A deep and abiding spirit of Americanism and service accurately describes the values of the American Legion. Created in 1919, worldwide membership today stands at more than 2.4 million. Not surprisingly, our local Post 347 is the largest post in the world. The membership continues to grow and is presently at more than 60,000. With the motto “Still Serving America!” the American Legion works on behalf of veterans, families, and communities.

Harbor Hill Country Club is proud to host the Children and Youth Charity Golf Tournament on May 13. The fundraiser helps the American Legion in its efforts to benefit youth in our area. This is one small way to show we care about America, veterans, and their families.

The shotgun begins at 8:15 a.m. The cost per golfer is $85. Contests include the longest drive, a hole-in-one, and the closest to the pin. Don’t miss the prizes and surprises! Call the Harbor Hills Pro Shop for more information at 352-753-7711.

Speaking of ways to appreciate families, how about treating Mom to an elegant Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet on May 14? The Harbor Hills’ Mother’s Day Buffet, open to the public, is an exceptional way to celebrate the occasion. The view from the terrace overlooking our Signature 10th fairway is a favorite for snapshots to mark the day.

The menu includes a breakfast station, a carving station, and scrumptious main dishes. Desserts and pastries are spectacular. The adult price is $32.95 per person, plus the service charge and sales tax. Enjoy unlimited champagne and mimosas for an additional $8.79. The price for children ages 5-10 is $13.57 plus the service charge and sale tax. No charge for children under 5.

Our Gainesville grandson joins us for brunch, and it has been a family tradition for many years. Seats fill up quickly, and reservations are required. Call 352-753-7000 for information.
