Golf outing raises funds for schools

Kaneland Foundation invites community members to event
by Keith Beebe
KANELAND—Looking for a great excuse to hit the golf links before fall starts? If so, then you’re in luck, as the Kaneland Foundation will hold its annual golf outing and dinner on Thursday, Sept. 16, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Bliss Creek Golf Course.

The Kaneland Foundation encourages community members to take park in the golf outing, a fundraiser that has taken place every year since 1990. People can even choose to skip the golf and just enjoy the dinner if their short game isn’t up to snuff. And if anyone has difficulty putting together a foursome, the folks at Bliss Creek will be happy to pair you up with others attending the event.

“We are hoping to have 80 to 100 golfers attend, and a few more usually attend the dinner,” event organizer Chuck Liss said. “Any level of (golf) skill can play. (The event) is set up as a golf scramble, so skill level doesn’t really matter.”

So far, approximately 45 people have signed up and paid to participate in the outing, Kaneland Superintendent Jeff Schuler said.

“Hopefully that number will increase through this week (with) additional registrations,” Schuler said.

The Kaneland golf outing typically raises $10,000 each year, Liss said. The Kaneland Foundation in the past has spent profits from the golf outing on things such as an elementary school field trip to a retirement community, the opening of the elementary school library, scales and balances for the Harter Middle School science curriculum and high-school peer tutoring supervision. The Foundation has not determined for what purpose it will use the proceeds from this year’s golf outing.

Letter: Sean Michels will make a difference

I was excited to hear that Sean Michels, candidate for state senator, is supported by my village president, Dave Anderson.

I found out that Sean has the support of a number of mayors: Jeff Schielke of Batavia, Kevin Burns of Geneva, Don DeWitte of St. Charles, Marilyn Michelini of Montgomery, Debbie Washburn of Virgil, and Valerie Burd of Yorkville.

Sean also has the support of retired state Rep. Patricia Reid Lindner, retired County Board Chairman John Church and retired Illinois Supreme Court Justice John Nickels. They are all tired of the same old talk and no action. Each of them want a state senator that will be a voice for our area.

Vote for Sean Michels for state senator, he will work with elected officials to make a difference in the area.
