Please pay special attention to our upcoming events, especially the Annual Meeting on Monday, April 23 at the Arrowhead Country Club. We have a very special speaker this year, with a thrilling story to tell. I hope that you won't miss this unusual opportunity to hear one who has been directly involved in a U.S. history making event.
I've enjoyed the past 4 years as your vice president and president. It has been particularly special to have a Board that has been so involved, dedicated and supportive of the new ideas and improvements that we have incorporated for our members. I trust that our members hopefully recognize the hard work involved. Of particular note are the following areas for which I give thanks to those involved:
Thanks too to Bert Walker and Mary Barkl for serving so ably at the Treasurer and Secretarial positions so ably. And a special thanks to Don Roeber, our past president, who has remained very active in supporting many events and providing counsel and guidance to the Board.
I hope to see you all at the Annual meeting and at events in the future.

News from Nurse Nance
How much energy do you need ? We constantly hear about not overeating and keeping calories intake in check to maintain a healthy body weight, but few people know how much energy (calories) they really need. Here are some examples to help figure out the range of calories you should be eating:
First, your basic metabolism:
Male: Multiply your body weight by 10, then add double your body weight to that number.
Second, your physical activity: If you are brisk walking (4 mph) for one hour per day:
Total calories needed (not accounting for the 10% used for digesting food) in this example :
Male: 2,560 calories per day

SPRING TRAINING BASEBALL GAME - MARCH 12
A good time was had by all especially by those who didn't leave after the Mariners jumped to the 5-0 lead early on in the game. Those who stayed saw the Athletics come back to tie it up at 5 all before the Mariners finally salvaged the win at 6-5.
SPRING POTLUCK PICNIC - MARCH 21
Approximately 60 to 75 members and guests attended our annual picnic. Thanks to all of you for the delicious potluck food that all enjoyed. In addition to a great meal four, gift certificate, door prizes were drawn.
KITT PEAK TOUR
The Kitt Peak Tour was cancelled due to a forest fire. It will be rescheduled. Those who signed up or were turned away due to the limitation on attendees will be given first choice for attending the new date.
ARIZONA SONORA DESERT MUSEUM TOUR
Due to the cancellation of the Kitt Peak Tour, many attendees chose not to continue with the tour scheduled for the next day. Here are newly retired, Tuk Gove, with his wife, Sue, and their Aunt Lois who was visiting from Seattle. That is a sculpture of a coyote behind them rather than a live animal.
The weather was a lovely sunny 86 degrees. We saw many types of desert flora and fauna including the free Raptor Flight demonstration with three types of birds being shown.
