Putt-Masters tourney set for May 31

May 31 marks the fourth annual Putt-Masters Tournament, the signature fundraiser that benefits the Franklin County Public Library. Some 20 plus businesses, groups, and individuals sponsor four-person teams, which tee off at noon and play throughout the afternoon. After the tourney ends at 5 p.m., there will be a ceremony to see who will take home Green Champ caps and a beautiful trophy. The competition is serious for some. Many returning teams have improved their "putt" over the years. Others just play for fun and enjoy good food, drink, and the company of friends.
