Baldwinsville On Aug. 6, Ironwood Golf and Country Club hosted the 16th Annual Jim Burton Memorial Golf Classic. This tournament is played the first Saturday of August. All proceeds go to the Jim Burton Scholarship Fund.
Jim's tournament was organized not only to raise money for the scholarship fund, but to honor the memory of a friend to many. A graduate of C. W. Baker High School and a fine athlete, Jim went on to play professional baseball for the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers organizations. As a former merchant and member of the Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce, he always had a smile for you.
