Friday Morning Message


"Unless you plan to take alternate transportation - you'd better get your bus ticket today!"

“Unless you plan to take alternate transportation – be sure to get your bus ticket ASAP!”

Tickets for our annual field trip will be for sale in the Madera lobby from 10-noon on March 12. Cost is $40 for members and $45 for guests. If you heard Shannon’s talk at our meeting last Monday, you know you will be in for a treat when we visit the DeGrazia museum and grounds. The field trip will take place on TUESDAY, March 31. Busses will leave the Madera parking lot at 9 a.m. and return somewhere between 4 & 4:30 p.m. We will have two stops—the DeGrazia Museum and the Miniatures Time Machine Museum. We will meet together at Trattoria Pina for a Spaghetti Bolognese lunch with a chocolate éclair for dessert. (Visit Monthly Meeting page)


Baby items  If you have baby items you wish to donate, you may take them to Pam Rodgers’ house at 2640 E Sawyer Road. Keep your eye out for diaper coupons in Sunday’s paper. A new Mom can never have too many diapers and wipes! There is also a drop box at the Anza Fitness Center where donations can be dropped. There will be a drop box at Madera starting on March 1.

Mom’s Bags  If you have donations for the Moms’ bags, please take them to Laura Colbert at 2040 E Cypress Canyon Drive. Items needed include age appropriate Jewelry – remember the moms–to-be are mostly in their 20s–lotions – hand, body, facial, Kleenex mini packs; lip balm; disposable razors; shave cream; hand sanitizer (purse size); emery boards; nail polish; scarves; nail file kits; key chains; compact mirrors;  samples, i.e., from Arbonne, Avon, Bath & Body Works. We do have enough Loofahs (scrubbies), watches, rings.

If you are interested in participating on the baby shower committee, meetings have been scheduled for March and April, and dates are posted in the Calendar

Shirts have been ordered but if you find you want one to wear on the field trip on March 31, please let me know ASAP so I can get the order in.

The shirts are $18 and come in sizes Small to 2XX. I found they run small but since they are a blend, they do not shrink.


Cookbooks will be on sale from 10 a.m. – noon on March 12 in the lobby. They will make great hostess gifts if you are visiting family and friends this coming summer. They will also be on sale during the Discover Quail Creek event on March 7.

Rena Craine and Noreen Melchert sell cookbooks prior to the February meeting.

The next Honor Flight for World War II veterans will take place on April 18. At this time we are asking for letters thanking the WWII veterans for their service. Would the USA be the great place that it is if it weren’t for the sacrifices that these men and women made for our country? Here is the list as we know it right now. You might want to start the letters and add the names of the veterans later, just in case there are changes to this list—as can happen when the veterans are in this age group.

(Click to enlarge list of names.)

Letters can be turned in to Kay Robinson at 898 Kenneth Drive or left at the Concierge desk. (Name highlighted in Pink is a female; those highlighted in Green are veterans living in Green Valley.)


  • Total for February 2015 = $38,096
  • Total 2015 Year-to-Date = $80,762
  • Total Project-to-Date = $1,232,945

The next coupon clipping party will be Friday, March 27, at 9 AM at the Connell sisters’ house, 539 Ramos Lane. You will be finished by noon. Please help if you can spare a couple hours. Or in the meantime, stop by their house to see if there are any coupons to be clipped.

Coupons to be sent overseas in March should expire February 15 or later. Those for the National Guard should expire April 15 or later.
