Camp Gordon Johnston hosts golf tourney Saturday

The Camp Gordon Johnston World War II Museum and St. James
Bay Golf Resort will be hosting a golf tournament this Saturday, Oct. 30.

The golf tournament, scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. at St.
James Bay in Carrabelle, will raise much needed funds to support the museum’s
mission to honor the brave men and women who served in the armed forces during
World War II.

The format is 4-Player, Select-A-Shot, Captain’s Choice, and the entry fee is $320. Following the tournament, lunch will be provided.

During the event, Bob Grimes, a member of the museum board, will
have on display a vintage military vehicle, a 1942 Red Ball Express Truck, which
was manned primarily by African-American soldiers who carried desperately
needed supplies including ammunition, fuel and food, across France to the front

Tournament participants as well as the public are invited to
come see this piece of hard-working history.

The museum will also have on display their traveling museum
booth, together with the museum’s archivist, Lisa Keith-Lucas, which will share
historic artifacts and documents on the important role of the Forgotten Coast
during the war.

St. James Bay Golf Resort is at 151 Laughing Gull Lane
outside Carrabelle. For more information on the tournament, please contact Greg
Seidel at St. James Bay Golf Club at greg@stjamesbayresort.com
or 850-697-9606. For information about the museum exhibit or vehicle display, call
