For the second consecutive year, Somerset Country Club and members of Somerset County Veteran's organizations are looking forward to a great day of golf on Monday, May 21.
The veteran's groups have teamed up with Somerset Country Club to offer a free day of golf to Somerset County Veterans as a "Salute to Our Veterans."
Veterans pals can accompany them on a round of golf for $25.
"The response was tremendous last year," said Somerset Country Club golf pro John McGinnis. "The Club has already begun booking tee times. We are expecting at least 140 golfers."
The Somerset Jaycees will be operating a Canteen on the Clubhouse Porch offering hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch. Inco Beverage and Von's United Beverage are sponsoring the draft beer after the round of golf (or during if it will improve the game!).
"Somerset Country Club is proud to participate in this event," said Bill "Willi Joe" Aldom, Somerset Country Club's General Manager. "It's gratifying to see this kind of turnout. We welcome the public to come out and salute our veteran's too."
As an added tribute to the veterans, Von's United Beverage will be participating in Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch In Bev Wholesaler's program "Here's to the Heroes."
The program provides educational scholarships for dependants/families of fallen or disabled soldiers. The 2011 program raised more than $4 million nationally.
