The replacement mower has broken 3 times in 2 weeks, we decided to replace it with a brand-new mower at the meeting for kid’s camp. We found a riding mower for $936 with a 5-year warranty, Martha paid for the mower and the club will make payments back to her.
J&D will remove the tree by the garage for $750 and clean up all the mess. Martha called 3 places for quotes and decide on J&D because of their reputation. The club will pay $500, and Martha and Toad donated the other $250.
