August 4, 2018, the Manzer twins out did themselves once again (as always) with their annual "Twins Wide Open" at the Cedars Golf Course on the East Road in Lowville. The theme for this tournament was "Super Heros." This Captain and Crew event was a shot gun start at 9 a.m. on this beautiful 18 hole course. Lunch was served and prizes were awarded. Door prizes were numerous! It was another fun filled golfing day. The Martinsburg Historical Society is forever grateful to these ladies for being so generous in time, effort and fun, as well as the funds given to support the historical society.
The 2019 event is already in the works. The Manzers never lack for ideas and enthusiasm! Stay tuned for :
