Norwood firefighter Ben Schibi tells us registration is open until this Sunday, April 19. You can either call 458-4562 or email Cost is $80 per golfer. Hole Sponsorships, which will get your or your company’s name on a placard at hole/tee boxes, are $100. Entry fees include greens fees, cart, beverages, door prizes, dinner and drinks afterwards at the gold course, plus lots of prizes will be awarded, including for the closest to the pin and the longest drive.

Since 1984, the Norwood Firefighters Association has contributed thousands of dollars to the Plogman and Condron Scholarship Fund, which was set up to honor the memories of Norwood firefighters Robert Plogman and James Condron who died a few years earlier in the line of duty. Thanks to many years of donor support and fundraising events like this Golf Outing, each year two Norwood High School Senior are awarded a $3,000 scholarship annually. Additionally, NFA supports Shriners Hospital Cincinnati, MDA, AmTrykes, local youth sports, animal shelters, and other deserving charities.
