LDAC 2018 Golf Outing
The Lumber Dealer’s of Connecticut (LDAC) held their annual golf outing on Wednesday, June 6th at Oxford Greens with over 100 folks attending.
It was not just a typical golf outing that day as there was a most unusual event that took place.
NRLA member and Builders First Source employee Mark Lefsyk, leapt into action when a golf course employee’s dog began to drown in a pond on the course. Mark immediately jumped into a pond to rescue the struggling dog and found himself up to his neck in muddy water. After getting the pet onto the banks of the pond, Mark began resuscitation efforts. Within seconds the dog exhaled water and started breathing on its own. Mark had saved the dog, and continued golfing! Later we learned it was the Golf Pro’s dog, and there was a grateful and emotional exchange afterwards.
Later in the day, attendees enjoyed a raw bar of oyster, crab legs and shrimp, followed by dinner. Several prizes and raffles were awarded.
There were 2 Longest Drive: Gary Guilmette (C.A. Smith Lumber) and Marylee Murgo (Tri-Lift Inc.) There were 2 separates Closest to the Pin: Dave Baldino (Boston Cedar), and Chad Overbaugh (Herrington’s).
It was a scramble play with First Place awarded to team: Charlie Smith (BROSCO), Kevin Amanna (Preferred Marketing Associates.), John Niland and Eric Verikas (Woodbury Supply Co.).
Second Place went to team: Joe Siemon (Hood Distribution), John Dvorsky and Brian Morrison (Ring’s End).
