2012 Heartland Acres Annual Golf Outing Recap
The golf teams of East Central Iowa Rural Electric Cooperative and Brown-Lane Insurance take a break from the annual Heartland Acres Golf Outing held Wednesday, September 5 at River Ridge Golf club in Independence, Iowa
20 (4-person) teams participated in the annual Heartland Acres Golf Outing held September 5 at River Ridge Golf Club in Independence, Iowa. Great weather, prizes and a lot of fun came together in the annual Heartland Acres Golf Outing. The event aids Heartland Acres Museum in its many initiatives in educating and entertaining visitors on the importance of agriculture and our rural heritage.
Brian Bell, Event Manager at Heartland Acres, was excited about this years’ event. As he put it, “This event keeps drawing interest and growing each year. It all comes together to support the initiatives of the Heartland Acres campus. Our staff and board members were active in planning this event and their continued help and support is appreciated.”
Event and hole sponsors came together from around the area to financially support the golf outing. This year the golf outing drew attention and sponsorship from several new sponsors in Kansas (including Farm Collector magazine), Montana and Minnesota. Heartland Acres acknowledges and thanks the sponsors and volunteers who helped make this years’ outing another success.
Event organizers are planning the 2013 golf outing which will be held on Wednesday, September 4.
