We are pleased to announce our new caretaker, Oliver Lee, whom we all affectionately know as Junior. Oliver has been the Grounds Caretaker at Hope Plantation since 1991, while also working for Perdue Farms. He has been the go to fellow for help with almost anything, as he knows more about the infrastructure on the plantation than anyone. He has recently retired from Perdue and has become the full time on-site Caretaker, while continuing to be Grounds Caretaker. In his spare time (if he can find any!), Oliver enjoys tennis and making 30 – 60 mile bike rides around the county. Be sure and wave a thank you if you see him biking by! We are so blessed to have you! Welcome Junior !!!
