On September 19, 2015, Local 2069 put together a hog roast and disc golf tournament to raise money for Guide Dogs of America. Even though the beginning of that Saturday morning was chilled and a bit damp, several people from around north central Indiana showed up for the event. The disc golf tournament held at Maconaquah Park in Peru, was won by one of our own members, brother Troy Malott and Dave Prather. Both Troy and Dave donated their winnings to the Guide Dogs charity. Dave also won closest to pin, and the other closest to pin winner was Seth Clarson.
The weather broke while golfers were finishing, and the food began to be served to an abundance of people craving some pulled pork and Coney dogs. Several raffles for baked goods and an IAM quilt (hand crafted by sister Tina Collins) commenced as everyone ate a delicious meal.
With the help of the community and IAM Local 2069, the total money donated to Guide Dogs of America was over $4,000 dollars. Thank you to everyone who attended and who donated their time and money to such a wonderful cause. Let’s make it even bigger and better next year!
