St. Joseph Catholic Church held its second annual fundraising golf tournament on Sat., May 20, 2023. The event was held on a cool, cloudy day at the Holydot Golf Course in Colorado City.
A total of 208 golfers playing in teams of four teed off after a morning prayer from Fr. Steveh on the putting greens. All were treated to lunch and prizes. The fundraiser was for improving the existing softball fields around the parish grounds.
Parishioner Patsy Cresswell won the 50/50 drawing and donated all her winnings back to the church.
