News from Dunany Juniors

Dunany juniors have been keeping busy.  Last Tuesday sports night was rained out so the fun moved indoors.  Randy Swedberg has been volunteering each Tuesday for several years.  He has many fun ideas, the kids are grateful and are now hoping for another rainy Tuesday night! The annual fun-filled family sports day was held under sunny skies.  A great time was had by all.  Many thanks to Warren Neill & family for coordinating and to many who helped with food prep and logistics.  Meanwhile, in golf news... our pro, Marc Barbeau, has been away due to illness so our juniors have been soaking up tips provided by some of our members.  Special thanks to Alan Morton, Jeff Best, Francois Côté, Gilbert Boucher, Barbara Campbell, Annie Hay and Tracy Wightman. 
There is a Junior Facebook group dedicated to news and announcements. If you'd like to join this group click the link and send your request: https://www.facebook.com/groups/624764974356566/
