Golf outing

Upper St. Clair Volunteer Fire Department will hold a golf outing Oct. 19 at Quicksilver Golf Course.

Action begins with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Registration begins at noon. The fee to attend is $100 per person.

Proceeds from the four-person scramble benefit the John M. Lekse Scholarship.

Lekse was a firefighter who recently died. His family started this event in lieu of flowers. The hope is the golf outing will raise an additional $3-$4,000 to establish a scholarship available to any USC firefighter who wants to continue their education.

“It’s our way of continuing John’s love of teaching, learning and helping others,” said Lekse’s wife, Sue.

Entries should be mailed to: Sue Lekse, 2230 Country Club Drive, Upper St. Clair, PA 15241.
