About 20 volunteers braved a chilly wind and gray skies Saturday morning to help plant 22 new trees at Quail Ridge Golf Course.
“No one asked them — they just heard we were planting and showed up,” said Bill Tiedemann, general manager.
He and Jeff Stahman, superintendent of the city-owned course at 2801 Indiana Ave., are thankful for the countless hours logged by volunteers on projects — filling divots, removing weeds, planting flowers and more — throughout the 140-acre, 18-hole course.
