On behalf of Our Hospice patients and their families in the Decatur County service area, tournament co-chairs John Nieman and Jack (Jay) and Teresa Hatton and the 2014 Golf Tournament Committee thank the community, sponsors, players and volunteers for their support of the annual event. Our Hospice and the committee co-chairs also extend their thanks to committee members: Dottie Bilbrey, Sheila Doerflinger, Guy Folkman, Richard Gibson, Peg Nieman, Greta Solgere, Tammie Spurlock, Jim Sturges, Dr. Art Turner, Mark Wickens and Sharon Wickens for their contributions of time and talent to this golf tournament.
