OGWA to host golf event, awards fundraiser
Strathroy, Ont. – The Ontario Ground Water Association will host its second annual golf tournament Sept. 21 to raise funds for annual scholarship awards for graduates of Fleming College’s resources drilling and blasting program.
The aim is to raise funds that can be held in an interest-earning account to be dispersed each year to the recipients at its annual convention, the OGWA said in a news release.
“It is important to recognize the academic achievements, year to year, of deserving students and welcome them into the ground water community,” said Paul Conrad of the association’s board of directors.
Registration includes a barbecue lunch on the patio, a chicken and beef full-course dinner, golf with a cart in an 18-hole scramble format, a silent auction, contests and prizes.
Those who can’t attend can still help support the industry’s next generation by making a donation through the association. Funds earmarked for the scholarship will be set aside for this purpose.
