In response to our thanks, one member down played the donation as not that big of a deal, and said, "we just wanted to do the right thing."
Well, for the 32 members of the Redlands club, it is a big deal, without which we wouldn't be able to acquire any such piece of equipment; It's simply too expensive. Since Newport Harbor is 65 miles from Redlands, very few Newport Harbor members will probably ever see the difference the roller will make; but, there are 5 clubs that comprise the Citrus League that will not only see, but also, very much appreciate the improvement of our green.
Newport Harbor Lawn Bowling Club, thank you for the roller. Thank you for seeing the big picture, and not just the bottom line. Thank you for leading by example and showing your commitment to promote and improve the sport of bowls, which we all enjoy so much.
President, Redlands Lawn Bowling Club
