Two New Granite Club Members, More Sought
By Susan Thompson
In 2008, 12 businesses made monetary or in-kind contributions to Lake Panorama National to support the construction of Spikes, the snack and restroom facility located between the first and 10th tees. In exchange, the businesses received a sponsorship sign on an LPN tee box. Several of these businesses have maintained their sponsorship ever since, while some have left.
Now the LPN is seeking sponsors for open holes. Donor signs are made of granite, and words such as unwavering and steadfast define granite. Thus, members of the Granite Club are recognized as unwavering, steadfast LPN supporters.
Annual sponsorships are $500. New sponsors also are asked to pay the cost of the sign, which is $250. All money raised is used for improvements at Lake Panorama National.
Two new members joining the Granite Club in 2017 are Martin Brothers on hole 12, and Jensen Sanitation on hole 13.
Original Granite Club members who renewed for 2017 are Brokers International on the first hole; Panora Telco on the third hole; Guthrie County State Bank/Lake Panorama Realty/GCSB Investment Center on hole five; Exterior Sheet Metal on the eighth hole; Bryton Insurance on the ninth hole; Total Financial Solutions on the 10th hole; Brokers International Financial Services on the 16th hole; and Clover Ridge Interval Owners on the 18th hole.
Granite Club members receive a free round of golf for a foursome, including carts, when they purchase or renew their annual membership. Club members also are recognized on the LPN website, in the LPN Weekly e-newsletter, and in an email to all LPN members, encouraging them to support these local businesses that support the LPN.
Granite Club membership isn’t restricted to businesses. Individuals, couples or groups are welcome to become club members, showing their support and appreciation for Lake Panorama National. Eight holes remain open for 2017 sponsorship – two, four, six, seven, 11, 14, 15 and 17.
Details of the Granite Club, along with a request form for more information, can be found on the LPN website at lakepanoramanational.com. Or call John Dinnebier, LPN director of operations, at 641-755-2080.
