A special golf tournament will be hosted this Saturday, July 24, at the Pelican Rapids Birchwood Golf Course.

Titled the “Oh My Pineapple (OMP)” tourney, the event both honors late Pelican school superintendent Ed Richardson, and raises funds for the school. 

Richardson was known for his novel motivational tool—the “Oh My Pineapple” award. He presented a pineapple to staff, students—just about anybody—for deeds above and beyond the call of duty. The pineapples were also presented for random acts of kindness, and academic, arts and sports accomplishments. 

For more information on the 2 p.m., July 24 tourney, call Birchwood at 218-863-6486.
