As we all pause to thank our military veterans who protected this great nation and our freedoms, our golf organization was no different.

   More than half of all members of the Viera East Men’s Golf Association are military veterans.   Serving in all branches, ranks, deployments and from the Korean War to Vietnam and beyond, we thank all of the veterans for your service.

After our round of golf, Divots Restaurant was patriotically decorated to commemorate this important day of thanks and to remember those who served our country honorably.

On Oct. 26, the VEMA golf league played a two-man, best-ball handicapped event with two flights.

Gary Shiffrin and William Oakley won the first flight. Steve Wing and Bob David placed second and Guy Sullivan was third.

Dave Hogan and Ron Gonyea prevailed in the second flight. The team of Jack Webb and Glen Tarsha tied the team of Alan Pinette and David Hill for second place.

  Bob Draegar on No. 4, Bill Scholtens on No. 7, John McComas on No. 13 and William Oakley on No. 16 were closest-to-the-pin.
