Trinity Golf Tournament, June 13; Benefits “Old Swedes” Church Historic Preservation Foundation

June 6, 2019 0 By newtownpress

SWEDESBORO — Trinity “Old Swedes” Church Historic Preservation Foundation is holding its 26th Annual Golf tournament on Thursday, June 13 at Town & Country Golf Links in Woodstown.

The tournament begins at 11:30 a.m. with a Shotgun Start Scramble format and finishes with a banquet at 5:30 p.m. The entry fee of $135 includes green fees, golf cart, a promotional item, snacks, prizes, and the dinner.

All are welcomed to participate in this fundraising event which supports the repairs and upkeep of this 233-year-old celebrated structure as part of a New Jersey Historic Trust Grant project and easement.  Sign-up at https://trinityswedesboro.org.

Trinity Church was founded as a Swedish Lutheran parish in 1703 and was led by clergy sent from Sweden. Services were conducted in Swedish until the construction of the current structure in 1786, when the congregation chose to affiliate with the Episcopal Church of America.

Your generosity enables Trinity “Old Swedes” Church Historic Preservation Foundation to continue the work of preservation and development at the “Old Swedes” Historic site.  In addition to restoration and maintenance on the buildings, we maintain Trinity Square at the entrance to town where interpretive signs are located to inform residents and visitors of the history of the site and community.  These projects in turn help provide economic revitalization to the community and surrounding area today and for future generations.

For more information call the Trinity Office at 856-467-1227. Should the tournament be cancelled because of rain, individual golf certificates will be issued in lieu of playing that day.
