The Women of Quail Creek celebrates ten years as a club

Janice Pell

In 2004, five Quail Creek women decided to form an organization open to all women in Quail Creek. The mission of the club was to discover and develop awareness of current affairs and provide relevant information and education concerning issues that are important and of interest to women. At the first meeting approximately forty women attended, currently the club has 279 members. Club meetings, with speakers or programs, are generally held the last Monday of every month. Special events during the year include luncheons in June and December, a membership brunch in October and a field trip in March. All meetings, except for the special events, are free.

Over the years, TWOQC has evolved from a mainly social group to embrace philanthropic projects. Ongoing service projects include cutting and sorting coupons for an overseas military base and the Air National Guard, collecting for the food bank, a yearly baby shower for military moms and a clothing drive for homeless veterans. A Shared Table, TWOQC’s second cookbook, with over 390 completely new recipes, will be published in August, with all proceeds benefitting Genesis House for battered women and children.

On October 27 there will be a very special and elegant Champagne brunch featuring The Tucson Boys Chorus to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the club. The cost to attend the brunch will be $10 and it will only be open to current members of TWOQC; no guests. Anyone wishing to attend must either be a current member or else join the club. New members joining in September will be paid through December 2015. No memberships will be sold at the brunch. Tickets will go on sale at the September 29 meeting.

Club membership is open to all Quail Creek women. Membership offers women not only a fun way to interact with other women and enjoy a variety of interesting programs, but also a chance to get involved in serving the greater community. Yearly dues are only $25 and are used to pay for speakers and entertainers, underwrite luncheons and field trips and other expenditures. This year TWOQC donated $1,000 to send a WWII veteran on an Honor Flight to Washington D.C.
