This year the MEDC changed things up a little.This year we brought the annual event to Bliss Creek in Sugar Grove. They have been a MEDC general growth partner for several years, so we felt we should give our supporting members this opportunity. We added a full steak dinner with all the trimmings.There were over 108 registered golfers and a great crowd throughout the event. 130 people attended and everyone complimented the food, the environment and the staff! We have secured September 12, 2019 for next year! Please be sure to save the date.
