Juneteenth Morning – two days after President Biden declared June 19 as the nation’s newest national holiday – a 15-person team of Sharp Park golfers celebrated with three hours of volunteer work with the Rec & Park maintenance crew, clearing 20-plus pickup truck loads of accumulated debris from the forest floor between the first, ninth, and tenth holes. Then they shared a picnic behind the 3rd Tee.
As the U.S. Open was being contested 500 miles south at San Diego’s Torrey Pines, another municipal seaside links, our hearty Sharp Park volunteer squad – Jason Yip, Grant Ewald, Tom Snow, Teddy and Hector Collins, Pete Shoemaker, Max Stillman, Betty Wong, Lisa Villasenor-Volosing, Helen Duffy, Leslie Davis, Laurie Fox, Matt Regnart, and Richard Harris -- cleared downed branches, limbs, small logs, twigs, and assorted trash and stray golf balls and loaded it all into trucks driven by Rec & Park greenskeepers Craig Stover and Dennis Dias, all under the direction of Rec & Park Supervisor Mike Catanzaro with help from Natural Areas specialist Chris Campbell and Rec-Park Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Gee.

This one's full
There’s more debris to clear, more room in the dump, more good times, and we will rinse-and-repeat the operation in August.
