Earth Calendar for June 25th and June 26th
Wounded veterans are invited to a special golf clinic at Great Parks’ Meadow Links & Golf Academy on Saturday, June 28th from 2:30–4:00 p.m.
The clinic is hosted by the Salute Military Golf Association, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide rehabilitative golf experience and family inclusive golf opportunities for wounded war veterans. The SMGA clinic program is structured to challenge any golfer, whether beginner or single-digit handicap and has provided hundreds of golf clinics open to wounded warriors and their families at more than 10 different locations across the United States. The social interaction and networking opportunities are unmatched in any other sport, and provide a vehicle for integration back into the civilian community.
The free clinic is open to post-9/11 wounded war veterans and other veterans who could use a lesson. Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. at the clubhouse, and loaner clubs are available to any player who needs them. The goal of the clinic is to Empower Wounded Warriors, One Fairway at a time. For more information or to pre-register, call 513-851-5034. To learn more about SMGA and Veteran Kinnection online.
On Our Calendar: Hot days are here so how about a little water play at VOA Metroparks this summer? Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP) and kayaks are available to rent to take out on the beautiful 35 acre lake! Paddle boats and row boats are still available as well. If you are a land lover you can always enjoy a lakeside breeze and fish. Also, very soon, bikes will be available for rental to catch a breeze as you peddle around the lake. Rent your gear at The Wheelhouse Outdoor Adventure Rental Center near the boat docks. More information online.
