Golf course maintenance crew appreciation event

Don Plapinger

On Friday, December 12 the Green Committee will host the seventh annual Holiday Appreciation Luncheon for the members of the MountainView and Preserve Golf Course Maintenance Crew. The maintenance workers are not HOA 2 employees and they do not benefit from the HOA 2 employee appreciation effort. All contributions go directly to the 24 men who work in daylight and darkness, through all weather conditions, side by side with the rattlesnakes and scorpions (not to mention the occasional errant golf shot) to make our courses a great place to play golf. This luncheon is our way to take one day out of the year and show them our appreciation for their efforts.

At the luncheon each crew member is presented with a sealed envelope containing holiday cash. In addition, members of the various golf associations will provide the food for the luncheon. We are asking for contributions from the SaddleBrooke golfing community to make that possible. We understand that many golfers do not participate in one of the men or women’s golf associations, but still enjoy playing our lovely courses. Collection boxes will be available at both The Preserve and MountainView golf pro shops through December 10 to make it easy for you to contribute. Donations may also be sent to Don Plapinger, 62265 Sand Crest in SaddleBrooke. Please make checks payable to Don Plapinger. In the past, our golf course workers and their families have been able to have a happy holiday season due to your generosity. Thank you in advance for continuing this holiday tradition in the SaddleBrooke golf community.
