“The best time ever!” This review from a pint-sized attendee at last year’s Literacy Links Invitational  is a big reason we are bringing this great family event back for a third time on March 17 and 18.  At Friday evening’s “Irish Open” adults will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, libations, and an Irish whiskey tasting along with their 18 holes. Saturday’s Family Fun Round will feature mini-golf, magic, balloons, face-painting, snacks, and more for kids and their parents.

Admission to the Irish Open is $75 per person. Family Fun Round admission is $5 per person. Click here to register.

We are grateful to our Literacy Links sponsors: MacElree Harvey, CTDI, Fulton Bank, Side Bar & Restaurant, RC Taylor Group/Stuart & Mary Brooks, A. Roy Smith, and Brenna Quinn & Sean O’Hara.
