PLYMOUTH — About 30 years ago, Marshall County’s Ginny Buchman fell in love with the game of golf.
“That was a long time ago and I still play about the same,” Ginny laughed. “Not very good.”
But her efforts a few weeks ago are the equivalent of a 350-yard drive right down the middle. In early August, Ginny organized a golf outing at Mystic Hills Golf Course in Culver that raised $3,500 for Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center/Plymouth’s Health Center, located at 116 East Washington Street, which provides care for the underserved of Marshall County and the surrounding area.
