Letters: Jackpine Writers' Bloc has benefit

On Sunday, July 12 there was a benefit tournament held at Fair Havens Golf Course for the Jackpine Writers' Bloc. The tournament was a great success.

We wish to thank all of our hole sponsors for the tournament. The first place team consisted of Rory and Phil Wolff and John and Lloyd Hilmanowski, winning $400. The second place team consisted of Jared and Jeff Naeve, Gene Lane and Gabe Tranby, winning $200. Everyone who played was given a free pass for 18 holes of golf, donated by Fair Havens Golf Course.

The Jackpine Writers' Bloc, established in 1993, is the local nonprofit writers' group in the Park Rapids/Menahga/Nevis area. Every year, the group puts on various writers' workshops and publishes a book by Minnesota writers called The Talking Stick. The group is working on Volume 18 this year. With the help of the sponsors and the teams that played, the group will be able to keep on publishing their books and encouraging local writers.
