Girl’s athletics receives donation

Lake Almanor Women’s Golf Association member Mary Craig presents a $1,150 check Aug. 21 from the Sugar Pine Invitational held last month at Lake Almanor Country Club to Chester High School Principal Terry Hernandez, along with athletic director Paul Harding. “We raised the money from [drawing] tickets during the tournament with the help of 56 golf players as well as from sponsors,” said Craig, “including Slusher Plumbing, Olah Construction, Holiday Market, McNeil Storage and Lake Almanor Fitness Center.” Harding said the donation was “outstanding” and a “very nice gesture. … We appreciate that they thought to support the girls’ athletic program.” He said the money could be used for travel to tournaments and equipment. “It’s always nice when organizations” like the LAWGA “think of us and our needs,” said Hernandez.
