Mini Golf Takes Chill Off A Winter Day

OSWEGO – It was cold outside, but inside the Oswego Public Library it was a great day for a game of golf.

The annual Mini Golf event sponsored by the Friends of the Oswego Library attracted more than 100 golfers who competed on an indoor course throughout the library with each hole devoted to a literary theme.

Volunteers Ciarrah and Melanie from the Oswego High School Swimming and Dive team assist at the Friends of Oswego Public Library Mini Golf event on January 21.

Hole sponsors included the Lake City Police Club, the Firefighters Association, the Oswego Lions Club, the Press Box, Man in the Moon Candies, the Good Guys Barbershop, the H. Lee White Maritime Museum, and the Oswego Bookmobile.
