Seagrave Golf Tournament of 2014:
On November 3, 2014, 52 golfers enjoyed themselves at Poplar Creek Golf Course in San Mateo with a spirited game of team scramble to raise restoration funds for the San Mateo Firefighters’ Association 1921 Seagrave fire engine. “Over $4,400.00 was raised by this tournament,” said Jeff Barile, one of its organizers, “making it a very successful fundraiser for the Seagrave!” The newly “gold-leafed” 1921 Seagrave was driven to Poplar Creek by Barile and was parked by the practice putting green for all to see. Many veteran players of this tournament finally witnessed the fruits of the tournament’s many years of fundraising by viewing “Old Betsy.” Barile acknowledged that the restoration effort has been a “long journey but it has been worth it. The fund raised today will pay for most of the cost of a newly installed clutch.”
