Weeds and Grass Grow All Year…Who Ya Gonna Call?
When “the crew” is not assembling pallets, many of them are helping take care of the many tasks required to maintain the 42 acres of New Danville’s campus. Armed with string trimmers, blowers, and various tools, the team, led by staff member Anthony Juneau (AJ), tackles grass and weeds, particularly near the residences and other buildings.
“Adrian does a great job with the big mowing projects on the zero-turn mower,” AJ said, “but there are a lot of things that the crew can do to help out. It is good for New Danville and good for the crew members.”
All the members agree that the additional wages are much appreciated; they all agree that good work is a good thing, too. Crew members shared that they have fun while working and the paychecks are nice; using the blower seems to be the most fun assignment. Justin reminds us that “Paying attention to your job is the most important thing.”
“We avoid the worst of the heat, but we are still able to get a lot done,” AJ said. The crew members all agree that the work is fun; in fact, there is only one thing they don’t like about the job. When questioned what that might be, all replied in unison, “The heat!”
AJ said, “This is a great crew. They work hard – whether assembling pallets or trimming the grounds or blowing the sidewalk – and they have a great attitude. I enjoy the time with them. We work together, laugh together and grow together.”
