A Huge Thank You to Tumacookery!
Thanks to Randy Wade (owner, Tumacookery) and his assistant Jeri Hoyle for entertaining us at this past Monday evening’s program. Together they provided a cooking demonstration and tasting, along with 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.
Randy is offering a $5.00 discount on any cooking class this month for any TWOQC Member. For those of you that did not receive a hard copy of the recipe and Tumacookery’s upcoming cooking classes please find them by clicking on this link: [Tumacookery Handouts]
Giving a big thank you to Diane Quinn, TWOQC 1st Vice President
I heard so many good comments not only about the coffee and presentation but also how you conducted such a fun evening. Job well done!
More thanks and a big applause are directed to all of you that took your much appreciated time to write letters and cards to the Veterans that are traveling on the upcoming Honor Flight. Kay Robinson submitted 375 pieces of correspondence that will be read and treasured by the Veterans as they return home from their very emotional visit to the monuments in Washington D.C. They may have fought the battle many years ago but they are not forgotten. Please be at the airport for their send off or return if at possible and show them even more how much they are treasured for their service to their country! Send off is September 17 by 5:30am at the Southwest Airlines area and their return home is Monday, Sept. 19 at 8:00pm.
Thank you to the volunteers that helped greet and assisted with name tags at this past Monday program:
Joyce Walton · Barbara Bird · Linda Bradley · Judy Collins · Linda Matthews
We appreciate you!
Clothing & Household Goods Drive for Homeless Veterans
As you start your fall cleaning and go through your kitchen cabinets and drawers, please consider donating any gadgets, cookware, dishes or glassware you no longer use to the Clothing & Household Goods Drive on October 15. Kitchenware is a great boon to the homeless veterans who will be moving into housing in the months ahead.
A nice thank you was received from the VA for toiletries, calendars, notecards and slippers that you so generously donated at the July program. [2016 Thank You Notes]
Our fashion show to raise funds for cancer research and support services for those in the local area will be held on February 24. This year’s theme is the Power of Purple. If crafters could think about making items in purple for the raffle baskets, we would really appreciate it. Suggestions include jewelry, scarves, ceramic pieces, art glass, and place mats. We won’t be collecting raffle prizes until January but you might try thinking of ideas while you are stuck inside during our muggy weather.
We are still looking for some cupcake stands for the Fashion Show on February 24. If anyone has any they can lend us at that time, please let Carol Shelton know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
