Barnesville Hospital Auxiliary Golf Scramble a success

The 7th Annual Barnesville Hospital Auxiliary Golf Scramble was held on August 10 at Belmont Hills Country Club. One-hundred and two golfers participated in the event that has become one of the premier golf events in the Valley.

The golf scramble would not have been possible without the numerous volunteers. Hospital employees, Auxiliary members, and other volunteers contributed numerous hours throughout the day to keep the event running smoothly. Performing tasks such as registration to providing refreshments, their hard work should be commended in making this
