Cottonwood Clay Sculpture class with the amount of

Evelyn Shea It’s no secret

that Arizona presents

residents and visitors many memorable experiences. Why not capture them in clay! The Cottonwood Clay Sculpture Class offers a unique opportunity to preserve these memories in a permanent medium while getting to know other students and artists who are creating fun and beautiful artwork. Some of these visiting

artists have

returned annually to Sun Lakes, SunBird and our class, learning new skills and techniques designed to meet the needs of all levels. They have learned that yes - they can combine traveling with this intriguing and creative adventure! It’s easy! They plan the size and complexity of their sculpture

time they have until

their next trip. While they are enjoying their travels their artwork is drying and being fi red. Upon their return to class, the art students complete the fi nishing process - then start the next sculpture! So why wait - let your travels inspire your artistic adventures! This is a year round class; we meet each

Wednesday morning from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and Thursday evening from 6:30-9:30 p.m. in the Cottonwood Ceramic Room (Room 8) across from the HOA offi ce. Call Evelyn Shea at 480-926-1240 for

more information and a supply list. Your clay and sculpture tools may be purchased in class for your convenience. You are also welcome to visit our class! 

Golden Goalies: Still friends

Bea Loozer Top loser for last month was Annette.

Lookin’ good too, I might add. But that’s not our subject this month. I wanted to mention the upcoming Open House. Each phase will be offering one this fall, with Sun Lakes Country Club hosting the fi rst, on Saturday, October 5. Golden Goalies will have a table at the fi rst Open House (not sure about the others) and Annette thought it would be good to have a poster to display some member photos, including before and after photos. The contrast should be fun to see.

She is fi nding photos that bring back a

lot of memories. In the fi ve years I’ve been a member I’ve had the pleasure of making new friends. Looking back at the old photos is a walk down memory lane. I’m seeing faces that bring back such memories. In the last few years we’ve lost our beloved Jean and Charlotte. Phyllis and Laverne have moved into independent or assisted living

situations; and, of course, some members have simply fallen away due to health issues or other priorities and we miss them too. The photos reminded me that any day

now Zen, Roberta, Sylvia and others will be returning from their cooler summer locales. We welcome back our old friends and are happy to say we have several new members/friends for them to meet. I’ve said before that members of Golden

Goalies provide support to those who want to lose weight. All true. They also provide friendship. Stop by our table at the fi rst Open House

on Saturday, October 5. Chat with Annette and our current leader, Sharon. Then join us Saturday mornings


our regular meeting. Weigh-in is between 7:00-7:45 the Mirror Room of Sun Lakes Country Club. The meeting starts after weigh-in next door in the Friendship Room. Contact Rita at 895-2559 for more information. 
