The first annual Dave Crosier and Mark O'Connell Golf Classic was held on June 20th at Highfields Country Club in Grafton. All proceeds benefited The Mark O'Connell Foundation for Lake Winnipesaukee Safety.
Despite the heavy rain in the morning, players went out on the green for a day of fun and competition. Teams were made up of friends, family or people who were impacted by the story of Dave and Mark's lives. The event raised over $21,000, all of which will be used to purchase safety equipment and training for the emergency response and rescues teams of Lake Winnipesaukee.
We are thrilled to announce that our second grant request has been approved and will be purchased this summer.
The foundation will be supplying The New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation with communication equipment that can be installed inside helmets for all officers assigned to patrol Lake Winnipesaukee.
Today, officers are carrying handheld radios with a portable speaker while operating ATV’s and snowmobiles. Due to the noise of the vehicles and weather like high winds and rain, calls are often missed or officers must stop driving in pursuit of an emergency to get updated information. By giving these officers improved communication equipment, we can expedite the process of officers recieving critical information about emergency situations.
Be on the lookout for a Q&A with Lt. Bradley Morse, about the helmet communication equipment!
Thanks for the love and support and always remember to Celebrate Everything!
