Memorial Day

After a moment of silence and prayer to honor those who sacrificed for our freedom, we enjoyed a wonderful potluck luncheon today.  Actually, it was our regular Tapas Tuesday affair except it was celebrated today in honor of the occasion.

Barb Poole set up tables and was anticipating about 40-50 people.  To avoid any last minute surprises, she set up for 80 people just in case.  Aha!!  We wound up setting at least three additional tables as over 100 residents attended!!  

Needless to say, the event was a great success......and the potluck portion was delicious!!

Looks like the month of June will definitely bring the triple digits but we'll still be able to enjoy the lovely cooler mornings.  Pickleball now starts at 6:30 a.m. to beat the heat.

Came across this "cute" baby finch waiting for his Mom to come feed him.
He certainly looks fragile.

The local Casa Grande Dispatch announced that the Promenade Mall has been sold to a company based out of New Jersey.  Let's hope they can pull in more business ventures.

CASA GRANDE — The Promenade at Casa Grande has a new owner.
Lamar Companies, a New Jersey-based proprietor of shopping malls, purchased the 125-acre shopping center on May 17. 
According to the company, the “open-air town center provides a vibrant destination for shopping, dining and entertainment.”
“Promenade at Casa Grande is the dominant shopping center in the market, and we look forward to implementing our business plan to further improve the tenant mix and occupancy of the asset,” said Frank Maresca, vice president of Lamar Companies. “This particular deal fits very well with our investment strategy, which is focused on acquiring undervalued retail assets with both immediate and long-term growth potential.”
