The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

The first Maple Street Church Golf Tournament benefiting the Danvers People-to-People Food Pantry was a great success. Dozens of golfers took part in the nine-hole event at the Rowley Country Club on June 30. Many local Danvers businesses and individuals generously sponsored tournament golf holes and donated raffle prizes. The Maple Street Church golf tournament committee greatly appreciated host Rowley Country Club’s efforts to make the event a success. Committee members were Bruce Billingham, Ken Blackadar, Larry and Judy Drouin, Paul and Donna Eovacious, Tom Manuel and the Rev. Kevin Smith. At the end of play, the golfers were treated to a delicious lunch prepared by Karen and Frank Kilty.
