The next Honor Flight leaves Tucson International Airport on American Airlines (AA) Flight #1228 on September 12 at 8:15 a.m. One of our members, Joette Schenk, is a guardian on this flight. She suggests that we get to the airport between 6:30 and 7 a.m. to wish the veterans safe travels and thank them for their service. They load the Honor Flight travelers before everyone else. Reimbursement for parking is generally available at the airport. They return on AA Flight 81 on September 14 at 7:50 p.m. They are the last ones off the plane so if you get there at 7:45, you will have time to get your parking ticket validated and still be ready to welcome them home.
Thanks to all who wrote the letters to the veterans. Kay Robinson received 341 at her home.
The Scholarship Committee held its first meeting this week and they are busy developing the criteria for the scholarship and the application form. Both the Walden Grove and Sahuarita High Schools were delighted to hear we were planning to offer scholarships.

WOW–what generosity with the toiletries, sunscreen, razors, and Chapstick for the homeless veterans that you brought to our last meeting. I can tell a lot of you have been travelling. The toiletries weighed 31.4 lbs. and note cards, another 5.2 lbs. There were also 29 calendars and some wrapping paper donated. Plus I got 30 rolls of toilet paper. I was glad they had a cart available when I took them to the VA!
Our numbers grew when one of the stores returned some books to us, plus there were some good books in a box with some damaged books. Latest count is 29.
If you want to purchase a cookbook before the meeting on September 28, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will make arrangements to get it to you.
$15 cash or checks payable to TWOQC Charity Account.
