The Brunch will be held on Monday, October 26 at 11 a.m.
If something has come up and you cannot attend, please give your ticket to another member and call Nancy Wilson at (520) 207-6830 to let her know who is substituting for you. If you cannot find someone to whom you can give a ticket, call Nancy since she may have some names on her Wait List.
- You are encouraged to bring a donation for the Food Bank. Besides food, paper, hygiene and cleaning products are always welcomed. Cash, checks, payable to GV/Sahuarita Food Bank and credit card donations will also be appreciated.
- If you will not be around to bring them on Saturday during the annual clothing drive, you may also bring donations of unopened toiletries, calendars, greeting and note cards to the Brunch and place them at one of the tables at the back of the Ballroom.
- If you are interested in supporting the Scholarship Fund, please bring change to feed the piggies!
- We will be taking sign-ups for volunteers for the Fashion Show scheduled for February 12 to raise funds for cancer research at the Brunch. Even if you contacted Nancy Jacobs in the past about being a model, you must officially sign up at the Brunch. Sign-up forms will be on each table.
- We will have the order forms available for the pink TWOQC polo shirts at the Brunch. Cost is $18 and payment is required when you place your order. Cash or checks payable to TWOQC Charity Account.
You may pay your 2016 dues when you come to the Brunch. We recommend that you complete your renewal form prior to the Brunch so it will make things go faster that morning.
- Forms are in TWOQC’s slot in the hallway as well as on the website.
- The Word document form on the website gives one the opportunity to type in the information. This makes it much easier for the membership and Internet team to get the email address right the first time.
- We also added a block on the membership form asking if you have any special talents/experience (e.g., writing, fund raising, decorating.) That information will help us if we ever need special help for one of our projects. [… Membership Form]
- Anyone paying now will have their dues paid until December 31, 2016.
