All those who want to benefit Harvey County Circle of Hope and their spring golf game are invited to participate in the First Paul E. Oswald Memorial Golf Tournament on Saturday, June 24, at Fox Ridge Golf Course in Newton.  Individuals or four-person teams are invited to participate in the tournament, which will begin at 8 a.m. (registration 7:15 to 7:45 a.m.). The 18-hole play will be followed by a Mexican meal and pie. The fee (which includes cart and lunch) for an individual is $65, and the fee for a foursome team is $260. 

To enter the tournament, download a form at www.peaceconnections.org. Entry deadline has been extended. For more information, contact Rose at 316-284-0000; jennifer@peaceconnections.org. 

First, second and third-place team prizes will include four rounds of golf and four dinner coupons at local restaurants. Also awarded will be a new set of golf clubs for the achiever of a hole in one, as well as four hole prizes. Mulligans will also be available. 

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.
