A NOTE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
This year has proven to be a challenge for all of us. It was supposed to be an unprecedented 20th year celebration of our annual golf outing for our beloved Metropolis camp in Contoocook, NH.
The Metropolis of Boston annual summer and winter camp has and continues to play a profound role in the lives of hundreds of our Orthodox young people annually. This year’s summer camp was conducted in a virtual environment where over 150 campers participated in a spirited and enthusiastic effort online.
It is with this success in mind that we are pleased to invite you to participate in our first ever virtual golf classic as a player and/or as a sponsor. On Tuesday, October 27, 2020 we invite you to join us for a one-hour virtual Golf reception hour online at www.boston.goarch.org as we have a fun-filled program planned, during which video highlights of our past tournaments will bring back great memories and smiles to all of us! All the proceeds will benefit the “Support-A-Camper Scholarship Program” of our MBC camping ministry, as well as our St. Methodios Faith and Heritage Center in Contoocook, New Hampshire.
We have been in constant communication with our friends at the Indian Ridge Country Club with hopes of having some event to commemorate this milestone. Using our best judgement with local and state guidelines, we have decided it would be in our collective interest to modify this year’s event. We are disappointed but we believe it is the right decision given the circumstances.
The golf tournament remains the sole fundraiser for camp and plays a vital role in its financial stability. Your generous support affords us the ability to offer scholarships to roughly one third of all campers. With this year’s economic hardship, your support is more critical than ever.
Please find enclosed the information that will allow you to register and donate to help perpetuate the camp that has had a positive influence for thousands. You may also donate directly online at www.mbcgolf.org .
Looking forward to your support and to share in our virtual Golf Tournament Reception Hour on Tuesday, October 27 at 7 pm online at www.boston.goarch.org we remain,
M E T H O D I O S, Metropolitan of Boston
