MARCH FIELD TRIP: Reid Park Zoo
- Please be at the Madera Clubhouse at 8:30am for check-in and no later than 8:45am to board your bus.
- The buses will depart from the Clubhouse promptly at 9:00am on Monday, March 28, and return around 4:00pm.
- If you plan on purchasing tickets for margaritas or wine at lunch, please bring correct change as we will not be keeping a bank on the bus. Thanks for your help with this!
- There will be free time to visit the gift shop and/or explore the zoo on your own.
- Your bus “leader” will explain where you will need to be when.
The polo shirts in the style we have purchased in the past are on clearance with the only sizes available being small, medium and large. Peggy McGee is looking into another vendor that has the same style in the same color and in the same price range.
As soon as she hears something, we will let you know. If she can find another vendor in the next couple of days, we will see if they can be here in time for the zoo trip on March 28.
The Scholarship Committee is thrilled to announce the winners of the very first TWOQC Scholarships! Kayla Christiansen, from Sahuarita High School, and Caroline, Carly, Frieders from Walden Grove High School will each receive $1,000 scholarships to the post-secondary school of her choice.
Each winner is an outstanding student and an exemplary representative of her school. Involvement in both their schools and their communities is a core value of each of these young women. You will learn more about these impressive young women in the weeks to come. For now, plan on meeting them and hearing more about what these scholarships mean for their futures at our April program on April 25 at 6:30.

Coupons for National Guard should expire April 10th or later. They especially appreciate the restaurant coupons—it seems they tend to eat out after the weekend drills.

- Peggy Richmond (2731 E. Eba Court)
- Judy Poffenbarger (2390 E Bluejay Bluff Lane)
- Lois and Janet Connell (529 N. Ramos Lane)
REMINDER: There is no regular coupon program at this time. Please drop off coupons at Judy and Peggy’s houses before the end of the month. [SORTING COUPONS]
