Congratulations to longtime NESTMA member David Pinsonneault, CSP, CPRP, CPWP-M, Public Works Director at the Town of Lexington, MA who was awarded the Harry C. Gill Memorial Award at the SFMA annual conference in Daytona Beach, Florida. Dave is a past president of both SFMA and NESTMA, and a very active supporter of the sports turf profession on the local and national level. The Harry C. Gill Memorial Award was established to honor an individual for their outstanding ability and commitment to the sports field industry and to acknowledge their dedication to SFMA. Nominations for the Gill are made by SFMA members and acknowledge an individual for long-standing service to the SFMA. The award itself is a rather unique piece of art, depicting a groundskeeper armed with the tools of his trade. • 10 • New England BLADE • Spring 2024
