Sun Lakes Women’s Association began the first meeting of 2017 by installing our new officers: President Judy Caniglia, Vice President Marge Shipe, Recording Secretary Sandy Bealmear, Treasurer Pat Vachon and Assistant Treasurer Sonja Diemert. After the installation, President Judy started the first meeting of our 43rd year of operation.
The first order of business to was award the first ever Woman of the Month award to Beth Little, a volunteer who never learned the word “no.” Referred often in our association as “little Beth,” that doesn’t reflect her attitude, endurance or heart! You inspire us, Beth, and the award and gift certificate are tokens to that.
February brings registration time for our 7th annual Spring Fling Golf-O-Rama on March 5. Again, over 200 golfers will play the beautiful Palo Verde course and finish with lunch and prizes on the Palo Verde patio. This tournament always sells out, so don’t delay in registering. Each of the four Sun Lakes golf course pro shops have registration forms and can take payment when it’s turned in. Your $50 registration includes morning coffee and donuts, a goodie bag, a chance to win a classic golf car and a great lunch. This is a handicapped, shotgun start tournament, so get your team together and register at any Sun Lakes pro shop today!
The Sun Lakes Women’s Association is now at the beginning of a membership drive. We are a group who has no dues, and the only requirement for membership is being a woman resident of Sun Lakes. It’s always been a guess as to how many members we really have. Finally we’re going to formalize our membership with badges later this spring.
So are YOU a member?
Are you a woman resident of Sun Lakes?
Are you a woman who would like to donate about $50,000 yearly to the Sun Lakes community?
Are you a woman who would like help make, recycle or sell goods at our yearly sales?
Are you a woman who would like to meet other Sun Lakes women and have some fun?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, please join us! Our next meeting is Monday, February 13, 2017, in the Sun Lakes Arts and Crafts room, at 9:30 a.m.

Besides the Golf-O-Rama tournament in March, we’ll also be having our second annual Spring Sale, featuring furniture and décor items. Now would be an excellent time to help us out with a few donated items. We pick up for free – just let us know through the DONATE button online at slwomens.org, or give us a call at 480-895-9270, Ext 220.
All your donations become the sales that become the return cash donations to the community. Over $1 million donated in our first 42 years. It all starts with you!
