Volunteers:

A group of volunteers are rostered to mow the lawns weekly. These volunteers are to be thanked for the wonderful job that is done in maintaining the lawns to such a high standards through the hottest times of summer and the coldest days of winter. Volunteers are called on at other times when extra hands are needed e.g. painting, garden maintenance.
