Emily Anderson

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of former putter Emily Anderson. Emily joined MVLP in 1999, shortly after the club was founded and became a jack of all trades for the club. She was our photographer, statistician and webmaster until January, 2015 when she left MVLP due to health issues.

Emily designed our name tags and the pins that we award to our monthly winners.  The signs that we use for our Annual Meeting were made by Emily.  She loved working with Print Shop and making the necessary signs for our special events along with the name tags for those events. Emily is the reason we have a website. In 2005, she worked with Ron Talbot to develop the Putter website and then in 2011 with Jenny Rink to update the website as you see it today.

In 2004 when Lou Ann Garvin decided it was time to elect a board for our growing organization and to develop By-Laws, Emily recruited putters for that first election: President Dolly Pettit, Vice President Sandy Wolfersberger, Secretary Diane Kirstine and Treasurer Sandy Strack.  Emily was on the board from 2004 as statistician and then added webmaster responsibilities in 2005 until January, 2015.

She always stepped up and helped whenever it was needed. You may have not known Emily but she was the heart of our organization and we all have benefited from her love to MVLP and all the things she started and did for this organization. She has left a legacy and for that we are grateful.

 

STUFF THE SCIENCE BUS!!    Yellow Bus Stock Illustration - Download Image Now - iStock

 

This year our fundraising project for San Manuel School is a “Science Bus” for the junior high students.  According to principal Dr. Michelle Poppen, this traveling science lab will be a great addition to the STEM curricula.  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

We know the world needs doctors, nurses, lab technicians, scientists, inventors, engineers, computer programmers, and mathematicians.  There is no reason why some of them can’t come from a small town like San Manuel.  The students just need something to grab their interest and spark their imagination, to give them a vision of the possible.  We can be a part of making that happen.

The cost to bring the bus to San Manuel is $25 per student.  There are about 120 junior high students.  If you do the math, you will see that the cost is $3000.  That’s a lot more than we’ve ever raised before.  However, MVLPutters has more than 120 members.  If each of us contributes $25, we could easily raise that amount.  Twenty-five dollars is just a suggestion.   Please give what you can.  If you write a check, make it out to MVLP and put Science Bus on the memo line.

Our yellow box is now dressed up as a school bus.  On Monday mornings, you will find it on the Mesquite Grill patio.  The rest of the week, it’s parked on the desk in the Golf Shop.  The deadline for contributions is the end of August.

Let’s stuff the bus!

The MVLP’s meet Monday mornings on the patio behind the Mesquite Grill for our announcements and then putt on the large green nearest the building.  From April 1st to September 30th, announcements begin at 8:30 a.m.  From October 1st to March 31st, announcements begin at 9:30 a.m. with putting beginning immediately after.  MVLP accepts all SaddleBrooke residents whether you are a non-golfer, novice or golfer.

There is no putting in the spring (late May-early June) or fall (late September or early October) while the course is closed for aeration and over seeding.  Regular monthly luncheons continue as scheduled during these closure periods.

Golf carts in the cart lot can double park if you leave the key in the cart so the cart hemmed in can move your cart and get out.

Name Tags:  Many are again forgetting their name tags.  PLEASE try to remember to wear it!
