Diabetes Support Group December raffle prizes especially for a little boy.

Viv Sloane Our fi rst meet since May will be held

on September 6 at 1:00 in the Oakwood Sewing Room. We hope some new ladies will show up as we need a lot of help doing what we do. We will have a lot to talk about since we haven’t met for several months. Our raffl e will be coming up before we know it, and we need to make


everything is ready. Look for us at the open houses to be held soon. Underprivileged or

homeless boys and girls are very happy to receive the items we provide. We need some special items for boys: little cars, trucks, soldiers, action fi gures. Also some specialty Beanie Babies besides bears. We would like to thank all the people who have responded to our needs, especially those that don’t live in Sun Lakes. Without the donations we receive from “Loved Ones Lost” we would not be able to continue with this program. Used dolls have become very expensive to buy even from Savers or Goodwill. The dolls and other items they donate to us are very much appreciated. As

always we are in need of

unbreakable dolls of all types, especially 14”-16”-18” little girl dolls. The fabric we need should be solid colors or small prints suitable for baby or

little girl dolls. We

also have a need for fl annel and fl eece for doll blankets, lace and other sewing supplies, yarn of all kinds and crochet cotton, and children’s books. Other small items that we can give to the Food Bank for distribution to small children coming in with their mothers. We are also in need of small (about 3”) baby bottles as we fi nd these are very hard to come by. We have

American German Club

Trish Defl ieze. Our Club is on summer vacation. New members are always welcome. If

you are of German heritage or the spouse of someone with German heritage you are eligible to join our Club. The club year starts in September and ends in April. We try hard to have social events which appeal to everyone and programs to expand our knowledge of Germany and German culture. Our next meeting is September 25 at

7:00 p.m. in the Lakeview Room. Our October 23 meeting will be a potluck at 5:00 p.m. with the location pending. However you spend your summer, stay safe, eat lots of

have a great one,

bratwurst and practice your polkas. Auf Wiedersehen. 


a great many baby dolls that need bottles as we like to include one with each doll. It would even be nice to have a miniature rattle to include. We always include a baby blanket or quilt with each doll. Even if donated items can’t be used by us, we

will fi nd an appropriate place where they can be used. Since we are a Special

Interest Group of the Sew- N-Sews, some of the other charities they support can use items that are donated. For more information about joining our group or to donate

items, call Rose Zimmer at 480-895-5148 or Viv Sloane 480-688-7823. 

Ann Schieber The Sun Lakes Diabetes Support Group

will NOT be holding any meetings this year. If there is someone who is interested in carrying on this group,

that would be

nice. But I will not be doing it. The regular people who came to the group know of this, but there may be those who had already left for the summer and didn’t get the notice. One of the reasons we are not holding

meetings is the fact that I would spend days getting a speaker (a doctor or a diabetes educator) who would give up an evening to drive here and then have only 10-12 people attend, sometimes we would have 15 counting the speaker and myself. That really is not fair to the speaker. I do want to thank the regular members who did attend. That meant a lot to me and

showed me that you cared for your health. There is a support group that meets

the fi rst Tuesday of every month at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center for Diabetes Management. It is located at 1760 East Pecos Road, Suite 235,

Gilbert, AZ 85295, phone 480-728-3535 or 480-728-3511. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. and lasts until around 8:30 p.m. I have been to this meeting off and on for several years. It used to be held at Chandler Hospital. It is located just east of Val Vista and Pecos on the north side of the street. Turn into the parking garage and up to second fl oor and walk across into the building; or park on the lower level and take the elevator up or use the stairs. They are located on the left side of the building. Thank you for all of your support over the last several years. 
