The past couple of weeks, Braeden Burgess, Dylan Chase and Laura Wesselius were competing in the East Coast Junior Championship at the Bouctouche Golf Club (June 28-29); and the NB Junior Championship at Gage Golf Club (July 5-6-7). They all posted some great scores throughout the tournaments with Laura finishing 4th overall at the NB Junior Championship, which earned her a spot on Team NB for Golf Canada’s Junior Girl’s Canadian Championships. She’ll be heading to the Links of Penn Hills in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia August 2-5th!! Congrats Laura! PVG is proud of all of your accomplishments and your love of this great game!

Now we know why they needed to bring a shovel and garden gloves to Friday Fun Night!! on July 22nd. We had 45 shrubs very generously donated by friends Hart & Janice Kunze! These folks regularly participate in our FRIDAY FUN NIGHTS, so following the golf this past Friday evening, all of the evening’s golfers made quick work of Planting all of the shrubs in about 40 minutes!! HUGE thanks goes out for Hart & Janice and all of the participants for their help with the digging and planting. GREAT TEAM WORK!!
