SAME Lake Michigan Post hosted their 2023 Annual Golf Outing on June 16, 2023, 10:30 AM, at Midlane Golf and Country Club in Wadsworth, IL.

The golf outing is SAME’s primary fundraising opportunity for the year and provides funds for the Post’s Education and Mentoring Fund, which provides college scholarships to qualified individuals who are pursuing degrees in the field of engineering, architecture, or the applied sciences and for support of the SAME summer camps.

SAME LMP honored CDR Kenneth J. Endress, F.SAME, USNR (Ret.) for his 50 years of service to the SAME organization. Ken has not only served but inspired so many young and old alike over these many years. We are very happy to share that he will be continuing his work with LMP going forward. Ken also announced (and celebrated) his retirement from the US NAVY after 52 years of service in March of this year.
