Eric Mortenson was a larger than life presence in Verona’s recreational activities for many years and he probably would have been the first person to sign up for this golf tournament were he still alive. That’s because the tournament primarily funds a scholarship for Verona High School seniors; last year, the Eric Mortenson Memorial Scholarship totaled $8,000.
The Eric Mortenson tournament will be played at the Montclair Golf Club next Monday, October 25, and there are still some spots available. The fee is is $135 per golfer, which includes golf, cart, dinner, beverages, and gratuities. The tournament is open to Verona residents and people who work full-time in Verona or who graduated from VHS.
The golf tournament will begin with a shotgun start at noon. Prizes will be awarded at dinner at the Verona Community Center Ballroom immediately following play.
