Clayton Johndro Memorial Golf Tournament Update – May 2024

Good day all!

We hope this letter finds you, your families, and your businesses safe and thriving. As we embark on the planning for the 19th Annual Clayton Johndro Memorial Golf Tournament, we are excited to renew our commitment to our company’s mission of helping children. The proceeds from this event have provided countless young people in this distressed area with life-changing opportunities, and we are grateful for JSI’s continued hosting of this event.

In recent years, we’ve held the tournament at a new venue, and while it’s not in Milo where the need is most visible, we trust that you understand the challenges faced by this community and why we remain dedicated to this cause year after year. As you know, JSI was acquired by LSI Industries, a partnership that has strengthened our position as a premier manufacturer of refrigeration and wood fixtures in the US, and we are eager to share even more exciting news at the tournament!

This year marks our 19th annual tournament, and we are determined to make it the most successful yet in terms of charitable contributions. We are thrilled to announce that we have raised and donated over $367,000 to the Kiwanis since the tournament’s inception. Last year, with your help, we raised a record $38,150. Many of your businesses have thrived alongside ours, and we deeply appreciate your support.

To continue this success, we will be soliciting hole sponsorships and suggesting additional ways you can participate and make an even greater impact. Our ambitious goal is to raise $50,000 this year, and with your help, we can achieve it!

Our team works tirelessly to promote, organize, and execute this labor of love, and we are excited to announce that this year’s Clayton Johndro Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at the Penobscot Valley Country Club in Orono, Maine on Thursday, August 8, 2024, with a start time of 9:00 AM.

Thank you for all you have done and all that you will do. Let us remember that philanthropy is not just about money; it’s about giving our time, talent, and treasure to improve the lives of others. We believe the children in the Milo area are deserving of our efforts, and we are glad you do too!

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you at the tournament!

Warm regards,

Your friends at JSI
