Presentation from 7-8 pm at the Glendale Adult Center located at 5970 W. Brown

Hope to see some of you there.  I'm sending this to the out of town friends & 
family cause I think the invite is pretty.

them :)

Reflections Challenge

Our April Reflections Challenge was very successful, with too many beautiful paintings to make choosing winners very easy. But, we had winners, all of whom provided wonderful paintings. above, we show Diane Locati, the First Place Winner. Below is Arlen Madole, the Second Place Winner.

The Third Place Winner was Diane Freeman, shown below. Congratulations to you all, well-deserved!

Below are photos of the "judges". Good job all!

Wow, Ladies!

Elizabeth Mullen and Aileen Garvey have been commissioned by the Sun 
City West Recreation Center governing board to design and produce a 
10' by 20' mural honoring and dedicated to the Sun City West Volunteers.
The theme is to recognize the many volunteers in this community and how 
very much they do for us.  It is a "Thank you" to the "Sun City West 
Volunteers are the Heart of our Community", which is spelled out on 
the mural. 
The work can be found on the interior court yard wall across from the 
administrative offices of the RH Johnson Recreation Center.  It is 
currently in progress with an expected completion date of 4/18 or 4/19.
Please come and visit us.  We work from 2:00 until dark as that is 
when the wall is shaded. 

Kristi Herring said:  "I stopped by to see what Eileen Garvey and Liz Mullen were doing while painting the mural at the RH Johnson Rec Center. They were working hard with their beautiful mural".

Kristi provided these photos to document their progress and share with us. Thanks, Kristi!
