Golf tournament and fundraiser to be held

The Troy Area School District Foundation has announced that its tenth annual golf tournament and fundraising event will be held at the Towanda Country Club on June 20.

According to a news release:

The tournament is noted for its limited field and relatively short playing time. The many volunteers and the managers at the Towanda Country Club work to ensure that the tournament starts and finishes in a timely manner.

The format of a modified Florida Scramble makes the tournament fun and exciting for golfers of all skill levels.

The foundation expects nearly 100 golfers to participate at $100 per person with all of the proceeds to be used for increasing the foundation's endowment fund for scholarships, student loans and Troy Area School District curriculum and extra curricular enhancements.

Door prizes are awarded to all players, and there are golf skill prizes, raffles and tournament prizes as well.

For information about playing in the tournament or being a sponsor please contact Stacey Hussman at 570-297-1608 or Evan Williams Jr. at 570-297-2192.


Hanging baskets to arrive

The Troy Community Hospital Auxiliary hanging baskets will be delivered to the Davison Green on Friday, May 10, and pre-ordered flowers will be available for pick-up from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., according to a news release from the auxiliary.

In addition to the preordered baskets, there will be a few extra pots for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis.


Clarinet choir to perform

At 7 p.m. on May 10, the Troy Town Band's clarinet choir is performing a concert with Vinnie Mignano in the Troy Memorial Auditorium, according to a news release from Robert Oldroyd.

Mignano will be playing some solo pieces by Rachmaninov and the clarinet choir will be playing pieces by Holst, Grainger and Mancini.

The clarinet choir is led by Michelle Schlosser, a second-year graduate student at the Ithaca College. This is the first concert with one of the band's new conductors.

The concert is, of course, free but all donations will be graciously accepted for the Troy Town Band's instrument and scholarship funds.

The clarinet choir is composed of every kind of clarinet from the very high Eb sopranino down to the very low Bb contrabass clarinet.
