State Parties

Western New York

The first western New York get together was so well received, we decided to have another fun event.

This second event will take place Friday, November 6 at Sisk Park in Palo Verde from 4:00-7:00 p.m. We will provide pizza, fruit and dessert, plates and napkins. We ask that you bring only what you want to drink and cups. We will be able to play putters, bocce ball and horseshoes and even another fun game that anyone can play.

The cost is $6 per person to be sent to Mary Ann Betti, 9607 E. Nacoma, Sun Lakes, AZ 85248. You can e-mail [email protected] or [email protected] for a reservation and questions or comments.

Washington Dinner resurrection

It has been several years since Washingtonians got together in Sun Lakes. Thanks to a phone call from Andy Zommers, we’re going to have a party, but in a different form. Admitting to copying Minnesota, we’re going to have a patio party at Palo Verde on March 13, 2016 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. In preparation for that, we need a committee. There are three of us so far, but it would be good to have more. It won’t be difficult. No decorations; for instance: maybe a few balloons, but nothing more. No designated tables, so seating will be simple. It’s going to be a barbecue with the menu already decided (once again copying Minnesota). There will be a cash bar, of course a 50/50, and we’ll be giving away some prizes like Washington wine, Starbucks gift cards (Seattle origin, you know) maybe a Costco gift card (also Seattle), maybe an Amazon gift card (also Seattle), or maybe a Nordstrom gift card (also Seattle). That’s just for starters.

We have quite a stash in the treasury, so those suggested prizes would be easy, but maybe we can get some nice donations, too, and it will only cost $15 per person.

Our first meeting probably won’t be until October, but if you’d be willing to be on the committee, please call Kit Carlton at 639-3164 or e-mail her at [email protected]
