Hugh Archer Golf Outing
August 4, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Rotary Club of Dearborn is seeking golfers and sponsors for the ninth annual Hugh Archer Golf Outing and Banquet on Monday, August 4, 2014. This year it will be at the beautiful Dearborn Country Club. The outing helps to raise funds for the Hugh Archer Memorial Scholarship, named in memory of the longtime Rotarian and Dearborn resident who passed away in 2005 at the age of 91.
Archer was a registered professional engineer whose many achievements included inventor, scientist, entrepreneur, banker, businessman, ham radio operator, sportsman, and humanitarian. He held several leadership positions in Rotary and served as president of Rotary International, the world’s largest service organization with more than 1.2 million members.
In addition to his Rotary service, Archer was active with the YMCA, Boy Scouts of America, Henry Ford Hospital, the Dearborn Schools and many other organizations. He was founder and chairman of Spiratex Company, a plastics extrusion company in Romulus, Michigan. The Spiratex Company has been and continues to be the major sponsor of the golf outing and the major donor to the Hugh Archer Memorial Scholarship.
To celebrate Archer’s many achievements and commitment to community service, one or more annual scholarship awards are presented to high school seniors attending a public or private high school within the Dearborn School District boundaries. Selection is based on the student’s academic achievement, leadership, and community service.
The 2014 scholarship awards of $2,500 each were presented to Rami Hassan Kadouh, a graduating senior from Dearborn High School and Jason Lin from Edsel Ford High School.
“Thanks to all of the support for this golf outing we’ve been able to increase the Archer scholarship award each year,” said Roger Miller, chairman of the golf outing committee. “Archer was a tremendous supporter of the local community. He’d be extremely happy to see all the participation we receive, including people not directly connected to Rotary.”
A foursome package that includes lunch, golf and banquet dinner is $600 or $160 per golfer. Sponsorships start at only $125.
