Katie Esposito and Russ Rosborough enjoy a moment at the last Uxbridge Senior Center golf outing.

The 15th annual Uxbridge Senior Center Golf outing, sponsored by the Uxbridge Elderly Connection, features what is now regaled as “nine is the new eighteen.” 
On Monday, October 18, the golf outing will be held at Whitinsville Golf Club in Whitinsville, starting at noon with a shotgun start.  
Whitinsville Golf Club was recently named the second best 9-hole golf course in the world by and is regarded among the top courses in Massachusetts.
Teams of four may sign up to play for $100 per golfer for nine holes, which includes cart and buffet supper. Golfers may contact Russ Rosborough at 508-579-5983 or Karen Beane at 508 769-3816. A full sponsorship may be purchased for $600 which includes fees for four golfers, carts and supper, plus tee sign with additional acknowledgement in press and print matter. 
Special events at the golf outing include two closest to the pin prizes, longest drive, team prizes, individual prizes and more. The number of teams is limited to 14 on October 18, so don’t hesitate to sign up early. Non-golfers may join in the fun for $30 for buffet only at about 3:30 p.m.
Local businesses and community members may support the event by purchasing a tee sign, making a donation or donating a basket or gift item.  Tee signs go for $100 and are a mainstay of this important fundraiser which benefits the Uxbridge Senior Center in its efforts to provide numerous services, education, nutrition, medical transportation and socialization for our Uxbridge seniors.

Much praise for the staff of the center, under the leadership of Director Lisa Bernard, which has succeeded at keeping services going, while following required protocols during the pandemic, beyond what could be reasonably expected.
