NHLA's First Annual Golf Tournament

Why Trees Grow Where They Do in NH Forests

 

NHLA's First Annual Golf Tournament


Thank you for making our First Annual NHLA Golf Tournament a great success! We had beautiful weather, a super course and a fantastic group of men and women to make it a spectacular day! As a committee, we could not have asked for a better event. We appreciate your taking time out of your busy work week to spend the day with us. The immediate feedback has been fantastic! We are already looking forward to the 2015 tournament.
 
Our goal was to create a fun-filled day and a lasting tradition, as well as, earn funds for NHLA. The funds will be used to recruit industry leading experts to speak at our conferences, expand our Twilight meetings and invest in the future of our profession through expanded scholarship and educational opportunities. We are proud to say we exceeded our expectations thanks to all your support! Please check out the pictures on our website.
 
A special thanks to Bill Gardocki, from Interstate Landscape Co., and also a past president of NHLA, for his help on the day of the tournament. Bill spent most of his day with Joe Geisler, from Pellettieri Associates, Inc., organizing the Putting Contest and taking pictures!
 
We look forward to seeing you all again next year. Word of mouth is our best advertisement! Thank you for your commitment to building, developing, and maintaining great landscapes in New Hampshire! Thank you for your support and participation!
