CITRUS _____________________________ - continued from page 22

Pat Giroux, Duane Ticknor, Larry Kurtz and substitutes Joe Tighe, Jenny Kao and Jean Kulander. Bob and Larry maintained our database of volunteers and picking sites, while Anita Lincoln, Linda Everett and Betty Ford fi elded calls and e-mails from homeowners


volunteers. We’re happy to say that although we can only pick as many sites as our volunteer turnout permits, we were able to meet all requests. We never charge for picking, but we’re always grateful for voluntary donations that help us maintain an adequate supply of equipment and cover other costs. Homeowners:

If we picked at

your residence this year, you are now on our list for next season and a captain will contact you by phone or e-mail a few days before we propose to show up. If we did not pick at your residence and you would like to be on our waiting list, or if you would prefer to pick your own fruit and either deliver

it to Citrus Central or have us pick it up, watch the Splash. Contact information will be announced in the January issue. We will also be announcing a date for our annual February Kickoff Coffee, to which we invite returning volunteers and others interested in joining our fun family of pickers on a regular or occasional basis. Meanwhile, our buckets, bags,

picking poles and other supplies will be stored during the long off-season under the watchful eyes of Jim and Arlene, Tom and Pat and Les Klingberg. Many thanks to them! Over the years since Marge Mickey and I formed

the group with just a few helping hands, our ever- growing band of volunteers has harvested some 90 tons of citrus and helped tens of

thousands of people in need. And fun was had by all! If you

have any questions about our work/play, please contact me at or 480-263-9495.

Roadrunners Bob Bundy, Barbara Clark, Wally Cornelius, Frank Hand and Sally and Larry Walby are waiting for their steaks from the grill.

The Sun Lakes Roadrunners enjoyed a

few days in early April at the White Tank Mountain RV park outside Glendale. Just a short distance in travel from Sun Lakes made for a great time! Roadrunners is a group of folks who love to travel and enjoy fun times with

friends and their RV’s and fi fth wheel trailers for short distance trips or several day trips. If you are interested contact Marty

Wheeldon at 480-802-7256. The group meets monthly at the Navajo Room at Sun Lakes Country Club. 

Metal Lokators members Court Birchard, Kathy Caldbeck, Pat Kindle, Jean Lovell, Bob Hetzer, Gerri Todd, Darrell Hensley, Judy Hetzer, Joe Trim, Virginia Koehler and Gene Williams.

Virginia Koehler The Metal Lokators members ended this

season with their Big Hunt and end of the year luncheon. The Big Hunt was in March at North Mountain Park and their end of the year luncheon was in April at Joe’s BBQ in Gilbert. There will be no more meetings this season. Meetings will resume this fall. Our fi rst meeting of the new season will be Monday, Oct 14, 2013. The Sun Lakes Metal Lokators Club

meets the second Monday of every month October through April. Dues are $15 per person per year. Most meetings are held at

1:00 p.m. in the Friendship Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club. Everyone is welcome to join us to see if this is an activity you would like to do. If you have no metal detector and would

like to try one out, you may come to one of our monthly hunts and use the club’s detector. Anyone having lost a metal object of

value to them is welcome to contact the Lokators Club and have our members search for your item. Contact our club treasurer Virginia Koehler at 480-883- 9672. 

Pilates reformer training available

Linda Elsea Now that classes are coming to a close

for the summer, personal training on the Pilates reformer is still available to Sun Lakes residents. The decision to specialize and orient training to an active,

my Pilates senior

population did not come about on a whim, but as a result of my own struggles and trials to remain active and functional with programs more suitable to my age and capability. Pilates equipment is that program for me. Active seniors can now stay connected with the new fi tness-orientation of Pilates,

learn to operate equipment safely, move with correct techniques and biomechanics appropriate for their age and be able to relate health concerns and limitations to one who has “been there, done that.” If you would like to try a new approach to Pilates on the equipment, such as the reformer, exo-chair and the springboard, this training will be available through the summer. I wish you all a healthy, safe summer

season and look forward to seeing you in the fall. If you have any questions please call Linda Elsea at 480-721-0493. 
