26 Mar Cholla News
I think spring is here! The weather in Sun City is great and I bet it is beautiful in Cholla, also. We will be going down April 4th, I can hardly wait!
First the sick bay, then I’ll remind you about what’s happening in The Bay.
Last week Pete Peterson had to suddenly leave Cholla for Tucson, where he was admitted to the hospital and underwent surgery for internal bleeding. They operated last week and again on Monday and were able to stop the bleeding. As of this morning he had all the tubes, etc., taken out and was expecting to go home today. Shirley said he is doing well, but of course they don’t know when they can return to Cholla, but probably as soon as Pete can travel. I tell you, they are both really amazing “troopers”. You can send cards of encouragement ‘well” wishes to 1746 E. Copper St., Tucson, Az. 85719.
I received word that Lew Fraizer, old time Chollian, passed away in March, I don’t know when. Lew was very active for many years in the Phoenix CBSC chapter and the council.
Coming events for April, just so you don’t forget:
April 5th is the CBSC Horseshoe Tournament at the clubhouse. Sign up will start at 10 a.m. and the tournament will start at noon. The entry fee is $10. There are some great prizes and it includes hot dogs and beer. For those who just want to come and watch and have hot dogs and beer the fee is $5. This should be a great time!!
April 11th, 12th and 13th is the second phase of the CBSC Fishing Derby. All you folks out there, pray for no wind. Be sure to stop by Ship’s Store during the derby and get your Derby T-shirt and other “cool stuff”. And, it’s a great place to watch the boats come in and find out what’s happening.
April 19th will be the OBSC Bash, with games, food, beer, music and lots of great prizes. Be sure to get your Bash tickets to win some of those great prizes. This is always a lot of fun and it is a benefit for some of the organizations for the needy in Rocky Point, so it is for a very worthy cause. You won’t want miss this.
April 26th, in the morning, is the Annual Vecinos’ meeting. This is your opportunity to vote for candidates for the Vecinos’ Board. There are 4 positions open, so your vote is important. I’ll have to let you know what time. Sorry about that.
Also, April 26th will be a CBSC meeting and pot luck. The meeting will be at 4:00 and social hour at 5:00 and dinner about 6:00. Ham will be provided for this dinner, so bring a pot with something in it to go with the ham. Also, drinks will be provided. I think there will be a charge to cover cost of utilities, cleaning, etc., but I will have to let you know what that will be.
This is all I have to say at this time, except I hope you are all having a great week and I hope to see you all in “The Bay”!
