    Thank You Ray Shaw

    A sincere “Thank You” to Ray Shaw for his time, know-how and generous financial donation to the Madison Meadows Golf Course. This past week, Ray and his crew spent two days spraying every fairway, tee box and all of the surrounding golf course grounds for dandelions and other noxious weeds. His efforts have saved Madison Meadows considerable time and money and we sincerely appreciate it. Thank you, Mr. Shaw.
