The Association bid farewell to Director of Operations Mike Morrow on Friday, September 30. Mike began with the Association in March 2015 and was trained to assist in the transition of Sandy Healy, the Operations Manager who retired in October 2015. During his time with the Association, Mike brought about many efficient changes in maintenance policies and practices.
Mike remitted his resignation as Director of Operations in September to pursue a new opportunity. A spokesperson for the Association says, “As Director of Operations, Mike was an invaluable asset in strengthening the Operational structure. We thank Mike for his service to the community and the Association.”
The Association held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Outrigger Park on September 30 and Mike was given the honor of cutting the ribbon in recognition of his last day of employment with the Association.
The new playground design is a ship-themed play set complete with wind sails and a matching swing set.
