Extra help

It has been a few weeks since my last post, we have been quite busy, as is typical for this time of year.  It has been all hands on deck to keep up with the mowing and blowing off the clippings that we have abundantly produced lately.  Today we completed filling all the holes left from our winter tree removals, next week we will start preparing our landscape beds for mulch.

A few weeks ago we took on a new hire to help maintain the landscaping and flowers around the clubhouse.  Peggy Biolchini, who was formerly working in the club office is now with the Grounds Department filling this position.  Her love for the outdoors, flowers and plants makes this position a great fit.


We have also received a little extra help from our friends at Blanchard Valley Center.  We are using the Grounds Department as a resource for some of their clients to learn job skills that will make them marketable in the work place.  Pictured above is Michael, he has been helping us out with a few details around the course.

Today, Ian came to help us sweep out the barns for a few hours.  We wish them all the best as they search for the right positions.
