Cottonwood Lady Niners


Lorri Morgan, Publicity

A Flock of Flamingos in Sun Lakes? No, it’s the Pretty in Pink Cottonwood Lady Niners at the Welcome Back Luncheon held November 16 on the pro shop patio. The weather was fantastic, and most of the snowbirds had flown back to their winter habitat. Kathy Sullivan started her season out with a hole-in-one! She used her driver on CW #8 on November 6 to find that red flag pin. Congratulations, Kathy!
