have been active in helping homeless veterans and will be raising funds again on Veteran’s Day weekend. Also, some members of the post will work as ushers at the state Fair to raise funds for the Arizona StandDown for homeless veterans. This post

is open to all


parties, no matter what religion or race. For information on this very active post call Sid Reiff at 480-339-0378. Since the meeting starts with a brunch,

Restless Minds Group will discuss the nature of death

Bill Gates What happens when you die? The Restless

Minds discussion group will explore that and related questions when it meets Tuesday, October 8. The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Oakwood Arts & Crafts Center’s Sewing Room. Restless Minds is open to all people with inquisitive, open minds. There are no dues or sign-up requirements. Just show up and participate in the discussion. Discussion leader Bill Santos wants the group to explore the nature of death and

our knowledge of it. Among the questions he will raise are: What does it mean to be dead? Is it possible to survive death? What, if anything, is so bad about dying? Is the end of

life a mystery? In addition, he will ask

the group to discuss whether killing is ever permissible. The Restless Minds group meets

on the second Tuesday of each month from September through May. For more information contact Bobbie Reed or Bill Gates at 480-883-7410. 

Line Dancing with Judee

Judee Curtis The fi rst blessing (a/k/a reward) that

comes to mind after teaching line dancing for many years is meeting some of the nicest people with very interesting lives and memories. These people are usually my age but what a reality check when one gives a birth date; i.e., born the same year I graduated from high school and want to learn line dancing. You have not missed out if you were

unable to join us September 2, as this activity is ongoing. New dances are always taught, steps and patterns are always reviewed and the pace of teaching is customized to the dancers on the fl oor. The class, if you are just starting, is called Ultra Basics on Mondays,

from 1:00-3:00

p.m., cost is $3, in the SunBird Golf Resort just east of Sun Lakes. If you are reading this article and don’t live in Sun Lakes, you are welcome to join. To sign up you must call Judee, full-time SunBird resident at 480- 802-0201 after 10:00 a.m. This class is a prerequisite to the Basics class at 11:00 a.m. Both classes are given the gift of a Free

Steps and Pattern Class scheduled on Wednesdays, once a month throughout the year. This gift is for those who have signed up for line dance classes. We dance through June 2014. If you love to dance, need a new activity,

want to exercise both mind and body, have fun and want to escape this crazy world, call today. You’ll wonder why you haven’t called sooner. 
