Players tee-off at noon on June 25th at Basin Harbor Club

Middlebury, Vermont – May 4, 2009 – The Addison County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its 15th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament. The event will take place on Thursday, June 25th at the Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes. Participants will enjoy 18 holes of golf, lunch, pitching contest and an awards banquet at which the 2009 scholarship recipient will be recognized.

"The Addison County Chamber of Commerce Scholarship represents the single largest general scholarship awarded to students at the Hannaford Career Center.  In these tough economic times, it is vitally important to the students who receive it,” said Lynn Coale, Director, Hannaford Career Center.  “The students who have received the scholarship in the past have used it wisely and have become contributing members of their community. We at the Center would like to thank the members of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce for their continued support of this scholarship and the Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center."

J.P. Carrara & Sons returns again as the event’s major sponsor this year. Additional sponsorships, donations and participation in the annual tournament make it possible to fund $4,000 each year in scholarships to graduates of the Hannaford Career Center. Last year’s recipient was Travis Betourney, son of Kim and Keith Betourney of Bridport. Travis is attending Norwich University and studying computer and electrical engineering.

For more information on participating in the tournament, please call Ted Shambo at 388-7951 or email ted@addisoncounty.com.
