Paige Houston Memorial Golf Tournament

Paige Houston Memorial Golf Tournament

When:  June 1st, 10AM

Where:  Blackledge Country Club


Paige touched so many lives! She was cheer captain for RHAM High School, and volunteered as an assistant cheer coach for RHAM Youth Football and Cheerleading for 3 years. Paige did this while working at a pharmacy and maintaining honors. Paige had planned to attend Eastern Connecticut State University in the fall of 2014, where she planned to pursue coursework to earn her teaching certification.  

The goal is to raise money yearly to be put into a scholarship fund in Paige's name which will be given to 3 students yearly. We also plan to donate to local non-profit organizations on Paige's behalf. 

If you would like to sponsor a tee, donate an item for a silent auction, they can be sent to Ken Houston, in c/o Americare Medical Supply at 7 Uberty Drive, Hebron, CT 06248. You may also contact Michele to schedule a pick up.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Michele Houston.

This year we will have a "Meet the Coaches" night on Wednesday, May 13th in the RHAM High School cafeteria from 6 - 8PM.  This will be an opportunity to meet this season's coaches and ask any questions about the organization.  If you decide not to register on line, this night will also provide for in-person registration as well as in-person payments.  


New this year, families will be able to sign up for their one committee and their two game day duties online, too!  However, this can also be done in-person once practices begin at the snack shack.  If you want to get a head start, the physician's form can be downloaded from the website.
