The Eric Mortenson Scholarship Fund Committee proudly announces that the fall golf tournament will again be played at Montclair Golf Club and will be the primary fundraiser for the annual Eric Mortenson Memorial Scholarship which is presented each year at Verona High School. In 2016, $6,000 was awarded to high school seniors. Some proceeds may also be used for Verona Recreation programs.
Eric Mortenson, a 1961 graduate of Montclair High School, was a former director of the Verona Recreation Department who passed away from cancer in 2001. From 1971 when he was hired, to his death, he helped start dozens of recreation programs in Verona.
By special arrangement, the Eric Mortenson Scholarship Fund Committee is able to offer Verona residents and people who work full time in Verona or graduated from Verona High School a fabulous day of golf at Montclair Golf Club on Tuesday, October 11, and the opportunity to bring up to three guests without the residency requirement. There are limited spots available for this tournament at a fee of $150 per golfer, which includes golf, cart, dinner, beverages and gratuities.
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. There will be good food, prizes, and more.
