Marriage Encounter/Golf Outing in September

golfTom Usher stood as our Honorary Chairperson for the Joshua Foundation golf/marriage interlude in September.  Tom and his wife Sandy’s marriage, their faith, and their commitment to those in need made them the perfect choice for the honor. Fourteen couples attended the weekend of fellowship and golf but mostly as an investment in their marriages.

Dan Seaborn, the nationally recognized family and marriage expert, and his wife Jane presented a refreshing and upbeat seminar on keeping a marriage happy, healthy, and together. While learning about “The Necessary Nine” must-dos to stay married for life, the couples also enjoyed golf and other amenities at Oakmont Country Club and Laurel Valley.

Committee chair members Pete Medure, Dave Profozich and Ingar Lesheim combined with the leadership of Tom Usher and Alex Simakas to make this event truly a success. Ron Croushore of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services and Russell Livingston of BABB Insurance generously contributed and graciously hosted a foursome for Friday’s round at Oakmont.  Other Oakmont hosts included Pat Gallagher of PGT Trucking and Matt Bahr, a former kicker for the Steelers, were also instrumental in the success of the weekend.

In the end marriages were impacted, there was a lot of fun, and an additional $5000 was raised to complete the furnishing of the 14 room Joshua House in Haiti! Please contact us if you might be interested in doing this with us in 2015.
