Cards of Thanks

Dorman tournament

The Pagosa Springs Rotary Club would like to express our grateful appreciation for all those who made The Rotary Chuck Dorman Memorial Golf Tournament the success it was.

It takes a village to put on a golf tournament! The countless people it takes to prepare and marshal the course, place the donor signs, complete registrations, and just see that everyone has a great day is monumental.

Our special thanks goes to the Pagosa Springs Golf Course for allowing this event to take place, all the golfers who financially supported this worthy cause and of course the hole sponsors who generously gave to an organization whose mission is “Service Above Self.”
