President’s Blog February 2020
As I watch the fluffy white snow land softly on the frozen ground, I am reminded that it is still winter in Maine. The students and teachers are enjoying their second “snow day” of the school year. It has certainly been a mild winter compared to last year.
I am very excited to get to the end of the month so I can drive to Boston and attend the Annual Boston Golf Expo. This will be our 2nd year of having a display booth with a televised drone video of our course. We will also have a giant New England map showing our location as well as a weekend getaway drawing to The Lodge @ Pleasant Point Inn. This show is the largest golf show in New England and is great exposure for our course. Much thanks to Nancy Calvert for leading the charge!
There are always changes at LKCC every year and this year will be no different. I anticipate clubhouse improvements, bridge work on #2, water filtration system at our comfort station and cart path improvements. The biggest changes however will be the daily leadership in our clubhouse. Bill Bissett has decided to step down from his position as GM. Bill has done an incredible job in his tenure and has played a critical role in the financial stabilization of LKCC. My deepest gratitude and appreciation go out to him. I wish Bill and Chris many years of happiness in their retirement.
It is with great excitement and anticipation that I am announcing the hiring of our new General Manager, Nancy Calvert. Nancy has worked at LKCC for many years and has done advertising and marketing behind the scenes for over 10 years. I feel very confident that Nancy will do a spectacular job. Bill has graciously accepted a consulting role to help her this year to assure a smooth transition.
Yours in Golf,
