Turfgrass Day (Thursday, Feb 27) at the General Assembly was a tremendous success! Many thanks to Brad Copenhaver (Virginia Agribusiness Council), Gil Grattan (made sure the seeds we distributed were delivered to the General Assembly Building), and the other folks who gave up a day to inform decision makers about the value of turfgrass: Joe Belmonte, Wes Bray, Kevin Cooper, Harry Delyannis, Gil Grattan, Jimmy Rodgers, Christian Sain and Steve Smith.
Here are a few of the highlights:
- distributed VTC logo'ed seed (3 lb bags) to members of the General Assembly and members of the Governor's cabinet (a short info piece about turfgrass and an invitation to turfgrass field day was delivered with each bag)
- three persons were able to spend twenty minutes with the Lieutenant Governor (Ralph Northam) - he graciously gave of his time and expressed interest in attending the Virginia Beach Field Day
- three others persons had a great visit with Senator McWaters
- When the Senate was in session, Sen. McWaters introduced members of Virginia Turfgrass Council and mentioned some good things about our industry. The Lt. Governor (in his role as President of the Senate) echoed the Senator's remarks and added we work for turfgrass care that is good for the environment.
