Worlds Largest Golf Outing Flag Ceremony
On May 1st, Wilmington Lodge #307 joined forces with Rock Manor Golf Course as they hosted the World's Largest Golf Outing, this largest one-day golf tournament in the nation benefits veterans and the community. Proceeds from the golf outing went to The Fisher House, providing military families housing close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury, and Arnie’s Army investing in the well-being and development of our children and youth.
Wilmington Elks invited our member veterans, along with other Delaware veterans, to be honored at a pre-tournament flag ceremony. Secretary Candy Geise coordinated the event, bringing in the local high school’s Mount Pleasant H.S. JROTC color guard, commanded by Sergeant First Class Gonzalez, USA, Ret. to perform the flag ceremony.
Delaware veterans Bill Rash and Phil Hanavin added to the ranks of Wilmington Lodge veterans; James Braack, Brian Dougherty, David LePanne, Robert Morris, Jack Gleason (PER), and Artillio DiAndrea, the oldest veteran, having served under General Patton in WWII, attended the ceremony. Afterward, the veterans and their guests joined the color guard for a complimentary breakfast at the Rock Manor clubhouse. The group answered the young men’s questions and shared their stories. As Mr. Morris commented, the flag ceremony was an “excellent idea and was very well appreciated.”
