The Olive Mill tour on February was a great success with 43 attendees. I want to thank Ibis Valles for coordinating it. The 30 minute tour taught us the history of how this farm started. I didn’t realize they had so many varieties of olives. Before lunch we were treated to plates of olives to sample. We had a nice picnic lunch and then the shopping began in their on-site store. It is worth the drive out there just to shop for a variety of olives and oils.
On February 22, Jim Scarlett hosted HRC’s Musical Instrument Museum Tour. It was a world tour that covered every continent with many countries having wonderful and interesting displays. Many musical instruments were hand made with a variety of supplies that were unique to that specific country. A remarkable museum developed by a “Target” CEO, with help from wealthy friends. If you haven’t already done so it is worth a day to attend, have lunch and take a tour.In March we have several activities planned for retirees. On March 14 SRC is planning a Cliff Castle Casino Trip. If you are interested call Yolanda Brown at 623-972-3970. March 18, SRC is hosting Spring Training Baseball Game between Arizona Diamondbacks and Seattle Mariners.
March 30 Mary Barkl will host the HRC Spring Pot Luck Luncheon at Sahuaro Ranch Park. Find one of your favorite recipes and bring it to share with other retirees. Baked ham, rolls, coffee, tea and water will be provided, as well as plates, utensils, and condiments. You may bring your own beer or soft drinks, but no glass containers. Come and join the fun.
We are trying to provide a variety of activities for retirees. If you don’t see something you would like, we are always open for new ideas. Just call me at 602 942 4235 or any Board Member.

The plans for our cruise are progressing. Several reservations have already been made. To get the cabin you want at the price you select, it’s not too early to make your reservations now. As we get closer to the cruise time, our travel agent and I will look into the means to travel to LA. We have a couple of options, including flying in and out of LAX or flying back from one of the other LA area airports to avoid the long lines. If we have a large enough group going, we will look into hiring a bus to take us directly to and from the pier.
