BEAVERTON – The Beaverton Lions Club held their 12th Annual Memorial Golf Outing at the Gladwin Heights Golf Course Sept. 7. We had 15 teams participate this year and were able to award many prizes for different contests from putting to long drive, closest to the pin, skins, 50/50, door prizes and flight winners. All of the prizes were donated from local businesses, individuals and the Lions Club. Families and friends were able to sponsor a hole in the name of a passed loved one and businesses and individuals were also able to sponsor holes in their name.
