Honor Flight in April
Eight WWII Veterans and 17 Korea War Veterans will be taking an all expenses-paid journey of commemoration, reminiscence and reflection April 23rd to see the WWII Memorial and others in Washington DC. on the Honor Flight.
After a three day trip of camaraderie and memory making, our veterans have a “secret” Mail Call – the very same kind of mail that kept their spirits alive during the war. Please participate in letting our veterans know how much their service has meant to us and that we honor them by writing letters to the 25 attending this flight. Place the letter in an envelope addressed to the veteran. CLICK HERE for the list. Place them in the box outside Kay Robinson’s home by April 11th: 898 N Kenneth Drive, Quail Creek.
April 25th Program · 6:30pm
Cheri Romanowski of Cheri’s Desert Harvest ::: Cheri’s all-natural products are made from fresh fruits and vegetables indigenous to the Sonoran Desert. Only the freshest prickly pear cactus fruit, citrus, honey, sweet peppers, and hot chile peppers are used in her preserves. Come hear Cheri talk about the fruit that is hand-harvested at the peak of ripeness and her quick mixes formulated with wholesome ingredients.
$cholarship Night ::: During the April 25th program, you will meet Carly Frieders and Kayla Christiansen, the impressive young awardees of TWOQC scholarships. They will be joined by their families and high school counselors. Carly and Kayla will provide a snapshot of their future goals, and what the scholarship means to them. This will be an exciting moment for all!
Your support of the project was astonishing and plans are in the making for the 2016/17 fundraising season. Watch for forthcoming photos of the girls.
