Mix and Mingle with MOAA


Peggy McGee

The annual Green Valley Chapter Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) Mix and Mingle will be held on Thursday, March 22 from 4:30-6:30 in Crystal Ballroom No. 1. The purpose of the event is to introduce officers and warrant officers, active duty, former and retired and their spouses or significant others to the many programs and projects sponsored by the Chapter, one of the most active in the state of Arizona.

One of the highlights of the evening will be MOAA Jeopardy featuring the Chapter’s very own Alex Trebec. The winners will take home some non-cash prizes. The event will also feature a silent auction to raise funds for Chapter activities.

Hors d’oeuvres will be provided and there will be a cash bar. Cost is $10. Reservations may be made by contacting Barbara Brown at 520-625-8066. Deadline to sign up is March 15.
