Indian Hills Clean Up Day

The Indian Hills Golf Association Beautification Committee is sponsoring a planting and clean-up day on the golf course on Monday, April 22 and is looking for volunteers. We’ll rake around all of the tee boxes and plant annuals on eight of the holes. For those raking, the only tool needed is a rake. For those planting annuals, you would need a small trowel. The plants, potting soil as needed and fertilizer will be provided. You’ll also need transportation to the hole(s) you’re working on. After planting and clean-up we’ll have hamburgers and trimmings in the pavilion. We’ll start at 2 p.m., hopefully should be done by 4 p.m. (this will depend on how many volunteers we have). Sign up by calling the Indian Hills Pro Shop at 884-6018 or stop in. Sign- up sheets will be in the locker rooms. Please do so by Friday, April 19.
