Abstract/Contents:Discussses volunteer maintenance at Wamego Country Club in Wamego, Kansas. States that "since its opening in 1920 as a Chick Trout-designed nine-hole course, Wamego [Country Club] has relied on its uncommonly benevolent members, many of whom today hail from and live in [Wamego]." Also states that "when added up, the value of members' time and labor spent getting their hands dirty, not to mention opening their wallets to the tune of nearly $1 million, is virtually incalculable for a club whose annual working budget is just under $600,000." Mentions a 2002 expansion project that "was done at cost...If it wasn't done by members at cost, it wouldn't have happened. [The club] basically built that whole course on undisturbed ground of solid trees for somewhere around $1.1 million. No one thought it could be done for less than $4 million." Also mentions a 2005 project to complete the golf car trail. States that "in addition to the quarter-million dollars in cash donations that supported many back nine amenities, the club decided to garner more funds with commemorative plaques to members who purchased an item."
