Thank you to the players, sponsors and volunteers who made the annual Friends of Middlebury Hockey golf tournament a rousing success! Friends and families from throughout our community enjoyed a beautiful morning at Neshobe Golf Course, lost a few golf balls, and raised funds to help support youth hockey in Addison county. This year’s tournament was particularly exciting due to some sharpshooting by Arnie Bartlett, who won the $15,000 Paquette Inc. hole-in-one challenge!
