Mix up the sisters place in the greatest golf
Sisters Jennifer and Jessica Mix of Diamond teamed up to finish fourth in the Girls U-14 division of the scramble event at the Reserve Run Golf Course in Poland, sponsored by the Greatest Junior Golf Tour.
The next tournament in the series will take place at Pine Lakes Golf Club on June 7 in Hubbard.
Golf raffle, outings benefit local first responders
The Portage County and Northeast Ohio Fire Departments often host golf outings to raise much-needed funds for department programs and equipment.
Many firefighters also spend their days away from duty participating in fire department outings, supporting fellow firefighters and paramedics.
Although golf is our family sport, many of our immediate and extended family are members of northeast Ohio departments, including our son, Rootstown Fire Department Captain Marty Jenior, his two sons , his nephews and many of our closest friends.
To that end, our daughter, Katie Jenior, Barrington Golf Club Manager and Instructor, raffled off a limited edition First Responder C-130 golf bag made by Sun Mountain to Barrington Golf Club members.
All supported the effort to purchase and distribute 100 dozen golf balls with the firefighter flag logo to area fire departments.
