The Fairfield Rotary Club will host its 25th annual golf classic at the Brooklawn Country Club on Tuesday, Sept. 25.

The cost is $250 per person or $900 per foursome.

This year’s Rotary Golf Classic is dedicated to the memory of Roy Cant, who died earlier this year.

“Roy was a Fairfield businessman who believed in the Rotary spirit of service above self,” according to a press release from the club.

In addition to other charities, Cant was a major force in both the Fairfield Rotary Club and the Fairfield Rotary Foundation for more than 25 years.

“He was a take charge, hands-on individual,” according to a release from Rotary.

He was in charge of the golf tournament for more than 20 years.

“Largely because of his efforts, the Fairfield Rotary Foundation finds itself in a stable financial footing and with a combination of the current efforts of the club in fund-raising and the earnings of the principal of the foundation, the Fairfield Rotary is able to devote $65,000 to $100,000 of annual resources to charitable efforts,” the release continued. “The number-one objective of the foundation is to be able to continue these charitable efforts long into the future. Roy has helped us achieve this objective and he will be missed.”
