In all probability you’re a retired mechanic ready to handle and attach the equipment; a retired farmer who misses the throb of a Fergie beneath your ft who may lend a hand with mowing or slashing.”
“Or you might want to merely donate to the membership to lend a hand offset the prices of keeping up our open areas.”
