We remember with thanks all the brave men and women who served in that war.  And all those who have served their country.  This includes the spouses and sweethearts who were at home but worried and prayed and tried to encourage their loved ones.  As they also served.

October 8, 2018

President Gay Uhl opened the meeting and welcomed all.  She said we were thankful for the cooler temperatures, but it was a bit cooler than expected.  (We were also thankful for the heaters.)

We had surprise table decorations from Ann Steinsvaag and Ruth Brazil.  EJ Snearly supplied wonderful candy treats for everyone.  Thanks to these lovely ladies for all they do.

Since there was no microphone, we decided not to read the secretary’s report.

In Deb Adinolfi’s absence, Sandy Strack gave us the treasurer’s report.

Gay took the opportunity to thank the servers who always take such good care of us.

There were 12 birthday girls this month, but only 3 of them were present.  So we had them stand so we could sing “Happy Birthday”.  We had the drawing for the gift card, and Ro Conti was the lucky winner.

Later this month is our Putter Partner event.  Robbie Herrera gave us all of the details.  The event is Thursday, October 25thon the putting green.  Registration is at 3:30 with putting at 4:00.  Dinner is at the Mesquite Grill starting at 6.  The menu is:

Beef enchilada with red chili sauce

Chicken enchilada with green chili sauce

Cheese enchilada with green chili sauce

All are gluten-free, and entrees include rice and beans.  Dessert will be carrot cake cupcakes.  The usual non-alcoholic beverages will be available.  A cash bar will also be available.  The cost for this event is $23 per person.

Since the rain caused a delay with over-seeding, we probably won’t be able to putt on Monday the 15th.  If that changes, Gay will send out a newsblast.

Next month at our luncheon we will have a style show presented by Soft Surroundings.  We need 8 models, and Gay asked for volunteers. Robbie Herrera, EJ Snearly, Pam Brown, and Pam Smith volunteered.  Any other volunteers should contact Melody Branstrom or Sandy Schoenleber.  Since neither of them was present, you can find their phone numbers on the website….or let Gay know so she can pass along your name to them.

The sign-up sheet for the December Holiday Luncheon is ready, and we passed it around so everyone could sign up and choose their meal.  The sheet will be available at Monday morning putting for others to sign up between now and the cut-off date.

Vicki Strief then introduced the slate of candidates for the 2019 Putters board.

–Pam Smith moves to President

–EJ Snearly – Vice President/President-Elect

–Robbie Herrera – Secretary

–Deb Adinolfi – Treasurer

–Pat Storey – Web Master and Statistician

–Sandy Strack – Membership and Institutional Memory

–Jeannie Hepner – Special Events Coordinator

–Donna Vargas and Geri Grant – Event Advisors

–Ann Cristofani – Member-at-Large for Scorecards

–Jan Arruda (absent) – Member-at-Large for Committee Assignments

–Lorna Kitchen (absent) – Member-at-Large for Monday Morning Assignments

Gay asked if there were any nominations from the floor.  Since there was only one candidate per position, Pat Wells made a motion to accept the slate as presented.

Gay then stated that the motion suspends our by-laws, waives the voting process, and confirms our slate of candidates.  She asked for a 2ndto the motion.  Ginnie Schoepf seconded the motion.  Motion carried by a raise of hands.   Congratulations to all of the candidates on their board positions for 2019. The candidates then gathered for a picture.

The free lunch drawing was next.  The winner was Mary Beth Snyder.

There were no committee cards to award this month.  The ladies doing chip starter, course set-up, and course take down still have a few weeks left on their assignments.  Next month we will owe them a very big thank-you for their extra long commitment.

Our monthly winners for 4 or more holes-in-one and the money hole are:

4 holes-in-one:  Roberta Wisniewski and Lorna Kitchen

5 holes-in-one:  No one

Money Hole: Jo Ann Evans, Valerie Zink, and Diane Lunghi

Congratulations….and remember that these monies go on your HOA2 Golf account.  Sandy Strack reminded everyone that their golf account money needs to be spent by the end of the year.  (except for December’s, which will roll over to 2019)

This month we have one new member of the 39ers….Jeane Liske.  Since she was absent, she will get her sticker later.

The 50/50 drawing was next. The winner was Margie Nicholson, who won $77.   Congratulations!

Since October is the month of harvest, Gay ended the meeting with the following quote from Joan Crittister:

The secret of life is to let every segment of it produce its own yield at its own pace.  Every period has something to teach us.  The harvest of youth is achievement: the harvest of middle-age is perspective; the harvest of age is wisdom; the harvest of life is serenity.

Gay thanked all for coming today.  If we are able to putt next Monday, we will get a newsblast announcing that. Otherwise, we will meet on the green on the 22nd….at 9:30 since we are now in our winter hours.

Meeting adjourned.

The meeting was called to order by President Gay Uhl.  She noted that yesterday was Mother’s Day, and hoped that everyone had a wonderful day.  We are all mothers in some way.

She thanked Ann Steinsvaag and Ruth Brazil for the decorations. EJ Snearly and Jan DiEnno were also thanked for the candy. And of course, a big ‘thank you’ to our servers who always do an excellent job.

Pam Smith then read the Secretary’s report in Mylinda Guillan’s absence.  Since we didn’t have a meeting in April, Pam also indicated the winners from March.  The Road Runner award…Debbie Elofson – 38, the Tiger award..Debbie Elofson – 25.3, and the Hole-in-Wonder award…Ro Conti – 10.

The Treasurer’s Report was then read by Deb Adinolfi.

This month there were 16 birthday girls….and 7 of them were present.  They stood while we sang the ‘Happy Birthday’ song.  Then the name of the lucky birthday girl was drawn for a gift card….and the winner was Marijo Lewis.

Marijo then took this opportunity to discuss school supplies.  The teachers really appreciate all that we do.   At this time, copy paper and dry erase markers are a priority.  They will always take monetary donations as well, so they can use that money to fill in for other needs.  Marijo indicated that we would try to get our donations to the school in San Manual by the beginning of the school year in the fall.

We then had the drawing for the monthly ‘free lunch’.  The winner this month was Sandy Strack.  Congratulations!

Gay then talked about our next special event…Moonlight Madness, which will be on Sunday, May 27. We will be putting by the light of the full moon (and a little help from glow sticks).  Bring a partner – either a spouse or a friend.  We’ll have dinner, and when it’s dark enough we will putt.  The menu is barbecued chicken breast and hamburgers served with Cheddar and Swiss cheese and condiments, potato salad and coleslaw, and a cookie for dessert.  A bartender will be on hand to serve adult beverages.  There will be a special drink for this event…Red, White & Blue Sangria.  There will also be iced tea, lemonade, and water available.  The cost is $21, and the checks are due in the black box in the Pro Shop no later than 2 pm on Friday, May 18.  Please put your partner’s name on the memo line of your check.

Then EJ Snearly told us about our trip to Saddlebrooke Ranch to putt with the Ranchettes on Wednesday, June 6.  Registration is 9:00 am, putting at 9:30, and lunch will follow in their Bistro.  The menu is grilled sage chicken breast, whole wheat penne pasta salad with goat cheese, dinner roll with butter and dessert (unspecified) with coffee, herbal tea, iced tea, and lemonade.  Attendance is limited to 36, so there may be a lottery.   The cost is $20, and the deadline for checks to be in the black box is Monday, May 21 by 2 pm.

We will carpool from the lot in front of the Bistro.

Each year MVLP donates $400 to a charity…usually a local one.  Linda Edwards discussed the 2 groups that were nominated this year—IMPACT of Southern AZ, and Family First Diaper Bank and Pregnancy Center.  After the presentation, ballots were passed out and everyone voted for their choice.  Our group chose IMPACT to receive our donation this year.  This organization provides eye exams and glasses for students who struggle in class because they can’t see well.

It’s time for the nominating committee to begin its work to assemble a slate of next year’s officers and board members.  At this time there is only one member on this committee (Sandy Suwyn), and she needs a partner.  Please consider joining this committee if you are willing to take on this assignment.  You can contact Gay, Pam, or Sandy if you are interested.  Your participation would be greatly appreciated.

The ladies who completed their committee assignments in April did an outstanding job.  Gift cards were awarded to:

 

Chip Starters:          Marie Nola and Maria Butcher

Winners Cards for February followed…

Money Hole:  Maria Miller, Pat Brothers, Jan Talbot and Ginny Jackson

(Cards were previously passed out at this morning’s Putting.)

Gay announced that going forward there will no longer be Gift Cards issued for Winners.  Instead winnings will be posted to the Putters HOA #2 card.  Monies can be spent at the Pro Shop at HOA #2 or the Preserve or used at one of their restaurants.  They cannot be used at the Theater at this time, but that is being worked on.  In addition you cannot use them for range balls, lessons or green fees.    You do not have to have signing privileges in order to use the winnings posted to your account.  HOA #1 residents will need to get a HOA #2 card.

Next up the Monthy Award Winners:

Road Runner (Low Gross)  –  Kat Danner  –  41.3

Lu Ann Garvin Tiger (Low Net)  –  Ginny Jackson –  32.2

Hole-in-Wonder  –  Pam Smith  –  8

One name was drawn for a $10.00 Gift Card and the winner was another new member Joan Davis.

The 50/50 drawing was held and Myrl Carter-Dahman was the lucky winner of $78.00.

Gay finished the meeting with a reminder there will be no regular putting next week, just the Putter/Sputter event.  She thanked all for coming today and closed with the following:  “May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.”
