Celebration and Fireworks
Thank you to the VFW Post #10254 for hosting our July 4th celebration. Members of the community and the Post, came out to enjoy some good food, games, great music, and a half hour ground fireworks show.
A special Thank you to the Three Points Fire Department for the ground prep and engine standby during the show.
Easter Picnic a Winner
Thank you to all those who participated in the Easter Egg Hunt & Picnic. A special Thank You to Mr. Ed Wills who provided the services of the horse & wagon and the folks of Harmony & Health Lands who allowed use of their space for the event.
Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, all the hot dogs were eaten, the golden eggs were claimed and all 180 hidden eggs were found!
The water balloon toss provided some cooling effects for some participants and the egg & spoon race was a joy to watch. All the children who attended were a pleasure to host and even helped clean up the broken balloon pieces after the water balloon toss.
We hope to see you again at our next event.
Second Spay/Neuter Clinic a Success
Once again, on Saturday February 6th, we transformed our offices, and hosted our 2nd Free Spay/Neuter Mash Clinic.
Another 60 pets were done! (55 dogs, 5 cats) WOWSERS!
The wonderful people from Santa Cruz Vet Clinic (special Thanks to Dr. Karter Neal and Rose),
John & Dot from Spay & Neuter Solutions, the Animal League of Green Valley who provided transportation
for those pets who needed a ride, Nancy, Sharon, Jim, Richard, Jenny, Christina and of course my
very supportive partner Phil.
Once again the good people from Open Range Pizza provided lunch for the volunteers, Thank You !
The pet families were very appreciative that another mash was held in the area and we ended
the day with people stopping in to see when the next would be held.
Although it was a very busy and long day for all those involved, it was, as always, well worth it.
THANK YOU to all those who participated!

Santa came to town
Over the three Saturdays (Dec. 5th, 12th, 19th) that Santa visited, over 100 children stopped by to say hello to Santa,
watch him play the accordion and to participate in the crafts available.. On the third
Saturday Santa handed out 63 presents and the children decorated the outdoor tree.
We look forward to having him stop by again next year.
A special thank you goes out to all the elves that made it possible.

Spay/Neuter Clinic a Success
On Saturday September 12th RCS hosted a free spay/neuter clinic.
Through the hard work of Jenny Fasihi over the past months, she was able to garner the
interest of the mobile clinic and get them to come out to Three Points to hold the clinic.
Through the efforts of Dr. Karter Neal and her staff, from Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital,
40 animals were attended to, 28 dogs and 12 cats.
Thank you to Rose, Clara, Becky, Joanne, Peter, Christi, Sally and Mr. & Mrs. Gus Drews.
Spay and Neuter Solutions, Animals Crusaders and the RCS volunteers who were on hand to
help throughout the day.
A special Thank You to Open Range Pizzeria for providing lunch for Med Staff and Volunteers.
We are hoping to hold another clinic in 2-3 months time.
