The 10th Annual SLS Golf Tournament

Saturday, June 17th

Triggs Memorial Golf Course in Providence

(NEW VENUE!) 

 

After many years at Swansea Country Club, we've decided to move this awesome event to Triggs Memorial Golf Course in Providence, RI.  Additionally, in light of the busy month of May (communions, graduations, etc.), we decided to move this to a later date (June 17th) so that more golfers are available.

 

We hope you can come join us for a day of fun, food, and great golf! 

 

Please consider registering a foursome or sponsoring a tee sign.  This tournament is our second largest fundraiser and the money raised at this event has helped to provide field trips, technology and classroom presentations. 

 

Contact event co-chairs Kathie Rietheimer (krietheimer@hotmail.com) or Jen Clark (jlw314@msn.com) if you are interested in participating, sponsoring or volunteering. 

 

Thank you for supporting SLS!!!

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION:  Thank you for helping us fill the Bin!  The next Popcorn Day will be free! 

 
Don't forget to keep on clipping!  For those that don't know, Box Tops can be found on various supermarket products and can be cut out and sent into school.  This is an easy way to generate money for our school!  SLS receives 5 cents for every box top submitted (last year we raised over $1,000!).  You can send your box tops in with your child in a zip lock or envelope or place them in the Box Tops bin located on the first floor across from the statue of Mary.
