SEPTEMBER PROGRAM: On Monday, September 25 at 6:30 p.m., Daniel Armenta from YOTO will be here to talk about one of our favorite charities.
The TWOQC members and others in the community have written 1,211 letters to the veterans that will be on the September 2nd Honor Flight #23. They have also included letters and notes to the guardians and flight staff. This is such a blessing to those traveling back from a memorable experience in Washington DC. The letters will bring tears to those who thought they had been forgotten. They will treasure and reread each one.
We have collected enough quilts to be presented at the orientation before the flight as a token of appreciation for their service. Someone also donated patriotic cup holders that will also be given at the orientation.
We have many loving and generous members in our community.
MULTIPLE WAYS TO SUPPORT YOTO
There are so many ways you can help support Youth On Their Own. If you are still gathering school supplies, please drop them off at the bin in the clubhouse. We will deliver them to YOTO. If you would rather contribute non-perishable food or full-size personal hygiene products, you may drop them off at Diane Quinn’s home, 2276 E. Skywalker Way (map) and leave them in the bin at her door. If you have a recipe that we can add to the YOTO student cookbook, send it to «firstname.lastname@example.org».
Questions about how to help YOTO? Contact Diane at «email@example.com».
CLOTHING DRIVE FOR HOMELESS VETERANS NEEDS YOU!

If you can help us out on Saturday, October 21 for about three hours please contact Laura Colbert at «firstname.lastname@example.org» or (520) 625-4033.

2018 FASHION SHOW: The Colors of Cancer
GOLD represents skin cancer. Did you know that each year 3 million people are diagnosed with skin cancer and 8 million are diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma? Gaining an early detection is vital and again the risk rises as we age.
BLACK represents the color for melanoma. Please check your skin often. Have your doctor check any spots on your regular visits. The A–B–C–D–E‘s are an important way to assess certain marks on your skin:
- Color change
- Diameter (any mole or skin lesion that is larger than a standard pencil eraser indicates possible skin cancer)
- Evolution of the mole
We are in need of additional volunteers for the Fashion Show on February 7, 2018 to help make «The Colors of Cancer» a huge success. If interested and available, please e-mail «email@example.com».
CAR WASH SUPPORTING NAVAL JROTC
Thanks to all who supported the Sahuarita High School Naval JROTC car wash on August 12. About 75 cadets scrubbed cars in an attempt to get off all the monsoon related splashes. One member reported that the cadets were able to remove the mud that built up when she drove through a muddy wash that the commercial facility missed. The funds donated will go towards uniform accessories, competition fees, and providing water during the warm weather months for outside activities.
