3:14 p.m., March 18, 2013--For those looking to save a little money on lawn care in these tight financial times, the University of Delaware's Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity for agriculture, the Society of Automotive Engineers Club and the Engineering Technology Club are once again offering push lawn mower tune-up service on Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13, rain or shine.

The tune-up -- provided by trained students and alumni members of the clubs -- includes washing the mower, an oil change, spark plug replacement, air filter cleaning and blade sharpening. Service performed is tune-up only; no repairs will be undertaken and no riding mowers will be accepted.
