Many thanks to all of the staff, volunteers, sponsors, board members, patrons, and supporters who made
PSD's 1st Annual Golf Outing such a huge success!
Our day of golf, socializing, and networking with fellow Panthers and those in support of our community was made possible through the commitment of our Golf Outing Planning Committee.
We look forward to next year's outing--bigger, better. . . with a tad more sunshine!
