Rotary Club hosts Archer scholarship golf outing

DEARBORN – The Dearborn Rotary Club will host the fifth annual Hugh Archer Golf Outing and Banquet at Dearborn Hills Golf Course Aug. 26.

A foursome package that includes lunch, golf and dinner banquet is $480 or $125 per golfer. Sponsorships start at $100.

The event helps raise funds for the Hugh Archer Memorial Scholarship, named in memory of the longtime Rotarian and Dearborn resident who passed away in 2005 at the age of 91.

“We still have room for golfers looking for a fun outing with friends while supporting this worthwhile cause,” said Roger Miller, chairman of the golf outing committee.

Archer was a registered professional engineer whose many achievements included inventor, scientist, entrepreneur, banker, businessman, ham radio operator, sportsman, and humanitarian. He held several leadership positions in Rotary and served as president of Rotary International, the world’s largest service organization with more than 1.2 million members.

In addition to his Rotary service, Archer was active with the YMCA, Boy Scouts of America, Henry Ford Hospital, the Dearborn Public Schools and many other organizations. He was founder and chairman of Spiratex Co., a plastics extrusion company in Romulus.

To celebrate Archer’s many achievements and commitment to community service, an annual scholarship award is presented to a high school senior attending a public or private high school within the Dearborn Public Schools boundaries. Selection is based on the student’s academic achievement, leadership, and community service.

“Mr. Archer’s motto was always ‘Enjoy Rotary,’” Miller said. “This outing provides a great way for everyone to do that.”
