2nd annual Kare Bear sponsored Golf Tournament

Rosie VanderVeen

It’s that time again! After much success in 2015, a second tournament will be held on Saturday, February 27 at 9:00 a.m. The format is four person scramble, 116 players maximum! Hurry and get your foursome together and for the meager price of $40 per person, you also will enjoy a scrumptious lunch, homemade desserts and prizes. What a bargain! Flyers will be posted in conspicuous areas! The tournament results will be reported in the April issue of SunBird News. Please see the article in the Golf Section of this issue for more specifics.

Many thanks to Jackie Baker and her committee for devoting their time, creativity and organizational skills to the colossal success of our Christmas luncheon. Appreciation also was expressed to all of the Kare Bears for their generous donations of canned goods. Our own Aggi Regan and Mary Regan graciously delivered the goods to St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank. We would also like to thank Kate and Wayne Chambers for lending their melodic voices with carols and traditional holiday tunes and to mystery guests Santa, Terry Steeno and his elf Bob Namon. Three beautiful quilts were donated by Sharon Solomon and Martha Powell. They were raffled off during the luncheon. Winners were Pat Pacelli, “tree” quilt; Bunny Bottorff, “baby” quilt, and Janelle Cernich “diamond” quilt.

February’s meeting will be Wednesday, February 17 at 1:00 p.m. in the SunBird Ballroom. Our speaker will be Christine Danata of Gemini Hospice. She will inform and educate us on the subject of hospice care. Should be both an interesting and informative discourse!

We will be making final preparations for the Kare Bears Golf Tournament and discussing the last two Kare Bear Faires of the year. In April, we will have our appreciation luncheon which is an acknowledgement to those who have devoted their time and talents.

The Kare Bears organization is now in its 22nd year! If you have inquiries about membership please contact Shirley Jackson, Holly Bird, Larie Thibeault, Bunny Bottorff or Barb Dunbar.
