Happy Thanksgiving from the SAA!Updated Tuesday November 24, 2015 by Saugerties Athletic Association.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish to give my thanks, along with my sincere appreciation to all the Sponsors, Volunteers and Players who made the SAA’s 24th Annual Sawyer Motors / Sawyer Chevy Golf Tournament an overwhelming success. Many of you have carried on the same tradition of support, year after year, for the past twenty-three years.
Many thanks to our Tournament Sponsor Bob and Larry Siracusano for their tremendous show of generosity to the SAA with minimal costs, along with sizeable donations and contributions. Both are truly remarkable individuals, we are most fortunate and lucky to have both of them as part of our great community.
Additionally, John and Sara Smith, proprietors of Rip Van Winkle C.C., the venue host. Their show of support and generosity today, along with that same display from the very beginning, twenty-four years ago, by the Smith Family has been, and continues to be, unprecedented. If anything, John and Sara have not only continued the Rip’s show of generosity, they have expanded on it, every year.
The combined hundreds of businesses, organizations and individuals who have taken various levels of sponsorship each year, along with those who have donated and contributed prizes, gifts, etc. and the eighty players, some, who have participated since year one. Thank you for your continued support and generosity.
My many thanks to the Tournament Committee, along with the other Volunteers who play roles and work the tournament, the day of. Special thanks to Committee Member Alice Kirlauski, who spearheads many components of the event, including the spectacular Program Journal. To all of you, your tireless efforts, dedication, support and generosity has been unprecedented. I, nor any one person, could ever do without each and everyone of you.
For the 24th consecutive year, the tournament has been a sell-out and overwhelming success. None of this would be possible if it were not for all aforementioned, all for the benefit of the SAA, our youth and community. I can never begin to extend the amount of thanks and appreciation equal to your support and generosity.
I wish everyone a very Happy, Healthy and Safe Holiday season, along with hopes you are able to enjoy the season and the wonders of Christmas to its fullest with family and friends. May 2016 bring you nothing but happiness and good health, along with being your best year yet. Thank You all, again, and ALL THE BEST TO THE BEST!!!!!!!
