  • Hang on to that Fourth of July feeling

    I hope you enjoyed the Fourth of July. I guess I’m really getting old, because although the music at Buchanan Park was good, I missed the National Repertory Orchestra playing patriotic music.

If you are like I am, you still get a strong feeling of patriotism and pride in our nation on special days like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.

    The Andy Smith Sr. Memorial Golf Tournament is as much about a grandfather’s love as it is about raising money for the Evergreen Park and Recreation District’s special populations program.

    Mountain Foothills Rotary, which sponsors the tournament, named it in honor of Smith Sr. in 2007. Smith, who died that year, owned Evergreen Oil Co., and he was a major sponsor because he had a special place in his heart for children with special needs, especially his grandson, Andrew Tyler Smith, known as Tyler.
