Season Opener Social Event – Anyone with interest is welcome!
Flying Samaritans Spring Social/New Member Information Event
Saturday, September 19 5:30pm –8:30pm
Our season opening social/new member information event is scheduled for Saturday evening, September 19, at the Tempe Aunt Chilada’s restaurant located near the Arizona Grand Resort starting at 5:30 pm. (This is a different location than the last few which were at the Squaw Peak Aunt Chilada’s.) We’ll be there until about 8:30pm, so join us when you can. We have a room reserved and appetizers will be provided. Aunt Chilada’s is offering us their happy hour drink prices for this event. These have always been great social events, but they are also an opportunity to help introduce someone new to our group. If you have interest in our group, please know you are welcome. If you know of prospective members, be sure to invite them. It’s a great and fun way for them to know more about us. As always, no Samaritans treasury funds will be spent on this event.
The Arizona Flying Samaritans is a volunteer, nonsectarian, health oriented organization serving and working with the medical,
optometry and dental personnel in remote areas of Baja California Mexico to help supplement medical care for the local populations. The Flying Samaritans is a not-for-profit organization and includes chapters which operate 3 clinics in Baja Mexico. The Phoenix Chapter, based in the Phoenix, Arizona area, was formed in 1991.
Currently the Phoenix Chapter provides medical and dental care in Baja California Sur, Mexico at Puerto Adolfo López Mateos and dental care at Laguna San Ignacio. The Tucson Chapter provides medical and dental care in Baja California Norte at El Rosario. They also do a driving to clinic in Agua Prieta just over the border in Sonora Mexico
The Flying Samaritans rely totally on volunteer participation. We currently use medical physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, emts, optometrists, chiropractors, pharmacists, interpreters, pilots and helpers.
We also have volunteers who help as interpreters, so it is not necessary to speak Spanish in order to volunteer your talents as a medical professional, dentist, chiropractor, pilot or helper.
