Firefighters and citizens took part in a golf tournament at Heron Lakes Golf Course in North Portland this morning to raise funds to benefit the Portland Rose Festival Foundation and the David Campbell Memorial Association.
The David Campbell Memorial Association honors Portland Fire & Rescue firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty. The Association is also actively raising funds to erect a new memorial to honor the 36 Portland firefighters who have died in the line of duty since 1881 near the Vera Katz Eastbank Esplanade. Learn more about the memorial and fundraising efforts here.
8:30 am marked a shotgun start and activities included a hosted lunch and beverage stations. Contests were held throughout the day.
Great job and a big thanks to all golfers and supporters!
