I moved to Sun City Festival 11 years ago from Florida where I had

I worked with the elderly who had lost their vision and I initiated a
music appreciation class .
I lived in New England before that for many years
I was married and was divorced when I was diagnosed with mus-
cular dystrophy
Fortunately I’m doing quite well and I am able to play golf three
days a week and I just recently started working in the Grille as a
hostess which I’m enjoying I’m meeting a lot of new people who
are just moving in as well as some old friends
When I first came here I hosted a golf tournament for four years to
benefit the MDA which thanks to an excellent committee and a lot
of moral and physical support from the community in general and
from many of my friends in particular was quite successful and we were able to donate more than $50,000
over the four years,
We also included the local schoolchildren to make signs for the sponsors and they came through with flying
This love summer I took a 5000 mile road trip all the way to the Canadian Rockies by myself I visit with some
