Muncy’s Kiwanis Club, Historical Society
Announce 2012 “Muncy Cup” Winners
The Vintage Course at White Deer Public Golf Course was an ideal setting for this year’s co-sponsored 2012 Muncy Cup golf event. Muncy’s Historical Society and Kiwanis Club partner for the annual outing that helps both organizations achieve community-minded objectives: preserving local history and heritage for future generations and helping the young people of the community.
Receiving Muncy Cup flags and gift certificates were the first-place winning team (gross) of Gilbert Balliet, Matt Joy, T. C. Reynolds, and Steve Goodman, and the first-place winning team (net) Tom Ward, Travis Ward, Rick Quimby, and Bill Herman. Second-place gross winners were Dave Mayer, Dan Berninger, Kate Bower, and Jason Fisher and second-place net winners were Marilu Way, George Way, Dennis Mayer and Mike Cromis. Taking third place gross were Don Hendricks, Bill Yeagle, Bill Cyphers, and Brent Myers and third-place net winners were Bill Poulton, Richard Poulton, Ed Hannan and Mal Barlow.
Bill Herman, Don Hendricks, Matt Joy, T. C. Reynolds and Steve Goodman all had in-the-hole-putts which forced a contest playoff with Goodman’s putt inching out his competition. Dan Berninger won the men’s straightest drive, Bill Herman had longest drive, and Kate Bower had ladies longest drive.
Proceeds from the event benefit both the historical society in its quest to develop a Heritage Park and Nature Trail, a multi-year plan that is transforming an 11-acre section of Port Penn into a walking trail and hands-on history lesson, and the Muncy Area Kiwanis Club.
Located along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, the park is in an historical and environmentally region. The park will highlight Port Penn, a present-day commercial center and residential area that grew out of, and around, the bustling West Branch Canal industry of the 1800s. This year’s efforts will include a boat-building facility which will house a recently salvaged cargo boat removed by volunteers from the National Canal Museum in Easton.
The Kiwanis Club supports programs that benefit underprivileged youth, needy families and is a supporter of community-focused projects like the Heritage Park and Nature Trail. Both all-volunteer, not-for-profit organizations encourage and support a number of educational initiatives including special exhibits, living history programs, and scholarship awards for graduating seniors.
