Former TMI golf outing benefitting fire company to continue

Posted

The annual golf tournament raising funds for the Londonderry Fire Company, which used to be sponsored by the Three Mile Island nuclear plant and its owner, Exelon, has a new sponsor.

During the Feb. 3 Board of Supervisors meeting, township manager Steve Letavic said the tournament will be sponsored by the New Jersey-based construction company Jingoli and EnergySolutions of Salt Lake City.

The pair formed a joint venture to decommission Three Mile Island Unit 2.

Letavic said the tournament will be July 30-31 this year.

The golf tournament at Sunset Golf Course has raised more than $750,000 for the fire department over 14 years, Bart Shellenhamer, vice chairman of the board of supervisors and fire company chief, said during an August supervisors meeting.

The tournament funds have been used to expand the fire station and purchase emergency and firefighting equipment.

There have been questions about the future of the tournament following the closure of Three Mile Island last year.

In August, Shellenhamer said the department planned to have the tournament in 2020, whether it was sponsored by TMI or the department holding the tournament by itself.
