Polish Club golf tournament benefits VFW building fund

Staff Writer

A check presentation was held on Sunday afternoon at the site of the new VFW building. St. Joseph's Polish Society recently held its sixth annual golf tournament at Hemlock View Golf Course. The golf tournament consisted of 11 four-member teams. Participants were invited back to the Polish Club for dinner. Several local businesses from Punxsutawney and surrounding communities donated prizes or contributed to the overall total that was collected to give to the VFW Post 2076, the organization chosen this year by the board of directors of the Polish Club. The total raised from the tournament was $1,554.61. A grand total of $4,054.61 was presented to the VFW Post 2076 toward the new building project.
