Escape the Heat this Summer
by Connie Riter

Summer is right around the corner, so it's time to plan your summer getaways. We have set up a plan with Sinclair Travel Agency (on Main and Recker) and Free Spirit Travel (in Gilbert) that depending on the type of trip and the cost, they give us money back for everyone who makes reservations through me. Many of the trips sell out quickly and others don't get enough to avoid cancellation, so if you see something you are interested in doing, please don't wait to make your reservations.

Another Fun Filled Evening
at our Labor Day Barbecue

by Barb Nienkark

Our Labor Day Barbecue was attended by close to 90 residents and by the laughter and chatter, it was obvious that everyone present was having a wonderful time. Jim and Brenda Harris were our hosts for this evening with lots of help from just about everybody. It's always such a great feeling when, no matter what the occasion, there are so many of us who are willing to step in and step up. Jim and Brenda certainly appreciated all of the help. The perfectly fried, "finger lickin' good chicken" was provided by Desert Harbor. There was a delicious array of just about everything else from salads, to vegetables, to potatoes and delicious desserts. Our thanks to everyone who worked so hard on all of the wonderful side dishes. Karen Cormay in Lot #2 was the lucky winner of our 50/50 drawing. That certainly was a great "welcome to Desert Harbor" win for her. All in all, without a doubt, our Labor Day Barbecue was a huge success.
