10/2017 IT TAKES A VILLAGE


BLOG AUTHOR: LYNN REITER 10/22/17


2017/2018 TENNIS COURT CLEANING!
BECAUSE OF THE LIMITED CLEANING  EQUIPMENT
THIS IS ONE BIG JOB FOR SO FEW WORKER BEES!

Hank Olson headed up this crew of volunteers last Thursday and Friday.
He had quite a few volunteers to help with the job, but not enough
hoses, water pressure or equipment to keep everyone busy!
I know he appreciated everyone's interest and help with the project.

HANK OLSON

THIS IS THE YOUNG MAN WHO GETS OUR TENNIS SEASON STARTED EVERY YEAR! HE WORKS FROM THE MINUTE HE ARRIVES, WITH ADMINISTRATION, READYING BALLS THAT HAVE BEEN STORED, KEEPING UP WITH SHED, BALL MACHINES, AND HEADS UP THE BIG JOB OF COURT CLEANING. ETC., ETC....HE EVEN ORGANIZES OUR SOCIAL PLAY!



TOM WAS THE FIRST WORKER BEE THAT I RAN INTO AS I APPROACHED
THE COURTS ON CLEANING DAY. HE WAS DOING A PRE-SWEEP BEFORE THIS AREA GETS HOSED DOWN. I THINK THAT HE FILLED A LARGE PAINT BUCKET!!!


GERRIE WAS OUT AT 7:30 AM! LOW WATER PRESSURE
MAKES FOR SLOW PROGRESS! LOOK AT THE DIRT!

 THIS TEAM WORKED TIRELESSLY FOR HOURS.
EACH HAS THEIR ARTHRITIS ISSUES.....DANG!


 PERFECTION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME WITH ALL WORKER BEES!

 FRANK, TOO, WITH HIS ACHING KNEES......HE NEVER STOPPED!


THEY ARE COMING TO THE END ON THIS COURT!

 THE FINISHED PRODUCT SPARKLED!
YES, AS YOU SEE ON THE LEFT, SOME OF THE VOLUNTEERS
PLAYED TENNIS. HANK WAS OVER STAFFED.

THE ENTIRE CLUB THANKS EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU FOR YOUR DEDICATION
AND HARD WORK!



PATTIE AND JOHN HAVE RETURNED!
THEY PURCHASED A PARKMODEL, AND BROUGHT BACK THIS
LITTLE GIRL, BELLA. JOHN SAID BELLA BELONGS TO PATTIE....SHE HAS FEW  TRAINING ISSUES!!!!  "COME!" " NO BARK!" "BELLA DON'T PULL!" WE ALL LOVE HER!



THAT'S ALL FOR NOW FOLKS! 
REMEMBER IF YOU ARE IN THE PARK COME PLAY SOCIAL
MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY AT 7:30AM.

THE BIG BOYS ARE VERY KIND TO US LITTLE KIDS......SO FUN!

IF YOU ARE NOT HERE......I HAVE TO QUESTION YOUR SANITY!!!

STAY TUNED!
