Urbana Lions to hold golf scramble Sept. 21

The Urbana Lions Club is holding their third annual Golf Scramble on Sept. 21 at Waldo's Golf Course in memory of three Lions Club members who died this past year, Dallas Baer who loved playing golf, Jim Wilson, who supported Lions activities whenever possible, and life member Bob Frieden.

The first 48 players to sign up will receive a sleeve of golf balls from the Urbana Lions Club and a Colts golf towel and Colts visor from Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance - Ron Baer. Proceeds this year will help fund the Vanessa Baer and the Wilbur Dawes Scholarships for Northfield students. Proceeds will also help with other Lions projects, such as dictionaries for 3rd grade Metro North students, free eye screening for preschool children in Wabash County, help with upkeep and improvements to the Urbana ball field and the Urbana Community Building for use by individuals and groups in the Urbana community and in Wabash County, ECHO car racing for youth, help for blind and visually impaired, help in providing eyeglasses and hearing aids, supporting the Cancer control facility at the IU Medical Center, and diabetes and law camp for students.

There will be a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Teams of four or individuals can sign up. Prizes will be given for a putting contest, longest drive, and closest to the hole as well as first and second prize for lowest scores. The registration fee includes rolls and drinks before, free gifts for first 48 to sign up, and ends with lunch. The Urbana Lions Club likes to have as many youth participate as possible. Last year, they had three student teams who played at no cost to them but were sponsored by Lions members who don't golf. If you don't play golf and would like pay the registration fee for an individual or team, it would be greatly appreciated.

To sign up contact either Mary Ann Mast at 260-377-9475 or Joe Adams at 260-782-2552. Reservations and/or questions can also be emailed to or
