The eighth annual Forrest G. Whitman Memorial Golf Tournament was held on Thursday, August 24, 2017 at Mt. Kineo Golf Course in Rockwood. The day was perfect for golf and we had seventeen teams this year.  Richard McCarthy and his team had one of our favorite former NASCAR driver Ricky Craven as a player this year. The teams enjoyed playing on a perfectly groomed course and during the day enjoyed a terrific barbecue manned by CA Dean employees and our board chair, Linda Gilbert.

This year's winners were the team from Seacoast Security who played a 56, well done! We want to thank the staff at Mt. Kineo Golf course, Elwood Doran and his staff, as well as the generosity of Marcel and Helene Dutil! Thank you so much.

Forrest G. Whitman's 36 years of volunteer service as a board member at Charles A. Dean Memorial Hospital were instrumental in supporting the hospital during challenging times. In 2010, the hospital organized the first annual Forrest G. Whitman Benefit Golf Tournament to acknowledge Mr. Whitman's service and to celebrate his love of golf.  Mr. Whitman passed away in February 2012, but the tournament stands as a reminder of his devotion to CA Dean.

Since 2010, the tournament has raised more than $40,000 to support patient care at CA Dean.  Please mark your calendars for next year as we are reserved for Thursday, August 23, 2018.
