George and Henrietta Bouyea have been named Honorary Chairpersons for the McSweeney's Mission of Hope Golf Classic. This year's tournament will be June 27 at The Barracks.

PLATTSBURGH -- The McSweeney's/Mission of Hope Golf Classic has named George and Henrietta Bouyea as its Honorary Chairpersons.

Both George and Henrietta Bouyea were born, raised and educated in the North Country. Henri graduated from D'Youville Academy and SUNY Plattsburgh. After George graduated from Mount Assumption Institute, he served four years in the Air Force.

They have lived in the working world of the Plattsburgh area since George started in the Bouyea Baking business and Plattsburgh Grocery Supply. He and Henri continue with involvement in their Lakeside Container Company.

Community service has been a part of their lives, as well. George served as local Chairman of the American Cancer Society, a member of the PSU College Foundation, member of the PAFB Liaison Committee, and member of the Board of Directors of two local banks.

Their love of golf kept them active members at Bluff Point for more than 40 years. They passed that feeling on to their two children and their spouses: George Jr. and Susan, and Paige and Brian Raville. They are all familiar faces on area golf courses, and beyond.

Though George and Henri do not play golf as often as they used to, they still support the sport through charity tournaments like the McSweeney's / North Country Mission of Hope Golf Classic. They are particularly moved by helping to feed needy children.

The Golf Classic will be held on Friday, June 27 at The Barracks Golf Course. Every entrant in the tournament will get a free set of three wedges.

Space is still available and entries can be obtained at The Barracks or by calling Don Miller at 563-4321. All proceeds go to the Children Feeding Children Program of the North Country Mission of Hope.
