John Deere Volunteerism in India

edge
I’ve had the great honor and pleasure of visiting several projects that John Deere is funding to improve the communities around Pune, India.  This time I was able to visit some projects that were worked on by John Deere employees as a day of volunteering. 296 employees from the Technology Center of India and John Deere Pune Works put in a day of volunteering at a number of sites around Sanaswadi, India. Here are a few photos.

Brian Harman Wins the John Deere Classic

edgeThe John Deere Classic kicked off this week … and I had the pleasure of helping the John Deere Classic Tournament with a few photos. Hopefully you’ve seen a few of these on the John Deere Classic Facebook and/or twitter feeds.

The John Deere Classic has really made a name for itself as the tournament to give young golfers their start. Jordan Spieth last year and now Brian Harman this year. Brian's win marks the 20th time a player scored their first PGA win at the Quad Citiesbased tournament.

Check out my photos on the links below.

IT Leadership Community Service

edgeThe John Deere Global IT Leadership Team dedicated the afternoon with a Community Service Project at Arrowhead Ranch to help celebrate John Deere’s 175th anniversary in business. The Arrowhead Ranch staff was very organized, easy to work with, and was very happy to have us there to help. We broke into 6 teams and did a wide variety of clean up activities including: weeding, tree trimming, painting, pond cleaning, brick edging removal, workshop cleaning, and a few other activities. Arrowhead ranch kept us hydrated with water, sodas, and an ice cream break. The entire team worked very hard and it was a very satisfying endeavor.

After the Community Service Project, we caravanned to the John Deere Construction Demo site to socialize, eat dinner, have a few drinks, and play a few games of corn bag toss. Here are a few photos of the days activities.

TPC at Deere Run

edgeThe John Deere Classic is now just 56 days away. I thought I’d stop out at the golf course and grab a few photos of the clubhouse and course. Take a look.

John Deere Classic Portfolio

edgeThe John Deere Classic is now a short 2 months away and I thought it’d be appropriate to share a few photos from previous John Deere Classic Tournaments. This photo of Steve Stricker with the John Deere Classic trophy was from 2010 when he scored his 2nd John Deere Classic win. Last year he won again and I’m sure he’ll be gunning for his 4th straight John Deere Classic victory this year.

Here are a few of my favorite John Deere Classic photos.

And … of course … a few panoramas of Deere Run decked out for the John Deere Classic. Just click on these and “tour the course”.

Project "Can Do" Combine

edgeThe Project “Can Do” Combine in the John Deere Pavilion.

Over 300,000 cans, hundreds of volunteers, one very worthy cause.

Here are a few 360 Panoramas of the John Deere Pavilion in Moline, IL with the Project “Can Do” Combine on display. This is a life size combine sculpture that measures 80 feet long, 60 feet wide, and 16 feet tall and is constructed entirely from cans of food. On December 11th, 2011 this sculpture will be torn down and all the food will be donated to the local Food Bank ... enough food to feed 150 families for an entire year.

I’ve been wanting to do some panoramas of the John Deere Pavilion and this seemed like a perfect time. Click on the poster print below to view the panorama.

And ... a few stills are available here.
