Volunteers needed for 2011-2012 season


It was a great day at NWC!


Carol J. Bowers, Volunteer Service Coordinator Saturday, November 5, 2011, at noon the


skies cleared, the temperature rose above 70°F, and guests toured the Neighbors Who Care offi ce, which was decked out with blue and white balloons and crepe paper. The windows were washed squeaky clean and fl oors vacuumed well. Plates of blue and white cupcakes, a bowl of apple cider and platters of sugar cookies blessed the tables. The big day had arrived. Neighbors Who Care, the well known volunteer organization in


South East Maricopa County and


especially the 23 square mile area around Sun Lakes and surrounding planned adult communities was burning the mortgage for their business condo at 10450 E. Riggs Rd. Suite 113, Sun Lakes, AZ. The Dignity of Home Campaign was a resounding success. Those who worked tirelessly to secure the property and funding to make this possible were honored. Sponsors who provide services to our community were there to share information and show their support for services provided to more than


625 individuals by almost 500 volunteers. Entertainment was provided by the Doo Wop Group and Frank DiFrancesco. A special mortgage burning song was


written and performed by the Doo Wop Group to help celebrate all that went into making this not only a sentimental journey but also a signifi cant accomplishment in just three years. The Sun Lakes Fire Department Engine No.231 arrived to assist with fi re control and bring out the child in each of us. At 12:30 p.m. Executive Director David Harr and Board of Directors President Richard Eslick began the program with introductions and awards of birdhouses, to commemorate The Dignity of Home, and the accomplishments of signifi cant volunteer leaders. They also named others who contributed so much to this great accomplishment. The time came to light the fi re that would signify the end of this fantastic journey and the beginning of new goals. But, WHO HAS THE MATCHES? The fi re department only puts them out, they don’t start fi res. Almost no one we know smokes anymore; those who do

Ania Kubicki Chandler Center for the Arts


Lakes resident is


seeking new volunteers to join the “Friends” group, which provides front- of-house services (ushering, ticket- taking, concessions). The Friends group was formed when the center first opened in 1989 and has continually supported the shows and events at the Center. It’s a great way to make new friends and experience


the performing arts on a


new level. Many Sun Lakes residents have participated over


the years. Sun and Chandler Cultural


Foundation Board Member Anne DeRose said, “We are so grateful to see so many of our Sun Lakes friends volunteering at the Chandler Center for the Arts. It is a wonderful group of volunteers, many of whom I am proud to call my friends.” All interested parties are encouraged
