The United Methodist Men of the First United Methodist Church wish to thank the participating golfers, sponsors and contributors to the UMM two-man scramble golf tournament held Sept. 10 at the Sikeston Country Club. The tournament, a charity event, will use the proceeds to support community needs and projects to aid more unfortunate persons and the organizations that help them through the Christian belief in the importance of caring and giving with the generosity of others.
