In the month of May we ran a promotion to help provide to our local homeless veterans camp. Wow, what an experience! Our community came our in force for this cause! We ended up having a van STUFFED full of goods for them. These brave men and women sacrificed so much to provide the freedoms we are experiencing, this was just one of the many ways we plan on saying thank you to them!
The most wonderful time of the year is here! The different local activities are plentiful for us here in Arizona during the Christmas season. Beautiful weather combined with a family friendly community makes for the happiest season of all.
