Fund-raising tournament in Andes
The Pete Wright Memorial Horseshoe Tournament will be held on May 30 at 1 p.m. at Weathertite Barn in Andes. Parking can be found on Main Street or at the school.
This tournament is in its seventh year. Each year the Delaware Horseshoe League raises approximately $500 and gives the money to a nonfunded youth group from an area school. All money is donated in memory of Pete Wright, a forefather of the Delaware League. Tribute is given to all our deceased members. Past recipients have been Andes Central School Pee Wee Baseball Program, Andes Girls Basketball Camp, Mar-garetville Central School Science Research Project, Margaretville Youth Soccer Program, Fleischmanns Youth Soccer Program and Margaretville Ice Skating Rink Program. This year’s recipient is Stamford Central School Ski Team; the team’s 10 members and volunteer coaches, Bill and Jen Boyle. The team is a nonfunded group. Last year two members participated in State Finals at Bristle Slope, bringing recognition to the area school.
Donations to the cause are greatly appreciated and can be made by calling 676-4912 or stopping by the day of the tournament. The league will furnish hamburgers and hot dogs during the afternoon. All are welcome.
