The Quail Creek Critters Club is one of the oldest and largest chartered clubs in Quail Creek. Its beginnings date back to 2008, and since that time it has been actively involved in the community, advocating for all the pets and pet owners who reside in the community. It is in charge of managing the community dog park. The POA is in charge of maintaining the dog park.
In recent years, the Critters Club has grown dramatically. In 2019, it experienced its largest enrollment of members to date. There were close to 100 members. Yet, in 2020 the membership again broke all existing records. By the end of 2020, there were close to 200 members involved in the club. This is a growth of 100% in just one year! This means that there were more than 350 residents and 240 pets involved with the club.
The Critters Club is off to a great start in 2021. In January alone, the membership grew significantly over the 2020 numbers for January. At the current time, there are close to 135 members compared to only 30 members at the same time last year. Another interesting fact is that the number of member donations to the club has grown tenfold in just the first month of the new year. We are looking ahead to a great year for our resident members and their pets, who will be a part of this vibrant and service-oriented club.
The Quail Creek Critters Club (in a normal year) provides an active educational and social program for its members. In addition, the club assists with pet locating and finding within the community. Our website provides pet related information to any resident who has questions or concerns about the pets in our community. Speaking of our Quail Creek community, it provides many volunteers for The Animal League of Green Valley (TALGV) and many of those same volunteers are members of the Critters Club. Ultimately, our members provide a voice for the many pets that have no voice within our community. We care and we show it. Our members are advocates who support all of the pets and pet owners in the community.
Since 2020, the club has been led by a strong group of resident volunteers. The club is managed by a group of caring residents who form the Critters Club leadership team. The team is led by Paul Riggins, president. In addition, supporting and advising the president are residents Al Olbeter, Robert Marshall, Kay Allen, Bill Oldread, Karen Morey, Jerry Pinson, and Gordy Johnson. In addition, there are over 35 Critters Club members who volunteer to assist the club with the many events they hold or help sponsor during the course of the year.
The Quail Creek Critters Club is definitely a club on the move, and its voice is a loud and resounding bark!

The Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association has awarded the 2020 Roy Barnes Volunteer of the Year Award to Jerry Colbert.
Jerry is well deserving of this award. He has served on the Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association board for several years in various capacities. He has been membership chair on two occasions, has been on the invitational committee for many years, and has served as an ex officio parliamentarian for the board. Jerry has also handled the board’s election process for several years and set up the Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association annual meeting slideshow that has informed members of the past year’s activities, and has been a liaison with the Arizona Golf Association. Currently, he serves as Quail Creek Men’s Golf Associations webmaster, in charge of the association’s new website.
The best way to describe what Jerry has done for the golfing community at Quail Creek is to ask various Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association past presidents and board members for their comments. Tom Bruno, past president, describes Jerry as someone who “will take on virtually any task requested.” He also describes Jerry as someone who “is constantly looking for different ways to improve or advance the system we use to facilitate the club’s activities.” Tom says Jerry “gets along with everyone, is supportive, and promotes goodwill in the club.” Tim Philips, past president, described Jerry as “someone who can find the missing information from past years. He is one of the most important people we have in making the organization run smoothly.” Craig Parsons, another past president, mentioned that, “Jerry is the idea man for the board.” Jim Lynch, tournament director, says of Jerry, “Jerry provides invaluable insight and input into all our governing procedures.” Finally, Shel Zatkin, current president states, “I do not know anyone who works harder for the QCMGA members. I wish we had more like him.”
Jerry has put in countless hours helping the Quail Creek golfing community. He and his wonderful wife Laura have been involved in many activities here in Quail Creek. We are so lucky to have the Colbert’s living in this community. Jerry has been the digital voice/face of the Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association for over 10 years, and it is quite fitting that the 2020 Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association board has awarded Jerry the 2020 Volunteer of the Year Award.
