Sun Lakes Fire Department Captain Cory Evans and Cottonwood Lady Niner Sandy Jackson selling raffle tickets at the March 10 Member-Guest. A song and dance routine set to the music of You’re So Fine serenaded Sun Lakes firemen attending Member-Guest festivities March 10. Led by President Bette Lu Buchanan at the mic, the Lady Niner dancers were from left Cathy Kinnick, Patti Landry, Betty Beard and Dixie McQuaid.
There may have been song, dance, golf and fun all day March 10 but when the sun set on Cottonwood’s Lady Niners’ annual Member-Guest benefit, it was the Sun Lakes firemen who had the biggest smiles.
The 120 lady golfers raised $6,500 and the check was presented March 24 to Deputy Chief Daniel Guerra by Lady Niner Bette Lu Buchanan, president.
President Buchanan opened the tournament by sharing three words: “Potential, momentum and impact.” “Because of the potential of our membership and the momentum they created, we will have an impact on our community by donating to create a better Sun Lakes through assistance to our fire department,” Buchanan continued.
“This gift will go a long way in equipping our new truck,” Deputy Chief Guerra said in accepting the check. The new truck replaces one with 100,000 miles. Additional necessary equipment costs about $10,000.
Oakwood’s Lady Niners were guests March 17 and enjoyed Scramble competition followed by a cocktail hour on the patio.
Diana DePree volunteered to be the Assistant Handicap chair.
