                         Greetings and Happy New Year to all! Another year has come and gone, and what a
                        wonderful year it was for our club. We hosted our first convention. We had a break
                        from our September Weekend. We had several day trips to Lake Mead, Pahranagat
                       National Wildlife Refuge, Boulder City train ride, and Mt. Charleston for a picnic in the
                      rain as well as an overnight at Buffalo Bill’s Casino in Primm for the Kenny G concert
                     and a weekend trip to Big Bear.

               We are committed to making 2010 as much funs as 2009. We have our September Weekend
back on the calendar. We are looking into another weekend trip to Big Bear or even the Grand Canyon. So
look forward to a great and fun 2010. I hope “getting actively involved in your club ” is part of your list of
New Year’s Resolutions. We need your support and p
articipation to make TCLV, your club, a success.

Editor’s Notes...Well, 2009 is over and done.    I have looked at my life timeline, and I see I need to get on the
ball if I want to accomplish my goals. Where are you in your personal life timeline? If you haven’t actually
done a timeline for yourself, I suggest you try it. It can certainly be an eye opener. It’s easy. Take a blank pa-
per and halfway down, draw a straight line from left to right. Now, plot your timeline. Begin with your birth
year on the far left and end with the estimated year you will depart this earth. Next mark where you think
the year 2010 is on your timeline. Now draw a vertical line from that point to intersect the horizontal line.
On the left side of that vertical line, list /plot all your accomplishments, milestones, etc., from birth to now.
On the right side list everything you truly want and hope to accomplish by the time to depart. Now look at
your timeline. Are you satisfied where you are in your journey? Are you on target? What do you need to do
to be on target? Give it some thought! Soooo many things I want to accomplish and soooo little time!
Good luck. Have fun. Enjoy 2010!

               Volunteering at Opportunity Village’s Magical Forest is one of
               the most fun and rewarding community service activities in
               which TCLV members participate. Members usually meet for
               an early dinner some place near the Magical Forest and then
               the group heads over to Opportunity Village to check in and
               get their assignments. November 21, opening night, was the
               Club’s designated day and thirteen members were there ready
               to serve.
               Beverly and Cherie worked the gift shop. Dan did crowd
               control at the entrance. Warren provided visitors site infor-
               mation. Barb, Blaine, John A, John M, Debbie, Marcy and Re-
               gena worked the carousel. Lydia and Jerry sold raffle tickets
               for a chance to win gingerbread houses made by different ca-
               sino chefs and chef school apprentices.
               Thanks to all of those who came out to give back to the com-
               munity at Opportunity Village.

The TCLV co– social chairpersons work hard to schedule fun and all inclusive activities. They also do their best
to “work in” activities which have become TCLV traditions during different seasons of the year. The Homemade
Cookie Exchange and Game Night activity Saturday December 12, at Cindy and Brian’s home, fits in the latter
category. Besides bringing some of their favorite homemade cookies to share and take home samples of their
favorite, attendees also brought a favorite game or played one of the games brought by others.
The group started off the evening munching on some great finger foods pro-
vided by hosts, Cindy and Brian, as well as Dan who slaved all day preparing a
full crock pot of beef barbecue. The first round of games followed as the
group split up into smaller groups to play the game they preferred. Brian,
                                Cindy, Blaine, Tony, and Marty moved to the
                                dining room table to play a board game.
                                Marcy, John A., Tara, Kristi and her friend
                                chose to play the electronic version of Uno,
                                while Dan, Debbie, Cherie, Lydia, Beverly and
                                Barb played the A to Z word game.
                               Cookie sampling fit in between the first and
                               second round of games. Snickerdoodles,
                               brownies, peanut butter, oatmeal, gingerbread,
                               holiday sugar and wedding cookies were but a
                               few of the batches on the cookie table. Don’t
                               forget there were still finger foods, chips, and
                               dips. Then it was back to more games. One
                               group opted to continue playing the game they
                               played in the first round, while the other two
                               groups moved on to Phase 1 and Boggle.
                               Before the traditional old fashioned holiday house party broke up, attendees
                               helped themselves to leftover finger foods and of course cookies of their choice
                               to take home for the remainder of the holidays. Unfortunately or fortunately
the “fine school days wines” were all gone by the end of the night and no one got to take any home.



                            Christmas Care Packages Received In Iraq
 Besides a social club, TCLV is also a caring and charitable organization. Over the years it has touched the
 lives of people of different walks of life especially during Christmas, the season of giving. This past holiday
 season, TCLV chose to bring a little cheer to one of its own...Jeremy Wilson, who is serving his country in
 Iraq. TCLV members donated items or cash to purchase items on the wish list. Marcy and Barbara did the
 packing of all the items, and John M took on the responsibility of getting the care packages mailed. A week
 before Christmas, eight boxes filled with personal items, hand sanitizers, games, candy and hot drink mixes
 were on their way to Jeremy and his platoon mates in Iraq.
 The early part of January, John M and Marcy announced to the Club that the care packages had made it to
 Iraq and were now in the hands of Jeremy and members of his unit The Club is awaiting further news and
 possibly pictures. Thanks to everyone who donated items or cash to fulfill their needs.

                                      Holiday Party at Dean’s Place

The annual Christmas Holiday Party took the Club to Dean’s Place. Attendees had the op-
tion of bringing a gift not to exceed $20 and participate in the gift exchange. The evening
started off with a cocktail hour and followed with dinner.       Although there wasn’t that
                                       much stealing during Sneaky Santa, Cindy did grab
                                       (and lose) a glass vase from Lydia, and the red wine
                                                              with glassware changed hands
                                                              three times. Beverly went

                                                              with gift certificates when
                                                              their names were drawn
                                                              in the holiday raffle. As
                                                              always, the food was
good as was the company.




                                                      Lydia, Cherie, Blaine, Cindy and Brian had a great time
                                                      cosmic bowling at the Santa Fe Station Casino the day
                                                      after Christmas and burned off some of the holiday
                                                      calories. Lydia’s effort to get the group a lane in the
                                                      “no kid zone” did not work, and so they had to put up
                                                      with bowlers (parents with their kids) who did not ob-
                                                      serve bowling etiquette. This of course is the major rea-
                                                      son for our poor scores...except for Brian, the champ
                                                      whose three-game total was 527! Total game scores for
                                                      the rest of the group were as follow: Lydia 364, Cindy
                                                      310 , Cherie 302 and Blaine 253. Some of our group
                                                      could have used bumpers like the kids on either side.
                                                      They had bumpers on their alleys that allowed what
  should have been gutter balls to hit pins, pick up spares and even get strikes! Wait a minute -is
  that Brian's secret? Regardless of all obstacles, and frustrations, the group had a great time and got some
  exercise to boot. By the way...except for Cherie who had other commitments after bowling, the group
  and Barbara (none bowler) stopped off for a small bite to eat at Coco’s in the casino.
