14th Annual Joe Bishop Memorial Golf Outing

Monday, September 8, 2014

8:30 AM Shotgun StartMerrimack Valley Golf Club

210 Howe Street

Methuen, Massachusetts 01844

 

Year after year we continue to be amazed by the support we receive from friends and family for our Dad’s memorial golf outing. It’s hard to believe that this year marks the 15th Anniversary of Joe’s passing. His memory continues to live on and we are fortunate to be able to do this every year as part of his legacy.

Joe was a man who cared deeply about his family but equally focused his time and energy on those in need in the communities that surrounded him. Throughout his life, Joe was an avid supporter of Lazarus House Ministries and advocated the good deeds they perform on a day-to-day basis.

Lazarus House has been a pioneer in assisting the homeless, the poor and those in need. Lazarus House operates a shelter, soup kitchen and assists food pantries, among many other services. They are continuously working to help move people beyond poverty and crisis, into the mainstream.

Join us this September to celebrate the life of a man who dedicated so much of his time to helping those in need. We look forward to seeing all of you and having a great day of golf in honor of Joe!
