MONROE, CT — As golfers awaited the shotgun start for the annual First Selectman’s Golf Outing Friday, First Selectman Ken Kellogg joked that a weather forecast predicting rain made him feel like Superintendent of Schools Joseph Kobza deciding whether or not to have school during a snowstorm.
But by the afternoon, clouds opened up to a deep blue sky and rays of bright sunshine peaked through.
Close to 50 golfers participated in the fundraiser for the Monroe First Foundation, raising over $10,000 for community organizations. Kellogg thanked all of the event’s participants and sponsors.
The Monroe First Foundation provides grants to:
- Monroe Playground Foundation
- Monroe Scholarship Fund
- Masuk Post-Prom
- Masuk All Sports Booster Club
- Masuk Parent Teacher Club
- Masuk Music Parents Association
- Monroe Senior Center Activities Fund
