Milford Rotary Stories

Last year the 100 Holes Committee added The Madras Jacket award for the top golfer at 100 Holes. This year they instituted the 100 Holes Hall Of Fame as a way to recognize outstanding support and commitment to this event over the past 22 years and in the years to come. The first five inductees represent a wealth of inspiration and vision, community and player support, and fundraising dollars.
First to be recognized were the founders - Mike LaVallee and the late Ted Jordan who dreamed up this event and got the ball soaring. Fitz Fitzgerald was honored as the ONE golfer who has played in all 22 of the 100 Holes tournaments to date. Henniker Rotarian, Joe Clement, was honored for his many years of participation and for raising loads of money each year for the event. This year Joe raised $12,800 in raffle ticket sales! As Alec Buchanan noted in 2013, Joe has been participating in the 100 Holes of Golf tournament since the beginning. As a matter of fact, he has only missed a couple of years in the event's history - and that, according to Alec, was because we forgot to call him! The Amherst Country Club was awarded Hall Of Fame status for 22 years of dedicated collaboration. As many agreed, The ACC is the only place for this event!

Up next for the Milford Rotary Club is the 22nd annual 100 Holes of Golf in One Day tournament. On Friday July 29th, sixty-five golfers will play from dawn to dusk at the Amherst Country Club in their quest to complete 100 holes of golf in one day and raise loads of money for the Milford Rotary Club Foundation.
Funds are raised through sponsorships and the sale of raffle tickets @ $20 each with 10 chances to win part of the $12,500 cash prize pot with a top prize of $5000. Raffle tickets are available from any Milford Rotarian and there is still time to get in on the action by purchasing one or more. Each ticket includes valuable coupons like $20 off dinner at Giorgio's.
100 Holes golfers are treated like rock stars. They are supported throughout the day by a bevy of volunteers, are treated to lunch provided by Papa Joe's Humble Kitchen and The Flying Butcher, and are honored at a post-event banquet served by Giorgio's Ristorante.
Who will go home this year with the Ted Jordan award, the Callaway award and the coveted 100 Holes Madras Plaid Jacket?

The longest, continuously organized Rotary Swim Meet in the USA (if not the world)! This is not a "RINO" event, we don't just write a check! Milford Rotarians will be working this two-day event alongside a cadre of community volunteers, town staff members and swim team parents. Together we put on an awesome swim meet! Many thanks to our sponsors some of whom have been helping for decades!
