The Imagination Library Golf Outing needs golfers!

This is the first fundraising event for the Clinton County program that sends a free book monthly to preschool children. The county organization is an affiliate of the Dollie Parton Foundation that organizes a graduated reading plan for babies to the first day of kindergarten.

The golf scramble is planned for the 797 Elks Golf Course in Wilmington Saturday, April 17 at 9 a.m. Golf, cart and lunch is $75/player. Raffle and mulligan packages available.

The event is sponsored by the Farm Bureau and Wilmington College’s Sigma Epsilon Sorority.

The outing needs golfers, as few have signed up for the event.

Contact Amanda Middleton at 937-382-4407 for more information.
