A Solid Start to a Great Future!
As we say farewell to another summer and welcome a new fall — with its cooler weather, football games and tailgate parties — MTC has much to be thankful for. As mentioned in my Spring president’s letter, we are blessed to have such a dedicated group of board members, and since January, our board meetings have been extremely productive in working to make our organization the best it can be. Here are some examples of what 2017 has delivered and what 2018 will bring.
** Our sponsorship throughout the year of pesticide re-certification classes for the state of Maryland.
** The University of Maryland Turfgrass Field Day on July 12, which was a great educational event.
** The University of Maryland Turfgrass Research Golf Tournament Competing for the Angie Cammorata Cup, which was to be held on September 27 unfortunately had to be cancelled due to lack of sufficient sponsors.
** A stronger Mid Atlantic Turfgrass Expo for 2018, working closely with the Virginia Turfgrass Council. I would like to reiterate — please do not hesitate to contact any members of the board for any questions, assistance or thoughts in making this organization stronger.
Finally, we wish Dr. Kevin Mathias all the best in his retirement, and we thank him for his support and guidance of MTC over the years.
