Lanark News: Golf club hosts tournament Saturday

Hi y’all:

As an interim measure, the paper boxes have been removed from the Lanark area.  The Apalachicola Times can be bought at Carrabelle Junction and Carrabelle IGA.  This article is published on the website on Mondays. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The American Legion Post 82 Sons/Riders cooked up some amazing chicken for our enjoyment.  Those one-half chicken dinners were huge and some of the best I have ever had.  All this hard work went for a fundraiser to benefit the maintenance and insurance fund. The Sons/Riders also had a 50/50 which was for the veterans suicide prevention fund. The drawing was that evening at the Legion while listening to the music of John Jeremiah, Anni Ross had the winning ticket on 50/50 and returned her portion to the Legion. Thank you, Anni.

On Sunday Lanark kicked off the day with their monthly covered dish which was very successful.  After a little rest some of us moved on to the American Legion for a Super Bowl party. Congratulations to the Chiefs!

The Lanark Village Golf Club will have a tournament this Saturday, Feb. 17 from noon to 2 p.m. All ages are welcome with an adult.  There will be golf lessons from local golf pro Nola Tolbert followed by a nine-hole tournament.  A $5 donation is recommended, and children are free. Water and hot dogs are available for donations.  Bring the family out for a fun day. Remember to bring your own clubs or some will be provided.  

Here is your run down on what’s going on this week:  Thirsty Thursday/Covered Dish at Chillas, 5 to 7 p.m. and the Lanark Village Boat Club meeting at the Boat Club, starting at 6 p.m.; Friday, American Legion Burger Night, p.m.; Saturday, Lanark Village Boat Club pancake breakfast (still only $7), 9 to 11 a.m. and Karaoke at the American Legion 7 p.m.; Sunday, Pizza at the Legion, 5 p.m.; Taco Tuesday at the Legion, 5 p.m., and Lanark Village Game Night at Chillas starting at 6 p.m.; and Wednesday is Bingo at Chillas Hall, 6 p.m. We will do it all again next week. Now go get your calendar and write these events down.  

The Lanark Village Association will host an “Evening in the Tropics,” with dancing, karaoke, skits and fun times at Chillas Hall on Saturday, March 2, starting at 7 p.m. Our local “Hope” will keep our party going. Bring what you want to drink and a snack to share. There will be soft drinks and tropical drinks available. So put on your favorite tropical shirt or grass skirt and join us.

If you have any questions you can send me an email and I will direct you to the right person.

Love Lanark
