Thanks to Our Volunteers!
The annual Volunteer Appreciation dinner was held Tuesday at the LPN Conference Center, with “Helping Hands” as the theme. About 125 people who volunteered in some way for the LPN and LPA in the last year attended. John Rutledge, LPA general manager, said Lake Panorama offers great scenery, but what makes the LPA a fun place to work is its people. John Dinnebier, LPN general manager, expressed his appreciation to LPN volunteers. Five LPN gift certificates, table centerpieces and a fall wreath were given away as door prizes. Thanks again for all those who volunteer their time each year for Lake Panorama National — it's truly appreciated!
Saturday Last Day to Post Scores Made in Iowa this Season
A reminder from the Iowa Golf Association (IGA) the active season for posting golf scores made on Iowa courses ends Saturday. The IGA has established Iowa’s active season as April 1 through October 31. Golfers who want to keep their handicap up-to-date should post scores for all rounds during the active season. Iowa rounds played November 1 through March 1 cannot be entered into the handicap system. However, if you play golf in another state that is active year-round, or has a longer active season, those scores can be posted. Find a list of active seasons by state here.
