Happenings of the Sun Lakes Rock Gem and Silver Club

John Harrill Richard Sanderville is one of our very

talented members who seem to excel in every craft that he tries. Richard and his wife Kay are snow birds and spend their summers traveling or in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Richard had never made any jewelry pieces before he joined our club about fi ve years ago. Since then he has made some beautiful projects from faceted precious stones to silver belt buckles and inlays of stones in metal. Some of his works are shown in the accompanying picture of Richard. Not only is Richard

talented, he is very generous

with his time in volunteering to help others improve their skills. He is truly a valued club asset.

Here’s a little something about us. The

Sun Lakes Rock Gem & Silver Club is one of the older clubs in Sun Lakes. We welcome new members that are complete novices to experienced artists. Our volunteers teach people who have never “been handy” how to make jewelry and art objects they are proud to wear and show. Members can use all three of our workshops. One of them is located in each of the three phases. Our Club provides novice to expert craft classes, as well as guided fi eld trips to areas with semi-precious stones. We plan to have one to the Holbrook, Arizona area on May 23 to obtain pieces of petrifi ed wood. Some of the scenery on these fi eld trips is both isolated and beautiful. If interested in going, call Fred Nehls our Field Trip Chairman; cell 480-285- 9813. In addition, for those with basic experience

to senior crafts persons, we offer numerous open shop hours to pursue personal projects in a safe, friendly environment. Our open shop Monitors

are available to answer

questions and instruct proper use of shop equipment. We plan to offer classes this summer for our members. You will fi nd that our club’s shops are very well equipped for you to learn new crafts or pursue old ones. All of the crafts that we offer are listed on our website at Some of the more popular ones are lapidary; silversmithing;

lost wax; beading; dichroic

glass; as well as precious metal clay (PMC) where clay-like materials are formed and kiln

fi red, to become metal art or jewelry. For socials, our club has an annual Christmas/ Hanukkah party each December and a club picnic each spring. To learn more about our club, come to

our meetings. You will fi nd that we are a friendly group, eager to share our knowledge and experience. Currently we have over 200 members and are always looking for more. Our club is open to all Sun Lakes residents. We welcome and encourage guests at our meetings. We meet at 10:30 a.m. for our general

meetings on the third Monday of every month (October through April). We gather before each meeting at 10:00 a.m. for coffee, cookies and socializing. Our next meeting will be October 21, at the Sun Lakes Country Club Navaho Room. We hope to see you there. 

Reach Out Food Drive

Ellen Engel “Reach Out Sun Lakes,” a volunteer

coordinating group for local charities, collected 367 pounds of staple foods, canned goods and other grocery items plus $163 in cash donations from generous


residents and local organizations in April. All of these gifts benefi t The Crossing

Food Bank which serves over 600 needy Chandler families. The fi rst May collection will take place

on Monday, May 6, at Risen Savior Lutheran Church and School (corner of Alma School Road and East Oakwood Drive) where one of our sponsoring organizations, the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club, holds its regular meetings. Drop-off time is between 12:35-1:20 p.m. Look for the “Reach Out Sun Lakes” sign and people in yellow t-shirts. A second drop-off opportunity is at the

Sun Lakes Country Club Clubhouse on Monday, May 13, just before the meeting of another sponsoring organization, the Sun Lakes Democratic Club. The van and our yellow-t-shirted collectors will be there from 5:30-6:30 p.m. And should it be inconvenient for you

to make the pick-up dates and times, you may drop off contributions at the Sun Lakes Country Club in the container reserved for Reach Out donations. Any Sun Lakes resident may contribute;

membership in a participating sponsor organization is not a criterion. But Reach Out Sun Lakes is always seeking new individual donors and new sponsoring groups. For example, the congregations of Unity of Sun Lakes and the Sun Lakes Jewish community also currently make regular and meaningful contributions each month. For further information or if you have

questions or would like to volunteer to serve on the Drop-Off Crew, please contact Ellen Engel at 480-208-0425 or email her at 
