Tennis, Sewing, and Softball Events

We're certainly enjoying our 70+ degree weather and beautiful sunshine!  So much fun stuff to do every day.

You must get out to the softball field on Tuesdays and Thursdays to watch our Palm Creek games.  It's so fun to cheer for friends out there on the field.  

Harry always has a smile and he gets a gold star for the final 'at bat' when he brought in the winning runs to end the game.  Way to go, Harry.

The tennis club had great fun today at their Red Neck tournament where they played with three players to a side.  After the games, their volunteers served up a delicious soup meal at their happy hour.

There was a great turnout today.  The tennis club is growing so they wistfully looked at the new courts still under construction.  They'll be VERY happy when the new courts are ready for play.

The folks on the front bench had a special treat when a praying mantis stopped in to share the excitement.

The sewing room was busy for the "Quilt-till-you-Wilt" event.  Mary Williams was kind enough to send these photos with her message:

We had a good time in the sewing room tonight at our event called "Quilt Till U Wilt.  We started at 4pm and worked till we were tired enough to go home .

There were about 45 ladies who gathered ....some sewing, some "turning", some pressing.  With that team work, in a little over 2 hours, we made over 100 receiving blankets.  These will be donated, along with a coordinating "onesie", to the Banner Casa Grande Hospital.

Of course all that labor worked up an appetite so the pizzas rapidly disappeared.

Needless to say with all this beautiful weather, the pickleball courts were ALL occupied when I stopped by and the day ended with a very entertaining concert -- "Tribute to Neil Diamond".
