Washington Park Lawn

 

Work Day - June 4, 2015 from 9 am - Noon

 

We would like to spruce up and do some clean up at the Lawn. 9 am - 12 pm noon. Even if you can only come for one hour, we can do a lot of clean up.


Bring gloves, work shoes and clothes. All else will be provided. Water, shade, and no hard labor is involved.


I do need another electric sander to prep the benches for new stain. We need to re stain the benches. We have the stain, brushes and rollers. We need to clean up under all the benches. Does anyone have a fence puller? Just asking.


We can also work on replacing the moss areas with new plugs of good turf.

Spraying for weeds on Thursday, June 4, 2015 and Friday, June 5, 2015. Start using the green again on Saturday, June 6, 2015.

!! Lawn Closed - All Day!!

While it has become a practice to officially begin the season with the celebrations of The Queen’s Birthday, Mother Nature once again dictated that we don’t officially begin until the melting of the “Mothers Day” snow storm and the New Monsoon Season we are experiencing.


So that means Monday May 25th “Memorial Day tournament” we are officially under way. So get the mallets dusted off and your dues check in hand (still only $100.00) and get out to the Lawn. Steve and crew were out before the snow and have the ditches all cleaned and the Lawn mowed. Bring a spouse, a friend or an old member to get the season underway!


The regular season on the lawn is:

 

Monday 10 AM Jiminy Wicket Alzheimer's Program (Volunteers are welcome to assist with this program of Golf Croquet)
  6 PM Denver Croquet Club (Playing Golf Croquet as the club game)
Tuesday 6 PM Washington Park Lawn Bowling Club (English Lawn Bowls, not Bocce)
Wednesday 6 PM Denver Croquet Club (Depending on Players choice: Association or American Laws is played)
