Seymour Evening Lions Club announces golf scramble results

The Seymour Evening Lions Club recently released the results of its annual golf scramble held Aug. 27 at Shadowood Golf Course in Seymour.

The team of Ruel West, Jim Doolan, Jan Graves and Mick Vale finished first, followed by the team of Ray Eakins, Ryan Eakins, Reagan Eakins and Jeff Axsom.

Ray Eakins won the closest to the pin contest; Doolan took the longest drive contest; Ryan Eakins made the longest putt; and the putting green closest to the pin contest was captured by Ethan Banister, who holed the putt.

Forty-three businesses and organizations sponsored individual holes on the course, adding to the funds raised for Lions projects in the community.

Those funds support local Lions Club projects, which include the Boys and Girls Club of Seymour, Child Care Network, Community Provisions of Jackson County, Anchor House Family Assistance Center and Pantry, The Alley and others. The club also supports Lions of Indiana projects that help preserve sight and hearing and cancer research at Indiana University Health Indianapolis.

A meal was served to all participants upon completion of the tournament, and a number of local organizations donated door prizes, which were awarded when play was completed. A special door prize of an airplane tour of Jackson County, donated by a club member, was won by Stephanee Roberts.

The club was chartered in 1925 and for 97 years has provided many services to the city of Seymour. The goal of the club is to continue to live up to its motto, “We Serve.”
