Peace Connections is sponsoring memorial tournament to raise funds for Circle of Hope, which helps families with low resources to build a more positive future. The tournament is also honoring Oswald, who died at 97 years of age two days after playing two rounds of golf at Fox Ridge. Fox Ridge was his favorite course, and Harvey County Circle of Hope was one of his favorite charities.
Major donors who have pledged $1,000 or more to the cause include Oswald’s five children and their spouses as well as a family friend, Jane Reed, and her husband, Barry, from Scottsdale, Ariz. Oswald’s children are Jane Lambert (Vaughn), of Salina; Paula McClave (Mac) of Billings, Mont.; Neil Oswald (Kathy) of Manson, Iowa; Brian Oswald (Patricia) of Chicago; and Laurie Robinson (Al) of Newton.
