April 2019 Newsletter

Support Plus April Report

Our month starts out with several members having issues.  I’m sure they would love to hear from you!  Just go to our site; sislt.org to find their address and/or phone number!

Cindy Archer was admitted to Barton Hospital for two days with an unexpected health issue.  She is now resting at home and recovering nicely.

Rosemary Ottman got the BAD FLU infecting her terribly!  She was back at our meeting and is working again albeit, with low energy…

Kris Keesling’s mother passed away in March and Kris is recovering from many trips back and forth to Southern California to be with her during her last days!

Pat Gottschalk had surgery for macular degeneration at U.C. Davis Medical Center.  She will have a second surgery on April 16.  She is staying in Davis and can be reached by phone.

Betty Mitchell’s celebration of life will be on June 5 (would have been her 97th birthday).  It will be held at Valhalla from 3 – 5

Mickey Madden announced that the memorial for her recently deceased husband, Doug, will be held in June.  The date and time will be posted next month.

Taking the time to send or card or make a phone call is so appreciated by those suffering in distress.  It takes so little time and can mean so much!

President Elect’s Message

I would like to thank everyone for your kind words and support these past two weeks! It has been a great start to the adventures we will be embarking on, should you elect me your President (haha).  I am especially thankful for your patience as I navigated through my first board and business meeting.

As we gear up for this summer, I would like to encourage everyone to participate in any of the club activities we have going on. The socials are a great way to get to know your fellow Sorop-a-sisters. The Gift of Literacy Program and Rock Tahoe Marathon fundraiser will get us out in our community!

We are still actively searching for a Club Treasurer for next year. The ideal candidate is good with numbers and wants to get involved at the board level. Bonus if you have QuickBooks experience but it isn’t necessary, we will train you! The previous overwhelming workload associated with this position has been greatly dispersed amongst the Financial Services Committee. For more information about this position get a hold of Brooke.

Have a super April everyone!

Virginia Glenn’s visitors in Goodyear

Mickey had been visiting us in Goodyear and Brenda and Roni were in the area with their motor home and visited Kris Walters over in Fountain Valley.  Since Goodyear and Fountain Valley are at the extreme opposite ends of the valley, we decided to meet in Tempe – sort of in the middle.  We had a great time catching up and laughing.  It’s wonderful when friends get together.

As I walk down the street
Sending love to those I meet
