Golfers braved sub-freezing weather in late November to participate in a “Turkey Shoot for the Needy” at Musket Ridge Golf Club in Myersville, Md. Over 600 pounds of turkey was collected from participants that could then be donated to less fortunate families in time for Thanksgiving, through a local community action agency.
To help golfers warm up after the scramble-format tournament, Musket Ridge’s Executive Chef, Kyle Roberson, whipped up a special lunch of fresh homemade chili and hot biscuits.
As a newly minted United States citizen, David Swales, Managing Director of Affinity Management, which operates Musket Ridge, was especially impressed by the event and the hardiness displayed by the participants.
“After moving from the UK over a decade ago, I’ve been impressed by how much Americans help those in need, especially in tough times,” Swales said. “I’m delighted that Musket Ridge celebrated its seventh anniversary by helping families put a decent meal on their table, and I am proud to have participated as well.”
