Coupon clipping party is today, April 24, at 9 a.m. at the Connell sisters’ house, 539 Ramos Lane. You will be finished by noon. Please help if you can spare a couple hours. Great snacks, too, thanks to the hostesses.
Our April 27 meeting at 6:30 p.m. will feature Karen Pomroy, Founder of Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary. Attendees will learn the heartwarming story of Gulliver, the mascot and symbol for the sanctuary, a spirited horse that Karen rescued in 2004 and brought back from sickness to health. Her success with rehabilitating Gulliver and other wild horses inspired Karen to start the Amado sanctuary. Anyone with a love of horses, or any other animals for that matter, will be touched by her presentation. Door prizes will be given.
If you are shopping this weekend, please consider picking up some extra groceries for the Green Valley/Sahuarita Food Bank. Even though the annual Feinstein Challenge fell through, the Food Bank found a group people who will match donations. Peanut butter, paper, cleaning, baby and hygiene items would make Food Bank customers very happy. You will also be able to make cash/check/credit card donations at the meeting. Checks should be made payable to Green Valley Community Food Bank.
Thanks to all who wrote letters to the 72 WWI veterans who went on the Honor Flight on May 18. We turned in a record number of letters—899 to be exact. And thanks to Laurie Brown for fitting them in her suitcase.
The shower was a huge success. You can see all the photos on our website under Photo albums (click HERE).
In her thank you letter, Shower Chair Pam Rodgers said: “It truly takes a Village…‘Thank you’ is such a gracious phrase, yet somehow not quite eloquent enough to use in this case. I am not quite sure there is a phrase in the English language to use.”
You can read Pam’s complete letter under Thank You’s 2015 (click HERE).
Cookbooks will be on sale in the lobby on April 27 starting at 5:30 PM. If you need a hostess gift for family or friends as you head for cooler locations, a cookbook would make a nice gesture and show those who don’t live here what great cooks we have in our community.
Or maybe you need a Mother’s Day gift for your daughters. Just $15 each.
I will be leaving for a European River Cruise tomorrow morning and am not sure how the email access will be. If you have any questions, please direct them to Janice Pell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To those who will be leaving us for the summer, safe travels. Thanks for all your support for our programs and projects while you were with us.
