Golf & Country Club superintendent Dennis Piccolo was one of about 200 attendees at the February Golf Industry Show in New Orleans who volunteered their time to help Habitat For Humanity construct eight homes in the area. In addition to helping build walls and floors, Piccolo also laid sod at his particular work site. The volunteer workers were told they had done about one week's worth of work in a mere two days. The City of New Orleans, La. is trying to rebuild itself after the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
