Larry Miller, chair of the Byesville Rotary Scholarship Golf Tournament, reported that during the 29 years the club has sponsored the golf scholarship tournament over 70 Meadow Brook graduates have benefited from the club’s scholarship program. To date the club’s annual Scholarship Golf tournament has raised almost $66,000 for scholarships.
Miller pointed out that community support of the golf tournament has been an important part of its success. This year the tournament will be held Sunday, May 3, at the Wildfire Golf Course in New Concord. Miller asked club members to help recruit sponsors and golfers who would like to join Byesville Rotary Club members in investing in the future of local young people.
For a $100.00 contribution, a company, organization, or individual can sponsor a hole at the event. Donations are not limited to cash. Prizes or gifts displaying a company's name are also appreciated. This event is the club’s only fund raiser for scholarships. All proceeds are directed to the scholarship fund.

Miller pointed out that this year the club is offering an “Early Bird Special.” Golfers who register by Saturday, April 24 will get a $5.00 discount per golfer.
