March 2022 Oracle

Fun Tennis Fact Maria Sharapova ’ s on - court grunt or shriek has been officially recorded at a volume as high as 101 decibels. That is louder than a motorcycle, lawnmower, and a small aircraft landing.

For those of you who enjoy sewing, we would like to invite you to join us in the West Room Monday – Sunday, from 8AM to 5PM. This group allows us the room and time to work on individual projects, as well as, group projects. The group projects, such as the charity raffle quilts help the club to raise money and give resources to the Cathedral City Fire Department first responders and to domestic violence victims at Shelter from the Storm. Due to the recent rise in COVID cases we have cancelled the quilt show for this season. The silent auction will now be a raffle at the Ladies ’ Luncheon in March. This year we have three charity quilts. They will be on display in the West Room. Raffle tickets can be purchased from anyone in the group during sewing times in the West Room or at any of our pop - up locations during ORPS events. The cost of the tickets are one (1) ticket for $5 or five (5) tickets for $20. The drawing for the quilts will be held at the March Ladies ’ Luncheon. Winner need not be present. We are happy to host the March Ladies ’ Luncheon. Information regarding the luncheon will be forthcoming. Please look for news in upcoming ORPS Daily Bulletins. If COVID causes us to cancel the luncheon, we will still do the drawings for the three raffle quilts on Wednesday, March 9, at 1PM, in the West Room. We would also like to extend our appreciation to all those who helped make the holidays for the families at the Shelter from the Storm a little brighter this season. Your generous donations of toys, undergarments, socks, cleaning supplies, diapers, wipes, etc., were so welcomed. These items have gone a long way in the feeling of kindness from others during a very difficult time in their lives. Thank you so much. We will continue to accept any donations for the shelter all season, every season. Please bring them by the West Room or drop them in the donation box located in the El Saguaro entryway.

Our next HORSE RACE will be on Saturday March 5 with a Town Hall and refreshments to follow at the LP tennis center. I know many of you are anxiously awaiting the return of the BNP Paribas Open, which begins on Monday, March 7 and runs through Sunday March 20. Get your tickets soon! I suspect with Nadal, Djokovic, and Ashleigh Barty among a field of many other stars it will be a hot ticket event. Submitted: Dawn Williams, Tennis Communications.
