Hospital hosts outing for a great cause

August 23, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Last Thursday, 108 golfers took to the course at the Country Club in Punxsutawney, but the outing was not just a friendly competition.

Though the 27 foursomes were all competing for prizes, including pro shop credit, they were also playing for a much greater cause.

For the past 32 years, Punxsutawney Area Hospital has been hosting the Dr. F.J. Trunzo Memorial Golf Outing, and this year was no exception.

Last week, I wrote about the importance of camaraderie when considering what is a sport. This week, I saw camaraderie in action as I took photos of each fall sports team preparing for its season at the Punxsutawney Area High School's media day.

Hundreds of Punxsutawney area athletes gathered sometime between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to have their photos taken, but what goes unseen in the still shots that the camera captured is the fellowship that sports is providing.
