Cape Cod Landscape Association Awarding $8,500 in Scholarships to 2015 Recipients

May 27, 2015, Hyannis, MA … The Board of Directors of the Cape Cod Landscape Association is pleased to announce that they are awarding a total of $8,500 in scholarships for 2015.  The Mike Stacy Memorial Scholarships are awarded to Cape Cod students who will pursue a career in the green industry and the Toolship Scholarships are awarded to a son or daughter of CCLA member(s) to be used towards furthering their education in any area of study.

The recipients of this year’s Mike Stacy Memorial Scholarships and Toolship Scholarships are:

  • Ben Barattini of Osterville to attend Massachusetts Maritime Academy
  • Adam Huber of Brewster to attend Worcester Poly Technical
  • Courtney New of South Dennis to attend George Washington University
  • Christopher Wingard of Brewster to attend Tufts University
  • Jared Jasie of South Dennis to attend Rochester Institute of Technology
  • Alexandra Faszewski of Marstons Mills to attend Lasell College
  • Dana Milkey of South Dennis to attend Lasell College
  • Genny Paige of Yarmouth Port to attend Elms College
  • Breanna Whitney of South Chatham to attend University of Massachusetts at Amherst
  • Matt Ladner of Sandwich to attend Paul Smith’s College.

The CCLA scholarship fund is in honor of Mike Stacy, a native of Cape Cod, active member of CCLA and owner of Mike Stacy Landscaping.  Mr. Stacy passed away in August of 1989.  Lacking a formal education in horticulture, Mr. Stacy was acutely aware of the importance of continually expanding his knowledge and appreciated the educational and professional opportunities gained through his involvement with CCLA.  It is fitting that others be afforded the opportunity to further their education and careers through this fund in his name.

Funds for the scholarships are raised by CCLA’s Annual Golf Tournament to benefit the Mike Stacy Memorial Fund. This year’s Golf Tournament is set for Saturday, September 26, 2015, at the Hyannis Golf ClubSponsorships are available.  Registration for the tournament will open soon. Cape Cod Landscape Association is a 501 c3 – registered non-profit.

URGENT LEGISLATIVE ACTION: Contact your legislator and encourage a delay in the Mandated Sick Leave Law until 1/1/2016

MRAAs you know, voters approved a ballot question that mandates paid sick leave for all employees of employers with 11 or more employees. This law is scheduled to go into effect on July 1, 2015.

 

Many employers remain unsure of all of the necessary steps to ensure compliance because the final regulations will not be ready until late June or early July. In addition, posters and informational documents are not yet available.  It is virtually impossible to implement such a wide sweeping regulation that impacts the entire Massachusetts workforce in such a short time frame.

 

In order to prevent mistakes regarding eligibility, time accrual, record keeping, notice, integration with other time-off and leave programs, the development of sick leave related policies and procedures, and to avoid litigation risk, we believe that a delay till January is necessary and reasonable.

 

Your elected officials need to hear from you. For maximum impact, all owners and their managers should write, call or email their state reps and senators. Your elected officials live in your communities and they visit your restaurants.

 

Click here to find your State Rep and State Senator. Call or email and encourage them to delay the Paid Sick Leave implementation until January 1, 2016.
