Happy May and Happy Mother’s Day!!
Saturday, May 1, is May Day and Derby
Day, and we’re having a get-together at the lodge. Come on down and root for your favorite horse to win. We will serve some appetizers and have drink specials too. Spin the Wheel of Fortune to win Derby-themed prizes. Wear your best Derby “bonnet” and maybe win a prize. It should be a ton of fun, come and join us. The action starts around 2:30.
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 9. The lodge will have a wonderful ceremony honoring all mothers, both here and departed. The ceremony will be at 1:30 with appetizers and dessert being served afterward. AND, a special Mother’s Day edition of Bingo will happen afterward. So, stick around for some fun and laughs.
We’ve had lots of fun on Friday nights since April 9 with the return of the Queen of Hearts. The drawing
happens at 6:30 in the evening following the 50/50 drawing featuring the one and only Pam Wedwaldt.
The Texas Hold ‘Em card game is scheduled for Sunday, May 16, at 1:30. Make sure to sign up in the lounge so we know how many tables to set up. Wednesday dinners are still being served between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm. We are currently packaging the meals to go, but you are welcome to stay and eat with your friends in the lodge room if you wish. Sign up in the lounge by the end of business Monday. Please do not leave a phone message, as sometimes we do not get the information in a timely fashion. Thank you.
Memorial Day is Monday, May 31. We will be open that day and are putting the flags up on Oracle Road. They go up at 7:00 am to half-staff, then rise to full-staff at noon, and then come down at 5:00 pm. We need helpers at 7:00 am, noon, and 5:00 pm. Please come and help to honor our veterans.
Community Activities have no current projects to let you know about. Please continue to support the Queen of Hearts, as many of the proceeds assist us in giving back to our local community in a number of ways.
April seemed to fly by way too fast!! Now the summer heat is ramping up, and even many of our Snow birds able to go to their winter homes now that COVID is finally slowing down.
It is nice to see things slowly getting back to “normal” with the many familiar faces returning to the lodge to enjoy the Queen of Hearts! The energy has been a lot of fun to experience once again. So far, the Queen has done a good job of hiding, so there is still plenty of chances for a big winner. Personally, I hope she stays hidden until the end and let that pot grow really big.
Hopefully, we will see lots of people come to our Kentucky Derby party. Make sure you come early for the real highlight of the day, the inaugural running of the “Catalina Derby” hosted by Jack B.
This month’s shoutout is going to the members of the PERA (Past Exalted Ruler Association) for finding a way to restart the Queen of Hearts once again. While the energy and excitement is great to have back on Friday nights, the money that the QoH raises for our charitable causes is what excites me the most.
As always, if you have questions or concerns, you can always reach out to me via email (email@example.com) or phone (520.268.2375)
Take Care! Paul
