Women's Luncheon Planned

Ladies, have you dreamt of being organized? Have you longed for the time you could reach into your purse and just quickly pull out what is needed without unloading five to 10 items, or open that closet door without fear of things falling out at you? The Christian Women's Club is hosting a "Get Organized Luncheon" March 14, noon-1:30 p.m. Hear helpful hints from Kay Luckett. Kay, a former caterer, and a teacher at community colleges in California started "Get Organized" five years ago and has recently moved to Sedona. Kay is an organizer who de-clutters and organizes for her clients in their finances, businesses, and homes.

Also speaking is Lynda Cooper, who will share her thoughts in "Making great time but where are you going?" Lynda is an ASU graduate and is an interpreter for the deaf.

Be encouraged, laugh and be with women from all over the Verde Valley at Pine Shadows, 2050 W. 89A in Cottonwood. The luncheon cost is $12 and will be catered. Reservations are needed by March 9. Please respond by e-mail to or phone Pat at 649-9076 or Bev at 639-4617. If you find you are unable to attend it is important that you cancel your reservation.

Cottonwood seeks events for Summer Youth Times

Buena Vista Children's Services, Cottonwood Parks and Recreation, and Yavapai College are working together to address the needs for quality, affordable summer programs for local youth. This group publishes the Summer Youth Times to make parents aware of youth programs that exist in the upper Verde Valley.

This comprehensive summer youth programming guide helps parents by gathering all of the information they are looking for in one convenient publication. Parents are able to organize their children's summer activities easily. They are also introduced to many programs and activities that they had not known about. The 2007 Summer Youth Times will include information on summer day camps, College for Kids classes, swimming lessons and many other fun and exciting programs offered by public, non-profit and private organizations in the area.

The 2007 Summer Youth Times programming guide will be distributed throughout Cottonwood, Verde Village, Cornville and Clarkdale the first week of May. It will also be available at many locations throughout the upper Verde Valley.

If your organization provides a summer program for youth, they want your program included in this publication. Fees are reasonable especially considering that your program entry in the Summer Youth Times will be seen repeatedly throughout the summer as parents use this guide over and over again looking to keep their children active.

They are also gladly accepting advertisements to help offset printing costs. Contact Robin at Cottonwood Parks and Recreation, 639-3200, ext. 0, or e-mail her at for more information about advertising your business or youth program in the 2007 edition of the Summer Youth Times. Deadline for advertisements and entries is Friday, March 16.
