LOWVILLE — The Twins Wide Open Golf Tournament was held Aug. 2 at Cedars Golf Course, and ended early due to a violent thunder and lightning storm. Sponsored by twins Marcia Kenealy and Marilyn VanZandt, the tournament raised $1,150 for the Martinsburg Historical Society.
Dawn Manzer, the twin’s mother, is a charter member of the society which was started in 1976 in response to President Gerald Ford’s request that communities across the nation do something special to commemorate the 200th birthday of the United States. Mrs. Manzer has been a life-long promoter of the town of Martinsburg.
