Doesn’t get any easier than that!
We would not be the organization we are without membership volunteers!
♥ We need just one more volunteer 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.
TWOQC September program will be held on Monday, September 25th 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.
Come Celebrate the Success of the YOTO School Supply Drive
Monday, September 25th is the final day to support the school supply drive. With Daniel Armenta speaking to the membership at the Monday program we would love to send him home with a car full of items for the students. Members are encouraged to bring items to the program from either the school supply list (click here: SCHOOL SUPPLIES LIST) or the mini-mall pantry list (click here: PANTRY ITEMS). Let’s continue to show YOTO students how much we want them to succeed.
FOUR WEEKS AND COUNTING – the day is Saturday, October 21!
The theme this year is “A Gift of Hope”. Is your ‘gift of hope’ still hanging in the closet or hiding out on that kitchen, closet or garage shelf? You have just four weeks to find that “hope” for our veterans.
Please bring your items to the program on Monday or if you need more information check out our website regarding the «VA Clothing Drive» or contact Laura Colbert at firstname.lastname@example.org or 625-4033.
Seating for the October Brunch on October 30th will be on sale at the September program on Monday. The price is $10.00 for members and $20.00 for first-time guests. If you are purchasing for multiple persons please have the names of each person when you purchase. The tables currently available are table 16, and tables 21 through 30. The table/seating template is available at «THIS LINK».
The brunch will include a short report highlighting how our funds are used to aid community needs. Please contact Nancy Jacobs at (970) 946-3910 to reserve your seats.
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! Hope to see each of you at this fun event!

Food… music… fun… 50/50 raffle, gift baskets raffle, pretzels and beer!
«Oktoberfest» tickets, the 50/50 raffle and pre-paid orders for items to be sold at the Crafts Fair will be available at the program on September 25. We will be at a table in the back of the room starting at 5:30 and again after the program. Remember the Bouncing Czechs, Tucson’s polka band will provide music for listening and dancing.

- Thermal totes: $7 each or 3 for $20

Craft Beer Talk: On October 23rd there will be a complimentary craft beer talk in the Madera Ballroom at 7:00 p.m. Not only will Barrio Brewery be on-hand to discuss the ins and outs of craft beer but they will be available to answer any questions should you decide that you make the best tasting beer around and just need a few pointers on how to make it even better. Complimentary is always nice but please remember this is part of TWOQC’s scholarship fundraising so a donation, either cash or check, would be appreciated.
To entice you even further, at the Barrio Brewery craft beer talk you will be able to purchase tickets for Oktoberfest, and the 50/50 raffle. As a very special overture Pilsner glasses will be available for $8 each. AND with each Pilsner glass purchase you will receive a FREE (there’s that word again) “one-time fill” at «Oktoberfest». What a deal!!!!
All checks should be made payable to TWOQC Charity Account.
T-shirt Pre-Orders: If you ordered polo shirts, aprons, or totes at the August program and did not pay for them at that time, please bring your money to the program on September 25. Checks for polo shirts should be payable to TWOQC. Cost is $20. For all the other items, make checks payable to TWOQC Charity Account. We have to place the order within the next week to ensure timely delivery so we appreciate prompt payment.
We will be taking pre-paid orders for the green shirts at the September 25 program. Cost is $20. Shirts will be delivered in time for the clothing drive should the volunteers want to wear one.
Pink Polo Shirts: It has been decided to replace the pink polo shirts with forest green shirts in the same style. The choice was made since green is the club’s color. Of course, if you have a pink shirt you may continue to wear it to our functions. We have a few pink polos left and will be selling them at a clearance sale price of $15.
Visors: We will be selling forest green visors with a gold quail at a back table at the program on the 25th. Cost is $10.
Hospitalized veterans’ needs: Books, playing cards, puzzle books, note cards and greeting cards, 2018 calendars in both wall and pocket styles.
Homeless veterans’ needs: unopened travel sized toiletries, toothpaste and brushes, razors and shaving cream, sun screen, water, snack bars. They are also requesting disposable plates, cups and utensils—packages may be opened. There is a desperate need for men’s and women’s underwear and socks in all sizes. Socks, underpants and sports bras must be new. Undershirts and other bras can be gently used. Due to space limitations, they will no longer be accepting summer clothing but would appreciate items meant for the cooler fall weather.
Pet needs: food, bedding, leashes, water dishes, toys, litter.
