Potlucks and Parties
The Phoenix Sail & Power Squadron has three occasions when it gathers at a member's home to bring the group together for mainly a social event. They are the Ice Cream Social, Fall Potluck, and the Christmas Party. A brief general membership meeting is held at each except the Christmas Party.

Ice Cream Social
12 May 2007
Lusson's in Paradise Valley, AZ
The Ice Cream Social marks the beginning of the summer vacation season. The kids are getting out of school and families are preparing for their summer trips to escape the heat of the Valley. The Ice Cream Social also serves as a fund raiser for the squadron Educational Department and the last membership meeting until everyone returns in the fall. Those that stay behind head for the back yard pool or the lakes and sea shores to keep cool.
Although the group was smaller this year compared to prior meetings at the Lusson's, and thanks to challenge contributions and a successful raffle, over $900 was contributed for the squadron Educational Department capital equipment fund .
As the mountain shadows spread all enjoyed a variety of cool salads and ice cream. Graydon Peiples' slide show of a trip on the Trent-Severn canal system in Ontario, Canada was very informative and entertaining..
