOKING FOR PEOPLE THATWANT TO PLAY GOLF AND ALSO JUST IN GENERAL, SPONSORS. IT'S FANTASTIC.SO WITH OUR SAFER AT HOME REGULATIONS IN PLACE, HOW IS KIWANIS CLUBSTILL SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY? CAUSE I CAN IMAGINE THAT THERE ISSTILL A NEED. IN FACT, I'M GUESSING THE NEED IS GREATER.

YES.AND I THINK IT'LL ONLY GET GREATER, DEPENDING ON WHAT HAPPENS HERETHIS FALL, BUT WE ARE STILL HELPING THE COMMUNITY OUT. WE DID A BIGDONATION TO THE FOOD BANK IN DOLLARS. ANY ORGANIZATION THAT CAN PUTFUNDS TO USE, WE'RE HERE TO SUPPORT THEM, AS LONG AS THEY SUPPORT THEKIDS IN THE COMMUNITY. OKAY.


SO WITH KIWANIS BEING SOIMPORTANT TO SUPPORTING THE CHILDREN OF THE DURANGO COMMUNITY, WEREALLY WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT THIS FUNDRAISER, RIGHT? BECAUSE YOUGUYS ARE STILL SUPPORTING THEM, YOU KNOW, DURING THE PANDEMIC. AND,IF SOMEBODY WANTED TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION OR GET SIGNED UP, HOWDO THEY DO THAT?
