MALCP’s Annual Meeting was again held in person at the Wayside Inn. It was great to be together for a delicious meal and informative conversations. Thanks to generous toy contributions, we matched our yearly goal of filling 2 large boxes for Toys for Tots.
Steve Boksanski spoke with us about how the pandemic has affected the legislative process. The State House remains closed, so all meetings are by appointment and on ZOOM. He encouraged us all to get to know our state and local officials; those people who represent us, so they become aware of what is important to us. It does make a difference!
We watched a short video on the training sessions that MALCP held at Essex Technical and Agricultural school. Joe Szczechowicz, Steve Bukoff, Chris Ford, Bill Dixon, Jake Arsenault and Luke Ford developed a Green Careers Curriculum with input from Jason Lanier and Austin Marsteller, then taught the students in the classroom and on the field about turf and the Lawn Care industry. Students and our team successfully renovated a designated lawn area in front of the school. It was a tremendous success!
Our thanks for extraordinary effort to move MALCP forward this year goes to the Essex Training Sessions group! Thank you!
And many thanks to our outgoing President, Steve Bukoff. Steve served for 4 years. He led us through the pandemic, focused on updating Administrative issues, establishing greater Committee communication and accomplishment. Steve has tremendous energy which he freely infused into MALCP projects! Thank you, Steve!
We welcome incoming President, Joe Szczechowizc! Joe spearheaded the Essex project and has worked hard on legislative issues for us.
