PLYMOUTH â€” About 30 years ago, Marshall Countyâ€™s Ginny Buchman fell in love with the game of golf.

But her efforts a few weeks ago are the equivalent of a 350-yard drive right down the middle.

PLYMOUTH â€” It will be a time of celebration 50 years in the making as United Way of Marshall County honors those who have made the organization what it is at its anniversary party on Sept. 11 at Swan Lake Resort.

â€śIâ€™m pretty sure the seniors thought weâ€™d do it all year long,â€ť said Jason Renz, a senior on the 2007 team. â€śChad (Clinton), Randy (Davis) and I were all on the 2005 team that lost on the half court shot by Luke Zellers. We felt like we were good enough to do it.â€ť
