Letter to the editor: Golf outing touches lives of local children

-A A +A

The Annual Owen and Carroll Counties Charity Golf Scramble to benefit the Kentucky Sheriff’s Boys and Girls Ranch was held Monday, Sept. 12, 2011, with Owen County Sheriff Zemer Hammond and Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman hosting the event.
We send our sincere thanks to sheriffs Hammond and Kinman as well as to the Owen and Carroll County sheriff’s offices and to all those helping. Your support and help of this event ensures we continue to reach Kentucky’s youth in a positive manner.
The ranch provides a week-long camp experience to boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 11 from throughout Kentucky who could not otherwise afford to go to camp.
We strive to redirect the lives of these children, to build their self-esteem, moral character and teach them to have respect for themselves, others and law enforcement professionals.
For more information about the camping program, feel free to contact us at 270-362-8660. Thanks again for an outstanding event. We look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s tournament.
