Plans are underway for one of the area’s first fundraising golf tournaments of the new season.

The third annual Lions Club Golf Touranment for Camp Winfield will be held Saturday, May 25, at the Vernon Golf and Country Club with a 1 p.m. shotgun start.

Last year’s tournament drew a field of almost 70 golfers and raised close to $10,000.
