MMA Annual Golf Tournament

A number of physician members and MMA corporate affiliates got together at the Augusta Country Club (in Maine, not Georgia) for this year's MMA Golf Tournament on July 10.  The proceeds from the annual tournament benefit the medical student scholarship fund within the Maine Medical Education Trust.

 

It was another beautiful, sunny day as the MMA Golf Tournament got under way at noon on July 10th at the country club in Manchester. It will surprise no one familiar with this tournament to hear that the team from Norman, Hanson & DeTroy took home the award for low gross team.
