Thanks to all who joined us at the Green Valley Cemetery on Veteran’s Day to pay tribute to our Veterans. The ceremony was very moving and so special to the Veterans in attendance. Martha McSally addressed the crowd, there was a posting of the colors, wreath laying ceremony, and patriotic music by the Bavarian Brass Band. «Veteran’s Day Event Photos»
November TWOQC Program
Ballet Continental provided TWOQC with a real treat during Monday’s program. Twenty four dancers performed excerpts from the Nutcracker. Not only were the dancers talented, the costumes were both beautiful and fun. As an extra treat, Darby Downs performed the Prayer from Coppelia, Ballet Continental’s most recent show. «November program photos»

A HUGE thanks to all of you and our partners and friends at The Sahuarita Educational Enrichment Foundation! Our Veteran’s Appreciation Week fundraisers, the Gatekeepers concert and the Power Pack Attack basketball challenge, made possible two wonderful scholarships. These will be awarded to two women graduating from Sahuarita School District, one from Sahuarita High and one from Walden Grove. Our goal is to help them jumpstart their careers.
The Scholarship Committee wishes to extend “cheers” to those who purchased tickets to the concert and basketball game, to those who donated money, and to members and spouses who helped coordinate the events. This was a JOB WELL DONE! «Concert & Basketball Challenge Photos»
