This week’s Friday Morning Message: TWOQC Volunteer Opportunities | September Program: YOTO | October Brunch | Oktoberfest: Tickets, Baskets, & Glasses | Clothing Drive: Moving Boxes | YOTO Updates | Upcoming Events
We would not be the organization we are without membership volunteers!
♥ Have you ever wanted to be involved with the TWOQC Board? Now is your opportunity to! We are looking for someone who enjoys writing short articles about what is happening with TWOQC. The title for this position is 1st VP/Publicity. The current person is willing to train and help when needed. If this is something you would like to know about contact Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
♥ We still need two volunteers to take orders for TWOQC T-shirts and visors at the table at our monthly programs. This only involves about 30 minutes one time per month. Please contact Carol at email@example.com for more information.
TWOQC September program will be held on Monday, September 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the Madera Ballroom. Daniel Armenta from «Youth on Their Own» will be the featured speaker. This is your opportunity to learn more about this program and get answers to any questions you may have.
Do you have your seat reserved for the October Brunch?
The table/seating template is available at «THIS LINK».
As of Friday morning the following seats are open and ready for you to join us for this fun event: Table #16 – 8 seats are available and all tables #20 and above are open.
Please contact Nancy Jacobs at (970) 946-3910 to reserve your seat(s). Nancy will also be selling October Brunch seats at the September program on the 25th. We would love to see all of you there.
BRUNCH MENU: Egg salad filled croissant, melon salad and an apple crumb
cupcake with goblin glaze. The special drink will be a Black Russian with spider on the side.
If you choose, you may wear a costume, or wear your black and orange — it’s the Halloween season!
Sunday, October 29 · 4:00-7:00 p.m. in Madera Ballroom
Last week we talked about food, this week it’s the fun. The Bouncing Czechs, Tucson’s polka band, will provide music for listening and dancing.
In addition to food and fun, there will be a 50/50 raffle as well as a raffle for gift baskets.
- Tickets for the Oktoberfest gala are $30 per person
- 50/50 raffle tickets: 6 for $5, 14 for $10, and 30 for $20
- Come see us for your tickets on September 18 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the lobby of Madera Clubhouse Grill
Checks should be made payable to TWOQC Charity Account. Remember, you can purchase tickets for your spouse, significant other, friends, or if you want complete strangers for this fun-filled evening.
Just a note: Those wishing to sit with friends at tables of ten should purchase tickets together. To expedite ticket purchase, please bring a typed or printed list of names if you are buying multiple tickets.
Both large and small baskets are needed for the raffle to be held during «Oktoberfest». Please bring them to the program on September 25 and place them on the Scholarship table at the rear of the ballroom. If you are not attending the program, baskets may be delivered to the home of Marilyn Beim, 595 N. Yucca Butte Lane. «map»
The Scholarship Committee is considering offering Pilsner beer glasses for sale to support its scholarship program. You would not only get a 16 oz. keepsake glass with the club logo in green on one side but also a free fill of a craft beer at the «Oktoberfest» on October 29 for only $8. Unfortunately the glasses are only sold in lots of 72 so we want to make sure we have a sufficient number for all interested persons but we also do not want to have too many.
If you think this is something you would be interested in purchasing, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, September 20 so we can get them ordered in time to ensure delivery in time for the «Oktoberfest».
MOVING BOXES NEEDED!
We are in need of small and medium size moving boxes in good usable condition. The consistent size of moving boxes is preferred as they stack better in the Quail Creek catering truck that is used to transport most of the donations.
If you are able to help, please contact Laura at 625-4033 or email email@example.com.
Diane Quinn and Sue Ann Obremski visited YOTO on Sept 8 to share a draft of the cookbook being created for YOTO students.
During the visit they dropped off hundreds of small spice packets created by members of the YOTO committee and designed to help the students enhance their cooking experience. Several members of YOTO’s staff, particularly Nicola Hartman, YOTO’s Executive Director, expressed their great appreciation for the support TWOQC and its membership is giving YOTO. It is clear that our efforts are appreciated and making a difference for these hard working students.
Also during this visit, Sue Ann presented Kristyn Connor (Director of Development) a gift for her baby on behalf of The Women of Quail Creek. Kristyn’s thank-you note is posted on the «2017 Thank You’s» page.
