The gray and drizzle were unable to dim
The spirit and memory of James’s grin.
Irish days, accepting greens, were perfect for him
So raingear donned, the games did begin.
Closest to the pin were Power and Neely
It was Brown and Stimpson with long drives ideally.
Daigle and Mastacouris led the net easily
Were medalists with Stimpson and Crocker quite happily.
Back in the clubhouse where we all gathered,
For a hole-in-one, on James’s tab, is what mattered.
Then it was Flynn and McDonough who hilariously bantered
As auction estimates were gleefully shattered.
To the ground crew, Wollaston staff and cart barn team
To Colin and Conor who captured James’s dream.
To our board, volunteers, sponsors and many in between
The players and auction winners, we hold each in esteem.
Hats off to you for allowing us to celebrate
For James, a fifth annual, and for Jim, a sixty eight.
Good cheer and support made the day truly great
Your devotion and enthusiasm, we dearly appreciate.
St Seb’s, the Ouimet and the First Tee,
School, golf and giving back are part of the memory.
So for joining and contributing, thank you sincerely
Living on through students, James always will be!
