LEATRICE Dewey is given a LIFETIME HONORARY Membership to SVE Pickleball

Lifetime membership awarded to Leatrice Dewey:

Over the years you have been a devoted and selfless member to our club as well as to many other clubs in the SVE community. Pickleball, Bingo, Golf and Tennis have all benefited from your complete willingness to help wherever help is needed. Someone simply needs to mention that there is a fundraiser or event to be held and you are the first to ask “what can I do?” When there are socks and donations to be delivered to help the less fortunate, you are there. When the annual pie auction to benefit MS is held, you are there. Whenever the Tennis Club needs your famous egg salad sandwiches to sell, you deliver. Words cannot express the appreciation we have for the generous gift of your time and loyal friendship. You are a great asset to the entire SVE community.

In honor of all that you have done for our club and to make our community as a whole a better place to live, the Sunland Village East Pickleball Club is proud to extend to you a Lifetime Membership.


The SVE Pickleball Club has awarded Buzz Gilbreath an honorary LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP for all of the time and effort he has put into making our club more enjoyable.

Giving lessons, coordinating round robins, introducing people who are “New to Pickleball” to the game coupled with your easy-going and approachable demeanor has helped our club grow to become the largest club in the community.
