Sunday, March 6 was the sixth annual Spring-o-rama Golf Tournament, this year hosted at Palo Verde. Pro shop Manager Greg and his staff helped our 124 golfers have a great day. The tournament started at 9:00 a.m. after the teams enjoyed coffee and donuts. At two holes the players had a chance to win a new golf cart, donated by Classi Golf Cart. Unfortunately, no aces on those holes, but Bonnie Moore did shoot a hole in one on No. 15! She was congratulated at lunch and awarded $50.
Burgers, salads and beer awaited the teams as they completed play about 12:30 p.m. Marshall and Danielle and staff at Palo Verde were wonderful getting everyone served so quickly and lunch was delicious.
The winners of the tournament were the foursome of Rick and Deb Ebel, Jamie Breit and Nettie Dingler. Closest-to-the-pin–male was Gary Bricco, and female was Rita Grant. Many raffle baskets were awarded to grateful winners. The 50/50 drawing was won by Rick Ebel, definitely a happy, golfer today.
March 17 and 18 was the spring sale in the east parking lot of SLCC. This sale featured furniture, vintage goods, art, lamps and décor. This sale was a complete success and the sale of so much furniture will allow us to reduce our storage bill. Thank you neighbors for your great support! We do hope to make this a yearly sale – a lighter spring version in March, and our full fall bazaar the first weekend in November.
If you’ve been in the SLCC lobby, you will see a beautiful red golf cart! This 2016 EZGO cart, custom built and cared for by A1-Golf Carts, will be raffled off on November 6. Tickets are 6 for $10, or $2 each and you can buy them now at the Sun Lakes Administration Desk.
Thank you so much for your support in all our fundraising efforts. If you golfed in our tournament, bought something at a sale or bought a raffle ticket – thank you!
Your generosity allows our generosity! Three large projects were approved and funded at a special March meeting. All three were necessary for public safety and included security cameras, infrastructure repair and electrical work. Funding these jobs comprised about one-third of our budget for the year, but since they addressed safety of our neighbors we were proud and happy to approve them.
The last bit of news from March was on the 21st we had our spring luncheon. It’s always is a wonderfully fun time, but a little sad as about half of our members begin to pack up for home soon after.
To join this wonderful association the rules are easy. All women are welcome! Meetings are the second Monday each month from 9:30–11:00 a.m. in the Art’s and Craft’s room of SLCC.
