Milford Rotary Stories
We share this news with great sadness and a heavy heart.  The Milford Rotary Club has lost a very special member of our Rotary family.  Past President and Paul Harris Fellow Mel Reever passed away on September 13th. He leaves us with a vibrant tapestry of a life well lived - member of the Greatest Generation and U.S. Air Force veteran, avid skier and golfer, devoted family man, successful business owner,  dedicated Rotarian and, among many other accomplishments, a generous friend. Mel's gentle smile, sunny disposition and unique sense of humor will be deeply missed.  It's hard to imagine Rotary meetings without him. Let us keep Mel's family in all our thoughts and prayers. 
Memorial visiting hours are on Thursday, September 20th from 2:00-4:00 pm at the Smith & Heald Funeral Home, 63 Elm Street, Milford. A memorial service will be held on Friday, September 21st at 11:00 am in the Congregational Church of Amherst, 11 Church Street, Amherst, NH. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery, Milford, at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to The Milford Rotary Club Foundation.
According to team leader May Balsama, "It was a picture perfect day for a huge crowd of well into 2,000. More than last year! With the help of Allise de Smet and Al Hoyt we made it to the end with a little chili to spare. Lots of happy samplers of all ages! Al's home grown jalapeno peppers were a big hit!"
From the photos and emails, it looks like May and Richard Balsama, Al Hoyt, Peter Lyon, Doug Rupert, Tim Finan and the ever camera shy Allise & John S. had a great time. Of course Tim did some beer sampling - surely this was research for the Milford Pumpkin Festival Beer & Wine Tasting!!
Thank you May for taking the lead and organizing Milford Rotary's participation in this Henniker Rotary Club fundraising event!
Milford Rotarians and friends "fielded" a team for the annual CIGNA 5K in Manchester. Still wondering if Dr. Joe was contemplating a switch to the "younger" SNHU team .....  Great fun for a good cause!

The Milford Rotary Club extends many thanks to all of the sponsors, volunteers, players, and raffle ticket purchasers who helped ensure the success the 24th annual 100 Holes of Golf in One Day Tournament.

For the first time in 100 Holes history, the  Course Marshall and Officials had to call an end to the Tournament  before the 100th hole. A severe storm  rolled in around 6:45 pm and the course was cleared - rapidly! The monsoon like wind and rain even took out the Officials Tent. Final scoring for the tournament was based on four (4) completed rounds.
