Annual Event an Enjoyable Challenge, Meaningful Charity

MILTON – The Wynding Brook Golf Club was an ideal setting for this year’s Muncy Cup golf event. The annual tournament is one of Muncy Historical Society’s annual events, and helps the organization achieve community-minded objectives, such as preserving local history and heritage for future generations and developing the Heritage Park and Nature Trail.

Earning first-place honors went to the two-person team of Curtis Reese and Mike Vergari. Second-place winners were Rich and Wayne Bailey, and third place went to Dick Day and Randy Wolfe. Tom Penfield and Jim Vanderlin placed fourth; Dondi Hockenbrock and Steve Sees took fifth; and Dale Appleman and Dave Boudeman’s score gave them sixth place. The first- through sixth-place teams received cash awards $400 to $40 per team

Jack Fisher, Steve Sees and Jim Hagerman won the closest to pin contests on holes 2, 6 and 13 respectively; Ernie Naugle was the winner of closest to the line contest, and Eric Yoder won men’s longest drive. Sandi Ricotta was this year’s ladies closest to the line contest champion. After a putt-off with Dave Boudeman, Rich Bailey was the putting contest winner. After lunch, the eligible contest winners attempted to hole a 60-foot putt in the standalone putting contest. There were no winners of the $5,000 putting and $10,000 hole-in-one contests.

Proceeds from the event benefit 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.

Now in its 15th year, the event is a major fundraiser for the two organizations whose missions are community-minded objectives, including preserving local history and heritage and helping youth.

In return for the $80 registration fee ($160 per two-person team), golfers enjoy green fees, a cart, refreshments, lunch, a “goodie” bag, a “closest to the pin” contest, a “longest drive” contest and a “hole-in-one” contest. There are optional activities such as a skins game, a $5,000 putting contest, door prizes and a 50/50 drawing.

Proceeds from the event benefit both the Muncy Kiwanis with its youth community programming and the Muncy Historical Society in its quest to develop a Heritage Park and Nature Trail.

Located along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, the park highlights historical Port Penn, a commercial and residential suburb of the town of Muncy that blossomed out of the West Branch Canal industry of the 1800s.

Nationally recognized for preservation projects, the historical society has incorporated its Pennsylvania Canal Packet Boat (circa 1860) into its heritage park presentations. The restored canal boat is one of many community-oriented projects that have relied upon funding through the golf tournament. For its canal boat restoration, the society received Honorable Mention Award from Pennsylvania Federation of Museums and Historical Organizations and Certificate of Commendation from the American Association of State and Local History

The society also used donations to restore the “Eight Square School,” built on the site of the oldest public school in Lycoming County, which garnered the society the prestigious Pennsylvania Preservation Initiative Award. It re-instituted the Historic Homes Tour of the Muncy area and the Antiques Show and Sale, both major fundraiser events that allow the society to preserve and conserve the area’s past.

Historical society volunteers reclaimed the Old Walton Graveyard and the Old Hill Burying Ground, rehabilitating the burial sites of the town’s founders and early pioneers. Through its Civil War Soldiers’ Monument Project, which included publication of David L. Richards’ “Priceless Treasures,” the biographies of the 71 Civil War casualties whose names are inscribed on the monument, the society redesigned the monument site to accommodate the names of an additional 64 casualties overlooked at its dedicated in 1869. This project received Honorable Mention Award from state Federation of Museums and another Certificate of Commendation from the American Association of State and Local History.

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.

The Kiwanis have worked with the Muncy Historical Society on several projects, including the development of “The Last Raft” documentary.

Registration deadline is May 31 and is limited to amateur golfers, 18 years and older.
