The Rotary Club held their third annual Golf Ball Drop today at the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club. The three lucky golf balls numbers this year were 8639, 7633, and 7654.

Justin Charron, President of the Estevan Rotary Club for 2018/2019 explains about the event, "this is the third time we've teamed up with the Weyburn Rotary Club to do the golf ball drop. All the proceeds go to any of our community functions we donate to throughout the year as well as our main sponsors, being the STARS landing pad for Estevan that Rotary fundraised for. We are nearing the end of our time for how much we had to raise for the STARS landing pad."

"Ticket sales this year were great, this was Estevan's best year for ticket sales with just over 4000 tickets sold and Weyburn was at about 3800 tickets sold. Ticket sales this year were fantastic, tickets were $5.00 each and first prize is $5,000, second prize is $3,000 and third prize is $1,000."

"The way it works is all the numbers from the tickets go onto the golf balls and we get a big hopper. L&C trucking, this year, was kind enough to come out and help us and do the actual drop over a fake green down at TS&M Golf Course. There's a hole and the first three balls in the hole are the winners."

"We would like to thank everyone in the community for their support. Year after year supporting the groups like Rotary, Kinsmen, Lions and all those community groups who do great work. Rotary is known for their bigger events like lobster fest, the golf ball drop, and all the donations that we do and all the volunteer hours that go into the community is endless and it's thankless. We do appreciate everyone in the community for all the support financially and for coming out to support our events."
