This week's shoutout goes to long time Grande Meadows volunteers Clayton & Marjorie Welsh and Keith & Gertie Howse. Both couples have been stalwart volunteers around Grande Meadows for years now. This past month have been indicative of the things they have been doing unnoticed for many years. During the annual Club Championship and the 23rd Invitational held during September both couples were volunteering at many tasks throughout both weekends. They did a fantastic job of posting scores for both tournaments, making sure golfers got off the first tee on time, spotting on Hole #3 for the Hole-in-one contest, picking balls on the driving range, cleaning around the clubhouse as well as many more tasks. They did this all with a smile on their face and all golfers of Grande Meadows should be appreciative of their efforts. A very big Thank You to all four of you.
All the best and stay safe.
