The K-9 Support Golf Tournament's goal is to raise enough funds to buy a police dog to replace a retiring canine officer.
Golfers have a great reason to hit the links on May 1, as the City of Milton Police Department will hold a “K-9 Support” golf tournament to raise funds for a new K-9 officer to replace a retired police dog.
