This year’s Maine Forest Products Council golf tournament drew a large group of golfers to the Bangor Municipal Golf Course on July 18th with a total of 132 MFPC members and guests.  Deserving thanks for their support are the 55 companies that provided tournament sponsorships towards golf prizes, the 9th hole reception, equipment showings, cart sponsorships, banner sponsorships, hole sponsorships, raffle items and items for the golfers bags.  Below you will find all the individual companies who contributed.

1st place Net (51): Chris Fitzpatrick of Machias Savings Bank, John Raymond of J.D. Raymond Transport, Bill Rayfield of J.D. Raymond Transport, and Bill Crawford of MB Bark, LLC.

 The council staff would like to especially thank Brian Flewelling of Key Bank for the tremendous amount of time that he continues to contribute in making this fund raiser a success. There were many attempts for the hole-in one contest sponsored by Varney GMC out of Bangor but the vehicle was not driven home by any of our golfers.  Oh, well!! Better luck next year.
