Columbia, MD (PRWEB) July 20, 2015
Global design software developer Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., a member of the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), will participate in today’s Renewal & Remembrance event at Arlington National Cemetery. This annual event brings members from across the U.S. together to improve the grounds of the historic cemetery.
Entering its 19th year, Renewal & Remembrance is the largest landscape industry day of service in the country. The event is organized by the NALP (formerly the Professional Landcare Network), a lawn and landscape association representing more than 100,000 industry professionals who create and maintain healthy green spaces. Each year, the NALP coordinates hundreds of volunteers who donate their time mulching, upgrading sprinklers, cabling and installing lightning protection for the trees, pruning, planting, liming and aerating the soil at Arlington National Cemetery.
"Our members look forward to this opportunity each year to give back to the individuals who made personal sacrifices for their country," said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, NALP CEO. "We consider it a privilege to be able to volunteer our time and talents to improve the health and beauty of the grounds at Arlington National Cemetery, one of our nation’s most sacred places."
For the sixth year in a row, Nemetschek Vectorworks employees and their families will gather during the Renewal & Remembrance at Arlington National Cemetery to lend a hand.
"We feel fortunate to be located so close to this historical landmark and have the ability to make an impact on its preservation," said Eric Gilbey, PLA, landscape industry specialist at Nemetschek Vectorworks. "Every year, our participation is a humbling act of pulling up our sleeves to honor those who've fallen while defending our country."
Joining NALP to support the event are members of the Professional Grounds Management Society and the National Hispanic Landscape Alliance. The event receives support from lead sponsors Caterpillar, Inc. and New Holland Construction.
