Is it just me, or do the months seem to be flying by? It really seems like only a few days ago that I was wishing you Season’s Greetings and trying to compose something of interest and readable for January. I hope that you’re having a Happy New Year so far.
Our club’s name was finally approved by everyone that needed to approve it. After being reviewed by the Clubs and Community Organizations Committee (CCOC) in November, December, and January, the name change was finally approved by the SCSCAI Board of Directors at the January meeting. Beginning this month, you’ll notice changes to our website, emails, and advertising that will reflect our new name — The Sun City Summerlin Social Club!
Not to get ahead of myself, I do want to remind everyone that the General Membership meeting is coming up in March. The board will propose a budget, review upcoming events & activities, and we’ll all be entertained by the Senior Moments Band. Program details will be announced soon, so keep checking the website for updates.
In other news, Our membership has dipped from over 400 to just about 220! Please extend an invitation to your friends and neighbors to join so others can enjoy the Sun City Summerlin Social Club.
Have a great February and I hope to see you at the next event! ~ Sofia
Having a wonderful time!
Busy Hands For Charity
Anita McCarthy handmade 3 beautiful blankets, 3 warm scarves, and 5 cozy hats!
New member Jean Roberts made Busy Hands for Charity a priority by making these much needed items — Thank You, Jean!
This summer, a small group of our members made over 100 hand-crafted items and then donated these scarves, hats, blankets, and layettes to two wonderful organizations —
Project 150 which offers support and services to homeless, displaced and disadvantaged high school students in the Las Vegas area so they can stay in school through graduation and learn the life skills necessary to be successful. Project 150 collects gently used clothes, toiletries, non perishable food, and school supplies year round. Throughout the year they hold special drives for high school sports equipment, formal wear, blankets and other seasonal items as needed.
The Assistance League of Las Vegas Layettes Program layettes (infant tee shirt, body suit, bib, booties and a cap), along hand-made blankets, sweaters and hats are provided to University Medical Center, Women’s Resource Medical Centers, First Choice Pregnancy Services, Southern Nevada Health District and Nellis Air Force Base new mothers.
I accompanied Angela Zecca, Hands for Charity event coordinator, on her delivery rounds in November. I saw how both organizations were so appreciative of Angela’s and her group’s efforts — every item would help keep a child warm this winter. If you’re interested in donating your time or materials, reach out to Angela at (805) 660-8740 or email her at email@example.com.
Holly Jolly Gala!
The Holly Jolly Gala was so much fun — Albeit a time lag between performances, it was almost a perfect evening — dinner & desserts were delicious, and once the music got started, some great dancers got on the floor.
