Regent Carolyn Hawkins with Constitution posters.


Toni Bolling Lutter In its annual observance of


Constitution Week, Gila Butte DAR commemorated our nation’s framing document with displays for schools and the distribution of educational materials around the Southeast Valley. Pictured are a few of the posters produced for the occasion. The tradition of celebrating


Constitution Week began in 1955 when Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) petitioned Congress to set aside the week of September 17-23 annually as a dedication to observing Constitution Week. The resolution was adopted by Congress and in 1956 President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed it into public law. Since its founding, Gila Butte Chapter


has supported this law by providing educational materials and by encouraging public participation. Of interest to schoolchildren are the little-known facts


Wet & Wild Water Aerobics


We are winding down our summer


classes and are getting ready for fall. Remember all the Sun Lakes pools are heated to about 86 degrees so exercising on a cool day is still great. Welcome back all our winter friends. If you like a variety of music to exercise to you have found the right place; classical, country, rock and roll, disco, show tunes, plus many other types of music keep us moving and having fun. Work at your own pace, make new friends, tone up, limber up and have fun. We meet at 10:00 -11:00 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the Cottonwood pool and Tuesday and Thursday at the Oakwood pool. All Sun Lakers are welcome. Each class is $3 or you can purchase a $25 punch card for 10 classes. For more information call Marti Scott at 480-895-4176. See you at the pool. 
