The 2023 RAA Golf Outing at PCC

The Riverside Alumni Association held its 2023 Golf Outing on June 11 at the Painesville Country Club. The outing honored Don Pomfrey, ’54 RHS graduate and association trustee for many years. The day was a bit overcast but the rain held off enough for all 10 teams to clear the course. Lunch was plenty, dinner was BBQ and good! And the RAA raised the funds for scholarships and other activities. Here are some photos of the day!
