Weeders Garden Club wrapping up the year

Robert Moise, guest speaker at the Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation Men’s Club meeting in April.

The Weeders enjoyed the Japanese Friendship Garden. The Weeders Garden Club is winding

up their year with the same dedication to community, each other and education they exhibited the fi rst part of the 2012- 13 club year. They have arranged fl owers for the residents at Archstone Care Center, gathered donations for My Sister’s Place and cared for the garden at McCroskey House at Tumbleweed Park. Educational segments have included information on aloes and agaves, summer plant and tree survival and creating “cocktail” citrus trees and rainbow- hued rose bushes. From the exuberance of the Wuertz Gourd Festival to the serenity of the Japanese Friendship Garden, they have done it together with the camaraderie and good will that makes this club unique. During the 2012-13 club year the

Weeders added 11 new members to the roster. Each new member came with experiences to share and new questions to be answered. They were attracted not only by the knowledge they could gain but also the fellowship. Anyone interested in more information or in joining this active club should contact Janice Giachino at 480-

895-5509 or and visit the website at The last regular monthly meeting was

on April 11, at 9:30 a.m. at Cottonwood Country Club in Sun Lakes and included a presentation by Marcie Brooks, fl ower show judge and fl oral designer, on fl oral design. A lucky attendee won the arrangement she made as a door prize. The fi rst meeting next year will be on September 12, same time, same station. The fi nal fi eld trip this year found the group enjoying the Boyce Thompson Arboretum on April 18, followed by lunch at Los Hermanos, a family-owned Mexican restaurant

in Superior which Arizona

Highways highlighted as one of the top ten in the state. The last meeting of the year will be held at a member’s awe-inspiring yard and garden in Gilbert. Mary Templeton is known for the spectacular variety of plants she is able to grow and inspires everyone to dare new things. Fieldtrips and the fi nal meeting of the year which includes installation of new offi cers are open to members only. 

Cheers Singles celebrate March birthdays on St. Patrick’s Day

Ron Leimer, Publicity Cheers Singles Club celebrated the

quarterly birthday party on March 17, at the Navajo Room at Sun Lakes Country Club. The event happened to be on St. Patrick’s Day so most everyone wore a little “green” for the occasion! Marjean Scheele (with the

help of some great volunteers) turned the Navajo Room into the “Irish Room” for the occasion with green decorations galore. Great job folks! Dinner was served and the usual birthday cake (of course) was served to a very large crowd; nearly 90 members were served on a fi ne Sunday evening. Perhaps the large attendance was partly due to the special tribute to long term member Jo Portello (featured in another article in this issue). It was great seeing such a large group of happy and smiling faces. This is what Cheers is about, good times and happy folks! Ginny Marr kept the activities moving briskly through all the activities during the evening; I believe she must have been a First Sergeant

in the Army before leading

our Cheers Club for all these years; thank you so much Ginny! Cheers is open to all single residents

living in Sun Bird, Springfi eld and Sun Lakes. Membership information can be obtained at any of our socials which are held every Thursday at 4:00 p.m. at the Oakwood Country Club lounge. A welcome table is at the entrance to the lounge and a member will be at the table to give you all the information you need to join this fun bunch of singles. A bulletin board at the entrance of the lounge also shows our past and future events, photos, etc. so be sure to look at the board too. We have both small and large events held every month; you’re sure to be greeted with a friendly smile and “Welcome to Cheers” from us! 
