Wedgewood would like to welcome the volunteer proshop team of Bob and Charlotte Cameron. Bob has been golfing since 1960 when the Big 3 players were Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player. Bob and Charlotte were charter members of Wedgewood from 1967 till 1995 and joined again from 99-05. Bob assisted with spreading chat on the driveway and cart paths while Wedgewood was being developed. He also traveled to Jefferson City with Dr. Joe Spears to obtain the original Wedgewood loan — Federal Recreational Government Loan at 3% interest. Bob was the original Wedgewood volunteer bookkeeper for membership. Bob has gone full circle at Wedgewood because he is back at 80 years young as a volunteer once again. Bob and Charlotte are looking forward to seeing the old timers and meeting the new golfers.
Some nature happenings the next couple weeks include Canadian goslings and wood ducks hatching; skunks and raccoons begin to bear young; June bugs should begin to appear and watch for lightening bugs on warm evenings. A big tulip poplar tree on hole 6 is ready to bloom which is a favorite tree of Wedgewood member Mary Beth Kaps and she is looking forward to the beautiful flowers.
See you at Wedgewood!
