The Crystal Card Project Has Busy Summer Schedule


Bobbie Reed

Sales and work sessions are continuing through the summer for The Crystal Card Project. So those of you who are here in Sun Lakes looking for activities, consider the options below to support this community effort.

Help make cards – July 18 and 25. No experience is necessary. There are lots of tasks to convert donated cards into beautiful new cards. And the card-making sessions are a fun activity, sharing the work with other volunteers. Work sessions will be held at Cottonwood in the Ceramics Room A-8 on the third and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. Stop by for part of the time or the entire session. You can just show up. No advance notice, is necessary.

Buy cards – July 9, 11 and 12. Cards sales will be held in the Renaissance lobby July 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and in the Oakwood Clubhouse Bradford Room July 11 and 12 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Donate cards. Donate used cards – entire cards so we have the inside message as well as the front. Donation bins are in each of the five Sun Lakes clubhouses. You can also bring donated cards to any work session or sales event.
