The Friends of Mike Arburr to hold golf tourney June 27

The Friends of Mike Arburr are hosting the 7th Annual Mike Arburr Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament on Wednesday, June 27 at Hawks Landing in Southington.

Arbur, in addition to being a former Terryville Police Officer, was an active volunteer in youth sports in the greater Bristol area for many years. He served as president of McCabe Waters Little League as well as many managerial and coaching positions with McCabe and The CT Titans Softball program. Unfortunately, Arburr passed away in 2012 at a young age.

To honor his memory and his hours of volunteerism, his friends have established this event. Proceeds will be used to help promote local Little League programs, and other youth sports programs, as well as establishment of an annual scholarship through The CT Titans program. Over the past six years, the organization has donated over $55,000.00 to these programs.

Anyone wishing to sponsor or participate in the Golf Tournament should contact Rick at (860)-584-0491.
