The Geezers are a group of Gentlemen in our Pickleball Club that are at least 75 years old as of the current year. We are a fairly casual group that loves the game and would like to contribute to several worthy causes.
American Beauty Rose Program
Our current goal is to send a single American Beauty Rose to any woman who has had a significant incident happen in her life and would benefit from having one. This can mean a special birthday, a loss of a loved one, an unexpected medical diagnosis, or someone that just needs a HUG at this point in her life.
If any pickleball club member becomes aware of such a need, please turn in first and last name of the recipient to any Golden Geezer Member or myself. The Geezers will purchase the Rose, but we will ask you, the sponsor, to see that it is delivered to the recipient.
We hope this will spread a bit of joy to lots of ladies in the coming year!
Sincerely, Marc D Parenteau
Please donate your unused bud vases by bringing them to the courts or giving them to a Geezer Officer. Thank You!!
Golden Geezer Monthly Gathering 3rd Tues each month 8:30 am
The Golden Geezers wil be serving coffee and rolls at the courts every 3rd Tuesday of the month at about 8:30 am (except the HOT summer months of July, August, and September)
Each month, either one of the Geezers or another PB player has generously offered to sponsor this event by donating $30 to cover the expenses. A group of 2 or 3 players which will include at least one Geezer will be onsite to visit with everyone and spread some pickleball cheer!
Thanks to John Baurenfeind for donating a nice 36 cup coffee maker and 3 lbs of coffer to start off these Geezer sponsored events!
Also Beyond Donuts & Cafe, located at 8110 W Union Hills Dr, Glendale, has offered a discount for these events. Please stop by there and Thank them! Mention the Golden Geezers! They open at 6 am every day except they are closed on Mondays.

PEBBLE CREEK EXCHANGE
Coordinator: Kelly Lodato
Late 2018 Rhonda Whitaker & I played in the Battle of the Paddles tournament held December 7th at Peco’s park. While we did not set the world on fire or come away with any medals it was a great experience and we met some great ladies. Two weeks later I received and email from one of the Pebble Creek ladies we played against in the tournament, Renee Ellison. She thought it would be fun to plan some 3.0/3.5 ladies round robin play between our two clubs. We went to work to gather our respective troops and find court time to set up our first event.
Our first play date was February 10, 2019 at Pebble Creek. We had 8 players (Glanita Roberts, Gayle Cannon, Rhonda Whitaker, Donna Powell, Ranae Baker, Mary Kinson, Loretta Meeker & Kelly Lodato). We had a great time & our ladies won 14 of the 24 games played. The Pebble Creek ladies provided all sorts of yummy snacks and everyone who participated was ready to have another event.
Our second play date was March 3, 2019 at Westbrook Village. Our ladies all pitched in and brought food and beverages to share. This time we had 9 ladies (Kim Foley, Kelly Lodato, Loretta Meeker, Mary Kinson, Ranae Baker, Glanita Roberts, Melinda McNamara, Gayle Cannon & Rhonda Whitaker). The Westbrook ladies won 20 of the 28 games this go around. Everyone had a good time and we finished the afternoon off with margaritas!
