The eighth annual golf tournament to benefit The Alden House Historic Site is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 28 at the Duxbury Yacht Club Golf Course. Tee off for the scramble format tournament will commence with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., with registration beginning at 12 p.m. Greens fee, cart, lunch, beverages, snacks, mulligans, an awards banquet and tournament gifts are included in the registration fee of $150.
Cocktails, featuring a raw bar, donated by Schucks Seafood Catering of Marshfield, buffet, raffle and an awards ceremony will take place at the â€œ19th Hole Receptionâ€ immediately following the tournament at the Duxbury Senior Center.
Proceeds from the event, sponsored in part by Innate Swing Chiropractic and Fitness, will further the organizationâ€™s mission of developing a major museum, family attraction and educational center in Duxbury, featuring the Alden House as its centerpiece.
The Alden House Historic Site and the adjacent â€œ1627 First Siteâ€ are now officially recognized as a National Historic Landmark, reflecting the deep significance in American culture of the heritage of John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, the archaeological importance of their ancestral home site, and the influence of their inspiring story through Longfellowâ€™s beloved saga, The Courtship of Miles Standish.
The Alden House, one of very few remaining homes in the country inhabited by the same family for over 350 years, gives the Alden Kindred a unique opportunity to bring history alive through the lives and livelihoods of an average American family.
Registration forms available at The Alden House Museum Gift Shop, alden.org or by calling 781-934-9092. For more information call â€œRinkâ€ Ringquist at 781-934-2879, Bonnie Conant at 781-837-8666 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
