Womens Flight The best-drive format is a lot more fun than Captain’s Choice - every player gets to play their own ball and use their full handicap.*

That was the most fun I’ve had at a charity golf event.*

There are places for cats and dogs to go when they don’t have homes, but a couple years ago Maya Proulx realized she didn’t know of any rescues for larger animals. She’s been around horses all her life, and she adopted the first horse she ever had. But when she adopted Hope a couple years ago, she realized she needed to do more. “I just sort of felt like doing it one at a time wasn’t enough anymore,” said Maya who operates Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue, Inc. “I really wanted to be able to help more horses on a larger scale.”

The nonprofit foster-based rescue organization has placed several horses and even a donkey over the last couple years, but they’ve taken in a couple of residents as well, including Prince and Lucy. “With the economy these days, there are a lot more horses that are needing help,” explained Maya. “We take in horses that are abused or abandoned or neglected. We also take in horses [when] their owners can’t afford them any more.” Their first fundraiser – an open house and yard sale at Rodes Farm – is July 17 starting at about 8 a.m.
