When John Blair took over as the director of instruction at Chicopee Woods Golf Course about two months ago, one of the first items on his agenda was getting acquainted with the local community. Not only will Blair accomplish that Saturday, he and the Chicopee Woods staff will be giving their time to benefit military veterans and their families. Blair and head golf professional Al Morrison will be giving free lessons Saturday at Chicopee Woods to help raise money for Folds of Honor, a foundation that provides scholarships to families of deceased or disabled veterans.
