SUBMITTED BY GREG WALKER, SPECIAL.

After weeks of thunderstorms and heavy rain, June 6 dawned overcast and misty. As the morning progressed, however, the mist burned off and the clouds dissipated to create perfect conditions for the Friends of St. Davids' first “Nine & Dine” golf and dinner event.

By tee-off time in the afternoon, the sky was clear, and the sun shone on 22 intrepid novice and experienced golfers at the St. Davids Golf Club.

After an afternoon of play and fun on the golf course, the players were joined by family and friends for dinner at Ravine Winery.

If the golf course was beautiful, nestled as it is just below the Niagara escarpment, the venue for dinner was spectacular. The 41 guests enjoyed a wonderful buffet dinner in Ravine’s big tent with an amazing view of the vineyard.

Paul Harber, Ravine’s proprietor, had presented four gift certificates to Friends of St Davids. These were raffled and the proceeds of $150 will be donated to the St. Davids LEOs to help them meet their goal of raising enough to pay for a second dog guide for a person with disabilities.

Friends of St. Davids is planning a “Porchetta in the Park” on June 23 and a further donation will be made to the LEOs after that event.
