This week’s Friday Morning Message: 2017 Membership Brunch | November Program | December Holiday Luncheon | YOTO Holiday Cards for Gift Bags | Food Bank Collection | Fall Festival Arts & Crafts Show | TWOQC “Spice Things Up” for YOTO | Not Receiving FMM’s? | Upcoming Events
The Membership Brunch was a smashing success – witches and pumpkins, oh my! The Big Band Sounds of Green Valley was certainly a big sound and had us dancing in the aisles. The brunch was busy with membership renewals and seating sales for attendance at the Holiday Luncheon along with many other opportunities that members were able to take advantage of. Brunch Photos
Monday, November 13 at 6:30 Sharon Resnick Anderson will present Women in American History.

As an undergraduate Sharon majored in religious studies, philosophy and women’s studies.

The holiday menu for the Luncheon will be: Roasted turkey breast with mashed potatoes (gravy served on both the turkey and the potatoes), cranberry walnut dressing, homemade cranberry sauce will be on the table, and rolls & butter. Dessert will be Gingerbread cookies with icing and red & green sprinkles.
As an extra holiday treat, we will be raffling off adorable gingerbread men center pieces at the Holiday Luncheon. There will be one of the gingerbread statues on display at the November program. You will want to purchase lots of raffle tickets so you can take one home with you for the holidays.
If you want to sponsor a YOTO student and did not get a Holiday Gift Bag name and info at the membership brunch you still have time. Names and student information are available in the TWOQC box outside Diane Quinn’s door, 2276 E Skywalker Way. All you need to do is select a card and follow the instructions inside.
You can participate even if you will not be attending the December 11 holiday program. Simply get your gift bag to Diane’s house prior to Dec 11. A recap of the 2016 December luncheon and YOTO gift bag donations.
Suggested gifts: If your student likes movies, video games or music, think about a gift card from Walmart or Target. That way you don’t have to guess about their tastes and they can select what they would like.
