The Eric Mortenson Scholarship Fund Committee will hold its fall golf tournament at the Montclair Golf Club on Tuesday, October 9. The tournament is the primary fundraiser for the annual Eric Mortenson Memorial Scholarship for Verona High School seniors. In 2018, $8,000 was awarded.
Mortenson, a 1961 graduate of Montclair High School, was a 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.
At the tournament, Verona residents and people who work full time in Verona or graduated from Verona High School can plan at the Montclair Golf Club and 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.
