Golf tourney kicks off Depot Days events

Hartselle’s 2006 Depot Days celebration will get under way Saturday, Sept. 9, with a golf tournament at Quail Creek Golf Resort. A community-wide worship service will follow on Sunday evening at West Hartselle Baptist Church and a “Down Memory Lane” military salute will be presented at the Hartselle Fine Arts Center on Monday evening.
The annual event will be climaxed on Saturday, Sept. 16, with a bonanza of fun-filled family activities including a 5K road run, antique car and tractor shows, Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show, live stage entertainment, food vendors, crafters’ booths and rides and games for children.
The Hartselle Enquirer Golf Classic will tee off at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start. Golfers will play in teams of four and compete for a number of valuable prizes. In addition to other prizes, three hole-in-one prizes—a hot tub and two golf carts—will be up for grabs.
The community worship service will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will feature the Shoals Praise and Worship Choir.
The choir is based in Florence and has 185 members representing several different church denominations. Since its organization in 1999 it has performed for thousands of viewers and listeners at community festivals, church worship services, patriotic celebrations and military deployment and homecoming ceremonies.
Two well-known guest soloists also will be featured. They are Lloyd Harrod III and Mark Allen Pyle. Harrod is a world-traveled tenor and recording artist and Pyle is a radio station manager in Florence and a gospel music recording artist.
The program will include a flag presentation, patriotic music and comments from two speakers. Frank Parker and Scott Stone, both retired Army National Guard officers, will have speaking parts. Parker will speak on the history of the Alabama National Guard unit in Hartselle and Stone will present a salute to Hartselle’s outstanding military personnel, past and present.
