Towards the end of August, we celebrated one of our own. Hector Munoz Torres became a 10-year member of our department. He is surrounded by fellow team members: (left to right) John Lermond, A.J. Josefoski, Dave Ward, Dario Valerio, Ray Lewandowski, Matt Gillespie, Jacob Williams, Andrew Furman, Nathan Hawk, Christian Kobosko and Matt Zimmerman.
In November, our student intern Matt Gillespie, was the recipient of two scholarships!
Matt was selected by the Eastern Shore Association of Golf Course Superintendents for the Mike Gilmore Memorial Scholarship totaling $1,000.

On behalf of everyone involved at the Club, we congratulate Hector and Matt on these wonderful achievements!
