My weekend entertainment

For entertainment this weekend I'm going to do what I do every weekend - volunteer as a docent at the 390th Memorial Museum on the Pima Air and Space Museum.  It's a world class museum in our backyard and I meet people from all over the world every weekend. Come join me, it's great fun!

Ever wonder about the stories behind all those plaques at the GVR East Center? 

Take a closer look into the history of the plaques at the East Center and the people and clubs they honor. At least what history Green Valley News could uncover.

The Rose Garden at the GVR East Center is one of several notable landmarks in the area. What's your favorite local landmark?

A New banner Photo

Could we please have a new banner photo. We spent several years having to look at Kent Blumenthals face on every issue of the GV Rec News Letter.  He's gone He's done and He's Old news . 

GVR has so many other things that we could be looking at how about a photo of almost anything else

A GVR member survey conducted last year has led to a revision of the organization's mission statement. Assistant Editor Laura Jean Schneider details responses to the 14-question electronic survey with questions on topics including pools, facilities, pickleball, accessibility and the future.

What does GVR do well in terms of facilities and activities it provides for its members and what would you like to see improved or changed?
