A great day at Southington Country Club!...

The Rotary Club of Southington would like to thank our sponsors and golfers (a full field!) for supporting the 9th Annual William S. Thomson Golf Scramble. With your help, we raised over $25,000 to be used for college scholarships, community needs and events, and Rotary International projects such as Polio Plus. We hope to meet you back here again next year!
