Season’s Greetings from the Inn Artists!

Does your artistic expression and ingenuity take flight during the holiday season?

As sparkly and shiny Christmas decorations descend onto the La Posada campus,  resident artists mix past and present memories into thoughtful holiday wishes filled with soulful ideas needed in today’s  complex world.

The Inn Artists, La Posada resident artists,  exemplary works fill the hallways, common areas, and grounds throughout our retirement community. Their artwork defines La Posada’s whimsical campus and gives our senior living character.

This year,  the Inn Artists want us to share their holiday greetings and wishes with our blog audience. Their greeting cards offer a great array of Happy Holiday greetings.  Some reflective of the southwest culture, others offering “new” ideas of simplicity and kindness in a now “connected” world.

Enjoy our resident artist’s holiday wishes!

Below, Kit Humphries reminds us about the simple idea of home….All are welcome during the holidays.

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 Casa 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 is expected to be awarded in Spring 2017.

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

DREAMS Come True is NOW accepting applications or nominations until March 31, 2017!

Here is 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 of Casa Community Center, for further information at 520-393-6840, or read DREAMS Come True info & guidelines, and submit an application using the below links:
