of cold, damp spring weather and an early June tropical
heat wave, the Milford Chapter’s 12th
Annual Red Cross Golf Classic took place on a
perfect golfing day – blue skies and comfortably warm
with a slight breeze.

Monday, June 2 to get their wake-up juice, coffee and
breakfast before teeing off for 18 holes of golf.
Snacks, fruit and plenty of liquids kept everyone going
until it was time to head to Aldario’s Restaurant for
the raw bar, the plentiful buffet spread, the awards
luncheon and raffle drawings which included prizes of
rounds of golf, dinners, overnights, theater tickets and
