Upcoming Events


The next meeting is Thursday, October 4, at the home of Mark and Susie Everhart, 1989 Warf Road, Lexington.  Their home is also accessible by boat.


I’d like to challenge all High Rock Lake River Rats to go out and get a minimum of two $100 dollar Golf Tournament Hole Sponsors. 
They can go to companies, doctors, dentists, restaurants and friends. Hole Sponsors are not limited to businesses and can be in memory of a loved one, congratulations to someone they are proud of etc. 
With 80 plus River Rats we should be able to have a record number of sponsors.  
So the CHALLENGE is on. If we get at least 80 Hole Sponsors, the River Rat with the MOST paid sponsors will receive a $100 prize! 
Our Annual Golf Tournament is a vital fundraiser for our annual goal.  As we have recently learned, more and more kids rely on our donations for even the most basic of needs.  Vernon Walters, President/CEO of Nazareth Children’s Home, said there are more children needing foster homes than there are homes to support them.  Kim Hedrick, Davidson County Social Worker, said more and more children are in need due to the increase of drug use in the parents. 
We need more hole sponsors and teams to make this event a success.  Please consider being a hole sponsor:  a group of friends just for fun;  in memory of a love one;  in honor of a loved one;  a cause;  someone serving in the military;  nothing political;  10 neighbors chipping in $10 each;  be creative.  It’s a wonderful cause. 
WE NEED TEAMS!!!!  If you are forming a team, please let Pam know asap.  She has none committed to date.  No cash in hand.  We need to get this event locked down.
Forms can be downloaded from this website.
Thank you for your help.

President, HRLRR
