Weekend Updates

Thank you to all that came out for the Diabetes walk or who donated money to this new charitable cause that we participated in on Sat 9/26.  Those of us who participated decided it would be an awesome event to do every year and are already planning for next year and Brew City is a great place to have a little social afterwards where we ended up raising some money for Wounded Warrior by purchasing beer glasses.  We are an awesome group.

Just a friendly reminder we have 2 awesome volunteer events happening this coming weekend.

The first is on Sat Oct 3rd and it’s the Habitat for Humanity in Worcester,  we will be serving breakfast at 9am and lunch at 1pm.  We will have 2 grills, 2 ezups, tables and we ask you bring a chair and some food to share.  There will be approximately 25 volunteers working on the house and then we figure we’ll have about 20 volunteers feeding them.   If you want to help volunteer with the building that’s fine too.  If you can’t make it but would like to donate something, let Deb, Angela or Sunshine know and we’ll make arrangements to get it from you.  We are looking for food that is easily prepared and doesn’t really need heating.  We will have some steam tables available.

The second is Sunday Oct 4th and we usually do this as a co-club event with WMPHC.  So if you are interested in showing up we will be handling registration and a water stop.  Any questions please let Sunshine know.  We usually go to Brew City in Worcester afterwards for lunch.  Hope you can join us.

Here’s the information from the walk volunteer person.

Thank you for again coming to the Worcester County Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Sunday October 4th at Quinsigamond Community College! It takes a lot of volunteers to make the day run smoothly and we appreciate your help.
Your volunteer assignment will be to help with “Registration” and “Water Stop”

Please arrive at Quinsigamond by 7:00am and check in at Volunteer Registration. This will be located in the area marked 11 on the attached map. The folks who check you in will then direct you to Angela Floro, who is the registration captain. We would like to split up your group, half helping with the Water Stop the other half helping with registration.  
Thank you so much for your help and we look forward to seeing you on 10/4. Please note that the event will be held RAIN or SHINE!

Halloween Party Update

Hello from the Prez

Ahoy fellow Parrot Heads, can you believe summer is coming to a close and schools are preparing to open up and welcome back students. Hopefully you’ve all had a summer full of fun and laughter and unfortunately tears for those we have lost, but we shall keep them alive in our hearts through the wonderful memories we have of them.

With another Jimmy Buffett concert at Great Woods over and stored into the long list of wonderful memories, we want to remind you all of the fall line-up of fun and exciting things to do.

First off we have the Ellis Haven camping at the end of August, then we have the Diabetes walk the end of September and the Alzheimer’s co-club event at the beginning of October, SOMA Sr. Games down the Cape mid-Oct and of course the Halloween party that so many of you asked us to bring back.

So thanks to Carol Shapiro for putting this Halloween party tradition back on the books. Click on the right navigation pane that says 2015 Halloween Party for the information to help you start planning for this awesome event.

Then we have a really great contingent going to MOTM’s this year, so looking forward to my first one and having PHUN with everyone.

Look for more fun and exciting news coming out in our Oct Newsletter.

We have a great group of Pholks and I’m proud of all that we do. Thank you for being you!!!
