Peter has worked at The Farms CC for almost two years. He started as a laborer on the golf course and quickly proved his worth. Peter excelled at every job he was assigned. His outstanding work ethic coupled with his attention to detail made him the perfect candidate to take over the position of Tennis and Clubhouse Grounds Maintenance Man. His position encompasses all tennis court maintenance and grounds maintenance of the tennis, pool and clubhouse areas.
I’m very pleased to say that since Pete has taken over his new position, the grounds have never looked better or more meticulously maintained! The court conditions are fantastic and his attention to detail is unsurpassed.
Pete not only takes great pride in his work here at The Farms CC, but shares his skills with Lowes of Wallingford where he “moonlights” in the garden department.
On the personal side, Peter is very proud of his son Michael. Michael is a sailor aboard the USS Chancellorsville. The USS Chancellorsville is a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser. The ship is part of the Ronald Reagan Strike Group and is homeported in San Diego, California.
Last fall Peter had the wonderful experience of being able to take part in the “Tiger Cruise” with his son. The “Tiger Cruise” is a voyage aboard the vessel in which his son is stationed on. Pete met the USS Chancellorsville in Pearl Harbor, Honolulu, Hawaii. Once aboard, along with other families of the crew, he was able to sail to the ship’s home port of San Diego. Pete says the six day cruise was an experience of a lifetime and he’s incredibly proud to have shared it with his son.
I’m confident that Pete will continue to impress with his exemplary work ethic, dedication and impressive ideas. He has already set the benchmark for his position in less than three months!
Keep up the great work Pete!
