LMS Golf Tournament for April 30 Rained Out

See you next year on April 29, 2015!

With heavy rains already producing flooding on Tuesday, the day before the golf tournament, the Conestoga Country Club would be unplayable even if heavy rain were not predicted for Wednesday as well. As it is, the two days are a total wash-out and the tournament has been cancelled. The tournament will be held next year on April 29, 2015. April showers bring May flowers!

Original news release:

As spring draws near, students and staff at Lancaster Mennonite School are busily preparing for the school’s annual golf tournament. This year’s tournament will be held on Wednesday, April 30 at Conestoga Country Club, 1950 Stone Mill Road, Lancaster.

The event will include morning and afternoon four-person scrambles with a catered meal, provided by Hess’s Barbecue Catering, and prizes at the school’s New Danville campus after each round.

The morning shotgun begins at 7:30 a.m. and the afternoon round will begin at 1 p.m.

In addition to the meal, the $95 golfer fee includes greens fees, cart and either breakfast before the morning round or a snack before the afternoon round. Golfers also have the opportunity to purchase mulligans.

Team, individual skill and door prizes will be awarded after each round. Awards will be given to top men, senior men, women and mixed foursomes.

The tournament benefits Lancaster Mennonite School’s annual fund, which enhances the school’s educational programs and provides for student scholarships and financial aid. The event began more than 20 years ago as a student council project and has grown ever since. Last year’s tournament brought in about $40,000. Lancaster Mennonite School serves 1,500 students from prekindergarten through grade 12 at four campuses.
