The Women of Quail Creek’s (TWOQC) Scholarship Committee and Quail Creek’s Education Committee are pleased to announce our 2018-19 Kino Lecture Series open to the public.
On Monday, October 29 Tucson orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Klein will share his experience of scaling Mt. Everest in a lecture titled “From Tucson to the Top of Everest: Dr. John Klein’s Odyssey.”
The January 14, 2019 lecture is titled, “Ranger of the Lost Art: Rediscovered WPA National Park Posters.” Former Ranger and retired dentist Doug Leen will discuss his role in saving and sharing the early art promoting America’s National Parks.
Finally, the March 4, 2019, lecture “Fabulous Fliers: The Birds of Madera Canyon and the Santa Rita Mountains” will be given by Douglas Moore from the Friends of Madera Canyon.
All lectures will occur in Quail Creek’s Madera Clubhouse Ballroom from 7:00-8:00 p.m. and cost $5 per lecture. The funds raised support TWOCQ’s Scholarship Fund which awards scholarships to senior girls at the two Sahuarita high schools as well as to women in transition wishing to further their education.
The 2017-18 series raised $1800 for the Scholarship Fund. Our three guest lecturers were Steve Getzwiller, Navajo Rug expert from Nizhoni Ranch Gallery in Sonoita; Randy Serraglio, jaguar expert from the Center of Biological Diversity and the Winfield Family, turquoise experts from Lone Mountain Gallery in Tubac.
Please join us for our 2018-19 series which is sure to be as interesting and successful as our last series.
