Big Improvements @ MLC

On the eve of our opening, I wanted to share with you the results of a large, multistage transformation of the club grounds spearheaded by our Grounds Trustee Bob Ehinger. At the beginning of the year, Bob took a comprehensive look at the issues to be addressed and mapped a multi-phase plan to deal with: delayed maintenance on our storage garage; drainage issues on the upper grounds negatively impacting the courts; safety concerns about the grading around the pickleball court; and the buckling of the tiered retaining walls. In addition to these issues, there was general grounds maintenance work to be done in the flower beds, and lastly, Bob had the courage to try and tackle the storage area by the basement steps where, as he put it, “old grills go to die”.
