2023-2024 Program Year Completed

Ken Wong | Published on 6/14/2024

The 2023-2024 program year was completed in April with Harry Ford’s presentation on the Saguaro Society. This capped an excellent year starting in October 2023 with six programs planned, scheduled and coordinated by our great Programs team of Bruce Hale (Chairperson), Diana Smith, and Jim Solon.


Also presented to members and SaddleBrooke residents was the February 6 Introduction to Hiking in the Desert Southwest presentation held at the DesertView Performing Arts Center, coordinated by Tim Butler.


A monumental bonus to club members was the videoing of each of these programs by our own Terry Heggy who videoed, edited, and posted all of the club’s programs to YouTube.  If you missed any of these programs, you could view them by accessing the website Documents Library, clicking on the Programs page, and opening the document titled “SBHC 2023-2024 PROGRAMS”, where links to all of these programs are listed.


Many thanks to Bruce, Diana, Jim, Tim, and Terry, as well as all presenters, for their valued contributions to our club programs.


The Program Committee is always interested in program ideas. They have an unfilled spot-on next season's calendar in January 2025. Viewing Terry's videos may spur some ideas. Contact Bruce Hale at:


to offer your suggestions.


Finally, Terry Heggy needs assistance if the Fall programs for the club are to be videoed due to some major filming commitments he has in the queue. The process of day-of-program videoing all the way through editing and posting to YouTube is very time consuming.


Terry needs two assistants to help with the editing role.  Although some experience in this capacity is beneficial, no experience is necessary, as he will provide you with instructions on what to do. Contact Terry at:


for any questions you may have, or just jump in and volunteer!
