About a dozen Nickle Electrical employees volunteered to rebuild a mini golf course at Easter Seals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore location in Georgetown.
There was a dilapidated course on site in need of an overhaul, so volunteers spent a Friday in May tearing down and disposing of the old course to make way for a brand new 16-foot by 20-foot course with six holes. Volunteers also painted and refurbished the centerpiece of the putt-putt course – Stella the Seahorse.
“It was really great to work together and build camaraderie while also donating time to the greater good of our community,” said Nickle President/CEO Steve Dignan. “We’re happy to have participated in the project so visitors to Easter Seals can enjoy outdoor activities.”
The non-profit organization’s mission is to provide exceptional services, education, outreach, and advocacy so that people living with autism and other disabilities can live, learn, work, and play in our communities.
“We’re so excited about all of [Nickle’s] work,” said Linda Forte, Easter Seals’ community relations coordinator. “What a wonderful gift you have given us. Our participants will enjoy many hours of fun and relaxation on the ‘green,’ creating special memories.”
Representative Ruth Briggs King also stopped by the site to recognize Nickle volunteers. In an email to the team she said the project is an “awesome and appreciated gift to Easter Seals and our community.”
