Letter from our President
Well, here we are, staying home, social distancing and longing to be able to get together again soon. I hope this newsletter finds you well, and you are not having too much trouble isolating and staying safe. Many of us are in the over 60 category and need to be careful about contact.
Several of our ongoing projects have had to adjust, or temporarily suspend, but I bet many of you have picked up new ways to help in our community. The Kay Reed Blood drives are still happening, there is an urgent need for blood donation, and the Red Cross is taking extraordinary cautions to keep donors and staff safe. Make your appointment online to assure there is time for you and plenty of room.
There have been so many tutorials on making masks for yourself and friends and family, and we have some patterns and ideas on our chapter web site and in this newsletter.
Hug A Bears can’t meet currently at the church, so several members are carrying on at home. Recent deliveries to Victim Witness and St. Mary’s Hospital were very appreciated.
Treasures 4 Teachers of Tucson is only accepting members by appointment to control the number of shoppers at a time. Soon they will again be ready for your donations of toilet paper rolls and egg cartons, as there are no volunteers currently working in the store to sort and stock those items. Look for donations to be welcomed sometime in May.
Our May luncheon has been cancelled, restaurants are still closed for dining in. Hopefully, September will allow us to meet again, check our web site and look for an email about that before September 1.
Four Scholarship winners were chosen this year, although we won’t be able to honor them at a May luncheon. They are Olivia Dow, Deborah Lesneski, Ayla Patton and Amber Patton. These four students are outstanding examples of scholarship and volunteerism. Visit the website to find out more about them.

CAN YOU HELP? Any Pioneer out there who might remember building a trail in the Saguaro National Monument- West? We think this happened sometime in the 1980’s or 1990’s. The Park service would like to know who built, funded, or worked on it. Click CONTACT US to tell any part of the story.
