READY TO LEARN ABOUT SPIRALIZING?
Join us at the August program where Randy Wade (owner, Tumacookery) will be doing a cooking demonstration and tasting, also offering his tips, tricks and taboos of spiralizing. This method of turning vegetables and fruits into noodles allows cooks of all skill levels to whip up creative, healthy, and delicious meals. Spiralizing offers great flavor without the processed ingredients. Mark your calendar so you don’t miss out:
TWOQC programs are offered to club members and first-time attendees only.
SEPTEMBER HONOR FLIGHT
Get ready! September 17-19 will be the 22nd Honor Flight to Washington, DC for WWII, Korean War and Vietnam Veterans from the Tucson area to see the war memorials. Every 90 seconds a WWII veteran dies and most will never have the opportunity to see the Washington, DC memorial dedicated in their honor. The Tucson Honor Flight team has requested that the residents of Quail Creek and TWOQC write generic “to a Vet” letters to the Veterans traveling on this flight. This is our opportunity to thank the veterans for their service.
During the return trip, veterans are surprised with “mail call”. The letters given during “mail call” are very meaningful and a blessing to each veteran. Please start writing! Letters may be delivered to Kay Robinson, 898 N. Kenneth Drive by August 29 or to TWOQC August program. Questions? Call Kay at 495-4173.
Thanks to all who brought donations for the homeless and hospitalized veterans to the July Monday night program. Peggy took 11.6 lbs. of toiletries to the VA on August 3. She also had a carload of men’s clothing generously donated by two recent widows. Both said they felt their husbands would have wanted their clothing to go to the veterans.
If you are starting to get more 2017 calendars in the mail than you can possibly use, rather than throw them in the trash or recycle bin, please save them for the hospitalized veterans. Those being hospitalized long term and those living in the nursing home facility really like getting them.
We received two thank you notes from the VA, one for all the items turned in for the babies born to formerly homeless veterans, and one for donations of toiletries and notecards. We also received a thank you addressed to The Women of Quail Creek from one of the formerly homeless moms who recently had a baby girl. All three are on the website. [2016 THANK YOU NOTES]
