The Brockville Community Care and Share Golf Tournament Committee Night was held in support of the upcoming fourth annual golf tournament Friday, Aug. 22.

Three service clubs joined together three years ago - Brockville Civitan, Brockville Kinsmen and Brockville Lions Club with the Brockville Highland Golf to put on this event. That night, 10 per cent of all food purchases went to the BCP. This is the first of several upcoming fundraisers for the group this year, leading up to the golf tournament. Also set to take place is a barbecue at The Butcher Shop, May 24, and one at the BGH June 6.
