Montgomery County 4-H Auction

The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair held its annual 4-H livestock sale on Friday, August 19th. D & A Dunlevy Landscapers enjoys this opportunity every year to show support for the Montgomery County 4-H program. The 4-H program exists to "provide a supportive setting for boys and girls to mature into competent, caring, and responsible people through volunteerism and the learning of valuable life skills." The annual auction at the fair follows a week of 4-H'ers having the opportunity to share knowledge, skills, and products through exhibitions and demonstrations. Lamb, steer, and swine that were raised and shown by 4-H'ers are auctioned. Funds help cover costs of raising the animals and allow 4-H'ers to continue raising animals the following year. D & A Dunlevy Landscapers continually purchases animals in the auction to support the 4-H program and the youth involved.

Surprise Home Makeover For Local Pastor and Wife

Last spring, Pastor Richard Fredericks, of Damascus Road Community Church, and his wife, Sallie, returned from a extended trip to find their family home completely renovated. Richard had requested two church members to work on the house while he was away and left money to cover the expenses. Nearly 100 people from community churches and organizations pitched in to help with the renovation, with volunteers stemming from multiple business trades. D & A Dunlevy Landscapers, Inc. has several ties to the Fredericks family and Damascus Road community, and eagerly joined in the endeavor. Our upper management staff spent a Saturday removing an old retaining wall and grading the front yard. The pool area was also entirely renovated with new plantings. A thorough spring clean up and new sod topped off the entire project. The total completed home renovation was an estimated $90,000, which included volunteer labor and donated materials. The Fredericks family has given so much to the nearby community and D & A Dunlevy Landscapers enjoyed the opportunity to give back.
