October 5, 2011 for winter season Welcome Home Quartzsite winter residents and visitors from the Quartz- site Rotary Club. Rotary plans It's that time of year for all of us 'full time' organizations and residents to get in gear and start planning for our winter activities. This year in addition to our annual Christmas Tree & Wreath raffle held from mid- November to mid-Decem- ber, our Color TV give-away for the middle of the winter season and our Semi annual highway clean-ups in the fall and spring, we have partnered with the Arizona Centennial of Quartzsite Committee to add a fun time on No- vember 19th, 2011. The Quartzsite Rotary Club will host a Mad Dash Turkey Hunt, right here in Quartzsite. That's right "Turkeys" in Quartzsite, on November 19th, 2011. So mark your calendar for that date. The Rotary Club will, also, have the "Hoosegow" on display at our meeting place Silly Al's Pizza from November 13th through November 27th. (Put on your thinking cap and have someone arrested on Wednesday November 16th between 7- 9 PM or on Tuesday November 22nd between 7-9 PM, by our "Official Sheriff") Half of the profits from these two events will go toward the Arizona Centennial Quartzsite Committee, for finale events to be held on February 11-14, 2012.
