Kiwanis presented The Salvation Army a check and thanked TLWC for their bell ringing participation last holiday season
2023 July 4th Parade
Monument’s Independence Day Parade 2023 was “Honoring Our Greatest Generation: WW II Soldiers.”
Over 30 TLWC ladies walked the parade as “Rosie the Riveters or performed as cheerleaders to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Red, white & blue pom-poms were shaken as the Rosies handed out LOTS of candy! Thanks to all for donating the candy, the kids sure love receiving it.
We also had two banners celebrating TLWC’s 50th Anniversary and the Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce 2022 Non-profit of the Year award. Pam Perry rode in the chamber car to celebrate and Billie Healy drove her Mustang with Past President Nancy Pokorny.
Our Parade entry won the President's Award from Kiwanis!
Thanks to Sue Leggiero, Kelly Trop and Jan McKinley for organizing such a fun event!

Recently, a large group of ladies participated in TLWC’S Build-A-Bed Service project through the Sleep in Heavenly Peace Organization. What a great turnout for a great organization!
In addition to the 30 members & husbands who volunteered, members donated both bedding and cash to help provide beds to children in our community. Did you know that 1-2% of children from all areas and income levels in greater Colorado Springs, Northern El Paso County, and Eastern Teller County don’t have a bed to sleep on? Thanks to TLWC members' efforts, more of them will!
Building Beds for Children
First Responders Thank You Project
Caring in Action provides bag lunches for working homeless neighbors in need at the Springs Rescue Mission. Each month we make 40 to 50 lunches that include a sandwich, chips, fruit, drink, and sweet treat. We then deliver them to the mission to be given to those who are heading out to work. For more information on how you can help, members can contact leaders, Maureen Morgan or Pam Cutcliff. Contact details are on the SOS/CIA Home Page.
Additionally, Below are several upcoming service projects you can volunteer for.
Food Drive for Tri Lakes Cares - Friday, Feb. 16, 11-11:30am, AFA Falcon Club Entrance (TLWC luncheon) OR Monday, Feb 12, 3-6pm, Maureen Morgan’s Home (1090 Lake Woodmoor Dr. Monument)
Donations to Tri Lakes Cares drop significantly after the holidays. TLWC will be collecting items to help restock the pantry. They are grateful for all donations, but you may want to consider items which are direly needed at this time: canned meat, pasta sauce, pasta (no spaghetti please), white rice, canned fruit, peanut butter, soups, sugar, dog food, feminine hygiene products, incontinence pads, deodorant ( men’s & women’s,) denture cream/cleaner, dishwasher pods. Please no corn or green beans, as they are over-stocked on those items. Cash or check (payable to Tri Lakes Cares, not TLWC) are always great appreciated as well. Thanks for your generosity. Contact: Pam Cutcliff.
March Service Project - Date/Time/Location TBD
Pam has contacted two organizations about a hands-on group project; waiting for confirmation details. Contact: Pam Cutcliff
Build-A-Bed, Sleep in Heavenly Peace – TENTATIVE DATE - Saturday, April 6, 9:30am-Noon
By popular request, we’ll again take to the saws, drills, sanders, and hammers to build beds for children in our community who go to sleep on couches, blankets or even the floor because their families cannot afford to purchase a bed. No experience needed. Can’t help build? Go online to donate sheets, pillows and comforters for the beds we build. Contact: Maureen Morgan
