LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
I want to welcome everyone back from our summer break. I hope everyone had a nice, fun, safe summer. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for some cooler weather.
I have some news about our monthly luncheons I would like to share. In September, we will still be going to Golden Corral but starting in October and November, we are going to try a new place that I am sure the people who live on the Eastside will be happy about. It is called The Forum at Tucson. It is located at 2500 N Rosemont Blvd, which is Grant and Rosemont. It is an assisted living that seems very nice. Patti Pace and I have visited it twice and had lunch there and the food was very good. It is on the second floor and there is an elevator to take you up. We will not have to raise our prices for the luncheons and it will be buffet style, with a couple different options. I am hoping that we can attract more people to come. We will try it for two months and see how everyone likes it and then decide to continue there or go back to the Golden Corral.
We distributed all our school supplies to four schools over the summer and I wanted to say “Thank You” to all that contributed and helped deliver them.
The Pioneers have a new category of people that can join the organization. It is called Friends and Family and I am sure all of you have someone that you can recruit to sign up. They do not have to pay the $22 membership fee unless they would like to be on our board or receive any of the benefits that the Pioneers can get. So if you have someone that would like to sign up, please let me know and I will get a membership form to you.
We also have some club board member changes. I have asked Patti Pace to become my Senior Vice President. We will also have Louise Rebholz take over the scholarships for the club and chapter. Under Education, we will now have Mike and Mary Rhodes to schedule the Readers for Life and anything else that falls under Education. In addition, Mary Seagle is taking over American Red Cross and John Seagle will be taking over lap robes.
Please remember to check our website for any fundraisers and announcements we have going on at
I hope to see you all at our September luncheon at the Golden Corral and then at The Forum in October and November. If you have any questions, please contact me at (520) 741-8034.
