Spirit of the Desert Gourd Patch to meet October 10


Sally Kiste and Terri Pate display some of the gourd art that will be available for purchase at the Oakwood Open House on October 19.


Kathy Kopjak Two of our members, Past President


and Founder Sally Kiste, and Terri Pate, our Events Coordinator for the Spirit of the Desert Gourd Patch, have been busy all summer working on gourd art for the art show on October 19 at the Oakwood Country Club Art and Craft area from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. “It’s a Small World” show will feature artists who have completed work smaller than eight inches in any one direction. These gourd art pieces will be just right for that space that needs just a small touch of color, a house warming gift, a gift exchange for those fun holiday


parties or for that special friend and/or relative for the holidays. Whatever your need is, we will have just the right art for you. Don’t miss this beautiful and interesting show. Our next Patch meeting will be held


on Thursday, October 10, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at the Oakwood Art and Craft Room. Membership is open to anyone in the Valley who is interested in gourds. For more information about The Spirit


of the Desert Gourd Patch, contact Joanne Miles at 480-802-4655 or Shirley Nesbitt at 480-247-6102. This meeting will be the fi rst meeting after the summer hiatus. 

Sandra Iosue, Auxiliary Historian Carol Eib, Auxiliary 8053 Cancer


Aid and Research Chairman, has kept the members of this auxiliary as busy as beavers the past few weeks. First, she had us all purchase one of


the Department President’s cancer pins. Next, we had to get wide-brimmed hats to decorate for cancer patients in our area. We were not allowed to use visors or baseball caps. We had six members show up on two separate days to decorate 30 hats with anything and everything that sparked our imaginations. On Tuesday, August 27, we stopped at


Walgreen’s to thank manager Devon for his generous donation of 20 hats. The rest were purchased by auxiliary members. On Wednesday, August 28, three of


our members from 8053 here in Sun Lakes and two members from Auxiliary 3713 in Coolidge loaded up all the hats and went to Ironwood Cancer Research and Treatment Center on Dobson Road in Chandler, where we presented a total of 54 hats to the patients and to Kelly Huey, Director of


Integrative Services and Social Work. Kelly will distribute the remaining hats to other patients. Carol also sent our information on


our postdoctoral fellowship grant, which provides a cancer researcher with $100,000 over two years for his/her research, to seven research centers and hospitals in Arizona. Not to be outdone, Auxiliary


Americanism Chairman Christa Marshall and members of the auxiliary will present the story about why the American fl ag is folded 13 times at the Sun Lakes homeowner’s meeting in


November


to honor Veteran’s Day. She will also present the homeowner’s association with a certifi cate for their dedication to our country by fl ying the fl ag every day. She also has many other projects up her sleeve. Are you eligible for membership in our


auxiliary? Would you like to participate in any of our programs that benefi t our active duty men and women, our veterans and their families? Contact Auxiliary Membership Chairman Carolyn Barrans at 480-802-7707. 
