    Rod Pratt Receives Fosdick Check

    The Meadows Valley Benefit Golf Tournament aka “The Fosdick” held it’s award ceremony Friday, October 4, 2013 at the Senior Citizens Building in New Meadows.  About 75 people attended and “The Fosdick”awarded $27,000 in funds raised this past August to 11 non-profit organizations of which the Adams County Historical Society (ACHS) was one.  ACHS President Rod Pratt received the check from Dispersement Chairman Sylvia Tinsley and “Mr. Fosdick”Tom Anderson. The funds will pay for the installation of asphalt tile floor in the Freight Room at the Depot.  This will finish that room and make it more user friendly.  The Fosdick is in its 28th year and started in 1985 with a group of friends, who enjoyed golfing together, decided to do a little fund raiser.  It has grown to involve many volunteers, donors, contributors and golfers and over the years has raised over $377,000 that has all been donated back to non-profit organizations, school programs, and The Fosdick College Scholarship program that has handed out $41,600 in second semester scholarships to students going on to secondary education or additional un-traditional schooling.  The ACHS has been a beneficiary of the generosity and hard work of these people and it that has allowed the ACHS to finish restoring depot windows (combined with matching grant from Idaho Heritage Trust), purchase office equipment, exhibits and now install new flooring.  Thank you “Fosdick” et. al.  for your hard work and generousity.
