In addition, Palo Verde resident

Shirley Shoemaker, noted pet artist, will be present. Do you have a Sun Lakes pet sitting

business? Give us a stack of your business cards and we will gladly make them available to parade participants. Our hopes are to have at least one

animal rescue group on-site. There are so many loving pets in need of homes and perhaps you will fi nd one that steals your heart away. The parade is free to all who wish to

attend, however, we would like to ask you to bring unopened bags or cans of dog or cat food, as well as old towels and blankets, which in turn will be donated to a local animal rescue group. Bins will be provided for those items. So save the date and plan ahead for

a great outing with your loving pet your family. Directions to the lake will be provided

unscheduled “emergency services,” voting assistance, additional transportation for dialysis and chemotherapy patients and free meals to dinner-delivery clients who cannot afford to eat at least one hot, nutritious meal each day. For the community we are hosting free educational forums, additional free auto and golf cart checkups, and a monthly AARP safe driving class. There is so much more our community

needs, and we are brimming with ideas. But we are reaching the limits of our current resources. Our hope is that Friends of Neighbors Who Care will take us to the next level. You or your club, business, or congregation can participate in many different ways. With your help we can forge new partnerships and create a network that connects our community’s residents with an ever wider array of services, benefi ts and opportunities that enrich the lives of all of us. Please join with us. This is a great place to

live. We are optimistic that through Friends of Neighbors Who Care we can live up to our name and make Sun Lakes and south Chandler an even better place, truly a community of “neighbors who care.” Contact Neighbors Who Care 480-895-7133

Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation Sisterhood

Joyce Spartonos, Publicity It seems impossible to believe, but

another Sisterhood season is almost upon us. To this end the Program Committee has been hard at work arranging for another year of terrifi c events. Things will be getting under way

starting on Thursday, October 18, in the Chapel Center in Sun Lakes at 1:00 p.m. The guest speaker will be Nancy Brandon from Scottsdale Healthcare. Nancy is an adult-learning specialist and her topic will be about keeping a sharp memory and improving brain function. In other words, “Brain Fitness Fun—Use It or Lose It.” Boy oh boy, can’t we all relate to that! In keeping with honoring our veterans,

November is the perfect month to hear about women in the armed forces. Sisterhood is having someone discuss the issues of women in the military—and they are many. It’s a really important topic that is generally given very little coverage, but you’ll learn all about it at our meeting on November 8. As you can see just from

these two programs, it’s going to be a most informative year. As a reminder, all meetings are on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m.

in the Chapel

Center. The exception will be our card party, which will be held in Oakwood on Tuesday, February 12, 2013. So make sure you mark your calendars now. To help us in this endeavor, any NEW items you’d like to donate for baskets would be greatly appreciated. Please call Susie at 480-883- 7117 or Mary at 480-802-9855 and they will be happy to arrange pick-ups. We hope to make this another blockbuster year and can certainly achieve that with your help. Remember, whatever you can donate must be new. If you’re getting all excited about this,

that’s what we’re looking for and it makes it the perfect time to remind you to remit your Sisterhood dues. The cost is still $25, and your check, made out

to SLJC Sisterhood

should be sent to 3495 East County Down Drive, Chandler, AZ 85249. That’s it for now. See you next time. 
