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.

In April 2019, the La Posada Foundation launched its capital campaign to build out Central Park to include Center Stage. Right now, we are 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

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.

Dr. Manuel Valenzuela (Left), Superintendent of Schools at Sahuarita Unified School District presents La Posada CEO Lisa Israel (right) with the Hall of Fame Induction award.

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.

What goes great with ice cream during the Arizona summertime?

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

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.
