The South Lake Tahoe Rotary Club will host the 7th Jim Messmer Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament beginning at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Lake Tahoe Golf Course.

The Rotary Club created this tournament in honor of the late Jim Messmer, a longtime member and past club president. Since joining the service club in 1978, Messmer, a local pharmacist, conducted himself with high ethical standards and kindness to all who knew him. His tireless interest in community service exemplified the ideals of Rotary. Each year, the proceeds from the annual golf tournament fund scholarships to local youth who are pursuing careers in pharmacy and health care, thereby keeping alive Messmer’s passion for helping others. Messmer passed away in 1997.

The golf tournament features many prizes and a fun scramble format so golfers of all skill levels can participate. For more information on participating in this year’s event call event coordinator Frank Jones at (530) 544-2611.
