Thank you to everyone that made the 6th Annual Althouse American Open another huge success!!! We have had to overcome a lot of obstacles over the past years, but nothing compares to 2020. We started out in the spring not even knowing if we would be able to have the event. As it ended up, we had an all time high participation rate. Nic and the Hartland Glen team came up with some innovative ways to knock down the last few hurdles. Some of the solutions actually turned out to be a better process than what we had been doing... like the drive thru lunch line. We did not solicit our local merchants for contributions due to the economic impact of the pandemic. We, instead, purchased several gift cards from local businesses and handed them out at the outing by drawing names out of a hat. It truly was our turn to give back to this great community, especially those sponsors that have given so much over the past years.. And, in spite of all the odds being against us, we were still able to raise almost $9,000 for our charitable giving.
We can not wait to see everyone at the next outing, which will be held on July 24, 2021. Even though it seems like a long way off, mark your calendars now as we all will have a lot of socializing to catch up on in 2021!!!
Thank you, again.
The Althouse Family
