The fifth annual Mike Garrigan Golf “Fore” a Cure Memorial Tournament was held Aug. 9 at the Dutch Elm Golf course. The Garrigan family would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped to make this year our most successful yet. Our heartfelt thanks go out to Mike’s friends, family friends and all golfers that joined us for another beautiful day of golf.
