Here we are again the close of another year. What a roller coaster it has been. The fog seems to be lifting some, I hope things are better for all.
Through this year, we have been keeping you informed to what our Chapter and local Pioneer clubs are doing by using emails, constant contact, newsletters and mailing to help with that. I hope you have found this type of communication useful. If you need to update us with new contact information, please contact 1-855-890-9256 (M-F 6a-8p MT).
At our club levels, Hug-A-Bears are flourishing. In addition, our Lap Robe Project are being zealously made and mentoring our kids is back in the schools. For our holiday projects, New Mexico is having a Christmas gift giveaway for 37 needy children, So. Az is finishing up their stocking project for homebound citizens and Phx is stocking their Veteran’s Christmas gift shop again this year.
The Legacy West Group received a grant to buy wheelchairs for needy children. If you know of someone that needs one, please contact me and we will get a request started.
The chapter will also be giving out a scholarship again this year so look for details to come.
I wish you all a blessed and healthy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year.
President AZ/NM Chapter 66
Pioneers was given a bequest to specifically be used to help children who need a wheelchair and do not have the means to get one. We are hoping that if you know of a situation where Pioneers could help, you will reach out. Please contact our chapter President Barbara Palmer and tell her about the need. This would be a donation of the equipment (the wheelchair), not cash. This is the kind of situation where Pioneers do their best work. Barbara will submit the request to our Legacy West Directors to obtain the needed equipment. Do you know a child in need?
Pioneers Oral history project Michael – YouTube
Pioneers is working on an oral history project, and you may have recently gotten a post card about it. At the same time, the company who is preparing it will be verifying contact information for our Pioneer database. This is a legitimate project which benefits our Pioneer organization, and is a wonderful way to record our history in the voices of real Pioneers talking about Pioneer projects they have been involved in over the years. As a tribute to our 110-year history, please respond with a phone call to them. You will have the opportunity to preorder if you are interested, but there is no obligation to buy.
We are hoping this oral history will be a way to keep track of our stories, and if you have a story to tell, please consider relaying it.
Below is an example of the postcard that was mailed out, and here is a link to a you tube recording so you can hear what the oral history project is all about.
