May 21, 2015 - William Schneider
On May 21st Branch 157 had our annual golf outing. This event occurs every year with the proceeds going to Muscular Dystrophy. Many stations throughout the city and the associate offices were well represented as there were 13 foursomes totaling 52 golfers. There were also numerous stations who took up collections and sponsored holes as well as individual hole sponsor. Geary Wertz (in true Geary fashion) came back from his retirement to run the event as always. Bill Schneider helped Geary organize and run the day. Special thanks to Renee Bar-Solomon and Nancy Konstance for taking annual leave and donating their time to the Branch to help throughout the day. The winners for the day were the Fox Chase representatives (Frank Woltemate, Jim Wallace, Gerry Nelson, Andy Tolen), The prize for closest to the pin was Charles Hutchinson from Bustleton station. The prize for the longest drive was Kevin Carlisle. In the end the real winners were the children with muscular dystrophy. Thanks to Geary Wertz, Bill Schneider and all who helped to run a successful event for MDA.
