A Legacy Needs to be Finished…The Center Stage!

Come closer…We have some exciting news just for our family and friends!

A legacy needs to be finished…The Center Stage in La Posada’s Central Park.

Beginning in early 2019, the La Posada Foundation will be launching a capital campaign to build out Central Park to include Center Stage. We will be seeking donors to assist us in making this feature available to the campus community.

Center Stage in Central Park

Center Stage is a covered stage offering 115 raised seats for guests under a retractable awning with overhead lighting.

The Center Stage offers the community a chance to enjoy al fresco entertaining safely and comfortably under the Arizona skies. From outdoor movie nights to Zumba classes to sing-along’s, Center Stage offers new cultural options to enjoy.

Living in Arizona is about being outside…The La Posada campus needs a place to celebrate living in the Sonoran desert.

Some Christmas Gifts Require You to Look Down!

The present is here
It is always here–now.
I close my eyes
and be the one with the present.
The present—a gift.
I breathe in the air around me
I breathe out.
My breath joins other breaths.
I ponder.
My eyes are wide open.
I see this glorious creation.
Here! NOW!
THE PRESENT.
THE GIFT.

-The Gift by La Posada resident Norma Strait

Living with Gratitude, Appreciation, & Balance…View La Posada’s 2017 Annual Report now!

Gratitude can transform common days into Thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.

-William Arthur Ward

La Posada at Park Centre’s 2017 Annual Report focuses on the retirement community we have created with residents, employees, friends, and the Southern Arizona community that chooses to embrace gratitude, appreciation, and balance.

We have a deep sense of gratitude for our founder, Tucson Medical Center, which gave La Posada its start and then let it go so that it could thrive as an independent, not-for-profit organization. We give thanks to all the residents and employees who were part of La Posada at Park Centre over the years and gave so much of themselves to La Posada.

Each generation of residents and employees leaves a part of themselves here at La Posada to improve and enhance the lives of others. Our culture of philanthropy and our commitment to the larger community beyond our boundaries reflects our appreciation and gratitude for why La Posada exists. We are dedicated to continuing to lay the groundwork for the future so that others may also enjoy and experience what we have found of value in our lives.

La Posada’s environment and culture, full of nature and smiles, plays a significant role, too. Recognizing the beauty around us, in nature and in people, can’t help but lead to gratitude. Giving to and caring about others is part of life at La Posada, and this attitude fosters a sense of appreciation and gratitude.

Gratitude also builds a sense of community. It’s the feeling of belonging to something greater than ourselves that brings meaning and value to each of us. We invite you to read our 2017 Annual Report, which highlights what we have done together to create a community that embraces gratitude, appreciation, and balance in our lives.

La Posada Inducted Into Sahuarita Unified School District Hall of Fame!

On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, the La Posada at Park Centre retirement community was inducted into the Sahuarita Unified School District Hall of Fame.

This distinguished honor was bestowed upon La Posada because we provide opportunities for Sahuarita students to have meaningful employment while working around student schedules to support academic success.

Also, as part of employment on our campus, La Posada residents intentionally invest in local students by providing them with significant scholarship support for their college education after high school graduation.

The La Posada organization is receptive and eager to assist with new education programs such as the first National Math and Science Initiative in Arizona and provides internship opportunities in a variety of fields to local students: nursing, culinary arts, health/wellness, and hospitality.

Finally, La Posada at Park Centre leadership and staff work collaboratively with other local organizations to create positive outcomes for all students and the Green Valley – Sahuarita community.

First, thank you to all present and past La Posada residents for their dedication in continuing to support the employee scholarship fund at La Posada.

Second, thank you to all past and present Board of Directors, managers, and employees who planned and assisted with our community outreach initiatives in Southern Arizona.
