Fulton-Montgomery Community College hosted its 19th Annual Golf Classic, “Keeping Futures on Course,” Wednesday, May 23 at Rolling Hills Country Club in Fort Johnson. The Golf Classic raised an estimated $30,000 to support the College’s much anticipated Raiders Cove, a modern day gathering space for FM students which will be located in the Physical Education Building’s vacant pool area.
