Get your team together and golf for a great cause in Hannibal.  The Debbie Catlett Memorial Golf Tournament is coming up at 10 a.m., Monday, September 23 at the Hannibal Country Club.  Proceeds benefit the Hannibal Nutrition Center's Meals on Wheels program.

Debbie Catlett served 28 years as the Director of the Nutrition Center.  Cancer claimed her this year at the age of 64.  She battled cancer for decades but it never defeated her spirit.

I got to know Debbie about 22 years ago when I first joined the Board of Directors for the Hannibal Nutrition Center.  I've never known someone so passionate about her job, and specifically the seniors that she served.  She loved with a fierce intensity and that love extended from her work, to those of us who were fortunate enough to call her a friend, and especially to her family.  Today, her daughters Margee Tucker and Jenni Welch are continuing their mother's dedication by being the lifeblood of the Hannibal Nutrition Center as administrators.

This is the 11th year for the HNC Golf Tournament.  We still need teams and hole sponsors.  If you can help out, call the Hannibal Nutrition Center at 573-221-4488
