Getting to Know MOGA!
This month, we are getting to know Ken Gaylord, the treasurer for MOGA! Ken was born and raised in Southern California and enjoys golfing (4 handicap) and boating. His career was in the textile industry, and he retired two years ago. He is married to his wife Staci, and they have five children and four grandchildren. He has lived in Sun Lakes for four years and has been a MOGA member for two years as well! Thank you, Ken, for sharing a little about your family and background!
If you are interested in sharing your personal bio and you are a member of MOGA, we would love nothing more than to share your information with our membership! You can provide the following to firstname.lastname@example.org: name, spouse name, children, grandchildren, where you are originally from, how long you have been a member of MOGA, your handicap, hobbies, past professions, etc. If you provide the basics, we can write the article and obtain your approval to publish! Let’s learn more about the amazing members of our MOGA group!
Don’t forget: If you have information to share or you want to add something to the Splash, send a message to MOGAgolfnews@gmail.com, and it will be added to the next newsletter!
