    CUSTOM SIGN — Angelo D’Ambrosio, president of the E-Ville Riders Snowmobile Club presented to Roberta Thomas a framed copy of the Richard Thomas Trail sign. The new trail starts in Bodfish Valley and goes the length of Onawa Lake and connects to the Benson Trail. Thomas always kept this trail open for snowmobilers. He was an avid snowmobiler and a member and supporter of the E-Ville Riders Snowmobile Club.

    “We’re encouraging people to contact us who may want to compete, but don’t have their own team,” said Deb Boyd, the Y’s executive director, “We heard that in year’s past people wanted to participate, but didn’t have anyone else to form a team. To help them out, the Y will be coordinating teams this year and we’d like anyone interested to get in touch.”
    This year, there will be several chances to win some amazing hole-in-one prizes. Anyone making a hole-in-one on designated holes can win $10,000 cash, airline tickets, golf equipment or more. There will be additional prizes for the winning team and a luncheon is provided to all registrants.
    The fundraiser originated through the vision and leadership of Bud Prouty who together with area business leaders and professionals established the golf tournament. The tournament continues today with the strong support of many local businesses and individuals. Registration can be made in advance at the Y or the morning of the tournament at the golf course.
    The Piscataquis Regional YMCA is a cause-driven organization that is committed to the community and dedicated to promoting healthy spirit, mind, and body for all, through programs and services grounded in Christian heritage and the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
