Luginbuhl memorial scheduled

ATHENS, Ohio (May 19, 2004) -- The 1st Kyle P. Luginbuhl Memorial Golf Scramble, Hog Roast and Auction will held on Saturday, June 26, at Golf at Sugar Creek, Lima, Ohio. Proceeds from the event will benefit a scholarship fund that will annually support a Bluffton or area high school or college student interested in traveling abroad as an exchange student.

The Bluffton-Pandora Rotary Club, with assistance from the Lima Rotary, will award the scholarship.

The scramble, hog roast and auction are designed to create an enjoyable and lighthearted atmosphere for all participants. In keeping with that spirit, this event is not a contest; rather it is an opportunity for a relaxing and entertaining day of golf, fun and fellowship.

Registration forms are available at various Bluffton businesses and restaurants. Hog Roast tickets can be purchased at Greg?s Pharmacy in Bluffton, Ohio. For out-of-town, interested parties, registration forms and hog roast tickets can be obtained by e-mailing Cheryl Edie (Chidester) at pedie8@yahoo.com .

Kyle P. Luginbuhl was a 2001 Bluffton High School graduate who participated in baseball, basketball and football while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. He was on the homecoming court his senior year and was elected to give his class graduation speech.
