Hola El Tigre Golfers,
During today’s Men’s League event we provided an update to all players that we would be having a special memorial event in honor of Derek Pepper. After our golf game today, I met with Steve Johnson, Bev Pepper and Petr Holcak to discuss and coordinate plans for this event. We agreed on the following:
Derek’s Memorial event will take place next Wednesday at 1:30 PM, immediately following our Men’s League golf game and it will take place at Bev Pepper’s house that is located at 136 Calle Venados (the house is located on the 11th hole of the golf course). Steve will make arrangements with his staff to serve light appetizers and refreshments (beer and wine) and we will also conduct our normal post-golf payouts at that time. We will then have a special tree planting and memorial plaque ceremony (on the golf course) that will be dedicated to Derek. Any attendee that would like to speak at the event will be provided an opportunity to do so. We also agreed to establish a fund in Derek’s name that will be used to provide free golf lessons by Hector in support of underprivileged youth members living in the surrounding communities. On a final note we agreed to have a special annual Men’s League golf tournament event that would be dedicated to our dear friend and fellow golfer. If anyone is interested in making a contribution in honor of Derek, we would encourage them to see or contact Steve Johnson’s Administrative Assistant, Isaura Ponce (her office is located next to Steve’s office in the El Tigre Golf Club).
Well done to all that organized this. Derek was a great guy and well deserving of this tribute and honour.
