Upcoming Unit Events 
  August - The Unit’s 9th Annual Tommy Irving Memorial Charity Golf Tournament wa held on Friday, August 18 at the Rolling Meadows Golf Club in Port Robinson.  This year's tournament had the largest field yet, with 73 particpants, who raised over $1200 for the Ronald McDonald House!  A big thank you to our tournament organizers  John Sheridan & Shawn Ste. Croix for the continued great work they do putting on this event.
