Jun 10

filed under: Living In Fountain Hills, Local Gems, Shopping and Good Eats

Fountain Hills really has some great restaurants, and like most¬† small towns we have the popular Italian, Mexican, Continental, and Chinese restaurants that you would expect. I think what you would not expect in Fountain Hills, and what we now have, is a Latin American restaurant and a very good one I might add. Owners Anthony and Carolyn Redondo opened the Sofrita restaurant on Read the rest of this entry »

Memorial Day . . . A Time To Say Thanks. . . A Time To Remember

May 27

filed under: Community Events, Living In Fountain Hills

As we begin a weekend of barbeques, picnics, celebrations of school being out, graduations and three day weekends can we stop for just a moment and remember what Memorial Day is about.

I don’t know how it turned into a three day weekend because its really about one day of the year. . . Memorial Day. For me it’s a time to remember the fallen, the heros, the dads, moms, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and friends that sacrificed their lives while serving in our armed forces for the freedoms and rights we enjoy each and everyday and sadly and all too often that we take for granted.

How can I stop with only remembering the fallen ones. How many of brave souls came home with lost limbs, post traumatic stress syndrome, can’t find a job or are among the homeless. Their lives will never be the same. I will remember them too.

Then there’s the children, the babies, the husbands and wives who will cherish the memories, endure the loss, and try to move on without the ones they could or would have loved so very much. I will remember them too.

On Monday, May 30th at 9:00 am there will be a Memorial Day service in Fountain Hills at the Fountains Hills Veteran Memorial site at Fountain Park. I will be there to honor those who have given so very much. I will be there to remember what Memorial Day is really about.
