State Parties

Michigan Party highlights

The Michigan party was held March 31 in the Cottonwood Ballroom. A wonderful pasta buffet dinner was served to 136 Michiganders. The night’s events were filled with games (Michigan Bingo and Michigan trivia) as well listening and/or dancing to our favorite special era music. The most-requested music was Motown. There were prizes, raffles and a 50/50 drawing. Lucky winners were thrilled with the prizes. The most-wanted prize was the big basket filled with Michigan products. Even those who did not win the prizes were also winners, because they had the opportunity to meet other Michiganders now residing in Sun Lakes as well as reconnect with people they met at previous Michigan parties.

If you are from Michigan or know someone from Michigan, mark your calendars for our 2018 event to be held at Cottonwood Ballroom on Friday, March 25. Plan to attend – we would love to have you join our party. We are also looking for people who want to serve on the organizing committee. Phone Pearl at 480-305-0286 if interested.

Washington Patio Party a huge success

Kit Carlton

Everyone had a good time when 264 Washingtonians got together at Palo Verde for the second annual Washington Patio Party on March 12, 2017. In numbers, it surpassed last year by 34. People met new friends and enjoyed the barbeque. We gave away some very nice door prizes from Washington companies, and a few people walked away with a good chunk of change from the raffle. According to the emails we got the next day, it was a huge success.

Next year’s party is on March 10, 2018, once again at Palo Verde. If you want to be included and aren’t already on our email list, let us know at [email protected] If you don’t have email, call Kit Carlton at 480-639-3164 and give her your address. We’ll look forward to seeing you.
