DREAMS Come True program now accepting nominees!

“The Future Belongs to Those Who Believe in the Beauty of Their Dreams.”  – Eleanor Roosevelt

DREAMS Come True is a program for area residents age 55+ that can make a lifelong goal become reality or fulfill a new but meaningful life experience that has been out of reach. A committee of community representatives with the staff of Posada Life Community Services and the Posada Life Foundation make selections twice annually from nominations received throughout the year.  The program is made possible by the Posada Life Foundation, and charitable contributions to DREAMS Come True are most welcome.

The 1st DREAM fulfilled came in the form of a trip for an area woman who longed to see two little granddaughters before her eyesight failed. DREAMS Come True was able to arrange the trip and a family reunion dinner.

The 2nd DREAM brings back memories for a Korean War-era Navy veteran. Kodiak Island is the destination and the veteran and his wife are excited to travel to Alaska where he can see the many changes that have occurred in 60+ years – and to search for what remains of that era of history.

The 3rd DREAM awarded allowed a retired teacher to spend her October birthday with her sick son in Arkansas.

A 4th DREAM was awarded to 2 seniors. One wants the thrill of flying again in a biplane; the other to tap dance in an on-stage performance in front of an audience.

A 5th DREAM was awarded to a young lady who wanted to live the thrill of a tandem parachute jump and to a hard working caregiver who wanted to visit the Grand Canyon National Park with her family members.

Do you want to help make someone’s dream a reality?

DREAMS Come True is NOW accepting applications for nominations until Tuesday, October 31, 2017!

Here are the guidelines needing to be fulfilled to nominate a worthy senior:

  • Minimum Age: 55
  • U.S. Citizen or legal U.S. resident
  • Unable to fulfill the dream on their own
  • Capable of experiencing the dream
  • Dreams granted to residents living in the following Arizona geographic areas: Green Valley, Sahuarita, Amado, Arivaca, and Tubac 

Please contact Ellen March, Director, Community Center, for further information at 520-393-6840, or read DREAMS Come True info & guidelines, and submit an application using the below links:

Now, there’s an app for the Green Valley, Arizona area!

The Connect: Green Valley app is a convenient source of information and solutions for people seeking life-enriching community services. This is one stop shopping, helping people connect with area health, wellness, and support service providers. This app is FREE and updated frequently by Green Valley community service providers.

Connect: Green Valley is an app (interactive application), designed to streamline your search for adult services in Green Valley. Initially funded by a generous grant from the Freeport – McMoRan Community Investment Foundation, Posada Life set out to create a portable and convenient “one stop” for locating and exploring adult services in Green Valley and our surrounding area.  Posada Life designed the application to be user-friendly and operate across multiple devices.

This application was designed based on three pillars: Learn, Locate and Listen.

Learning: Our education section, powered by our Inspired Living Institute, provides the user with targeted information on a variety of topics, all designed to educate the user and provide a solid foundation of knowledge.

Locate: Using the mapping feature, the user can locate services in the desired area, contact those providers and begin to build a plan of action.

Listen: Users may also send providers correspondence and feedback based on services provided.

Where do I find this free app?

On your desktop computer, visit the Connect: Green Valley website.

Let La Posada help you take the mystery out of retirement!

For some, retirement is filled with uncertainty.  For others, retirement is the time to live well, reinvent oneself, and create new memories through new friendships, travels, and “dream jobs” (volunteering)!

Retirement is the time to choose what you want to do and how you wish to live everyday. Where you choose to live in retirement needs to meet your intellectual, social, and physical desires. Where you choose to retire needs to create wonderful memories.

Donate Blood and Save a Life! La Posada Blood Drive is Friday, July 28!
Ice Cream and Music Friday Concerts start July 21!

What goes great with ice cream during the Arizona summertime?

It’s not hot fudge or the whip cream and cherry 🙂 …….

How about toe-tappin’ live music!

Take the time to thrive between monsoon rains and Arizona “winter” (sometimes, what we call our summer heat season) to get outside and enjoy music from great local bands.

Beginning Friday,  July 21,  the Ice Cream and Music Friday Concert Series returns to the Shoppes at La Posada!

This year’s concert series benefits and supports The Community Food Banks of Amado & Green Valley.  We are spotlighting this great cause because every year the local food banks mission expands to meet the food insecurity needs of the Southern Arizona community.  From past summer concerts, non-perishable food and monetary donations ended up helping our local food bank meet and fill the needs of their customers.  Your support of our concert series may assist a great friend, fellow workmate, wonderful volunteer, future scholar, or kindly senior fill their pantry with food.

Also, all receipts earned at Posada Java during the concert hours ( 6 – 8 PM) will be donated to the local food bank too! So, go ahead and have that frosty treat and dance it off with your sweetheart or friends.

Who is performing at our 2017 concerts?

  • Friday, July 21, Les Roberts, vintage and contemporary Jazz.
  • Friday, July 28, Good Question, a band bringing their own unique beat to classic rock, country, and rhythm & blues
  • Friday, August 4, The Banjo Blasters, lively, banjo music  playing from swing to jazz
  • Friday, August 11, Two’s Company,  a musical/comedy duo performing country, big band, and soft rock
  • Friday,  August 18, The Dust Devils,  traditional and newgrass style bluegrass music
  • Friday,  August 25,  The Jukebox Junqies Band, MOVE, DANCE, and FEEL the music of yesteryears. Change in concert time! This concert begins at 5 PM.

Free admission to all concerts.  Donations of non-perishable food items and cash accepted at the concerts for The Community Food Banks of Amado & Green Valley.

All concerts begin 6 PM in the courtyard at The Shoppes! If monsoon rains visit on our concerts dates, we move the concert inside to Posada Java.

The Shoppes is located at 665 South Park Centre Ave., Green Valley, AZ 85614.
