WEEKEND HAPPENINGS

I know many of you enjoyed the Gatekeeper’s when they performed for us in November. They are going to be part of the Sahuarita JROTC Massing of the Colors tribute to veteran’s ceremony on Saturday, January 17 at 10 a.m. at Sahuarita’s High School’s auditorium. All are invited—no charge. Unfortunately the man working on the patriotic CD became quite ill, so it is not done yet.

Were you aware there is a human trafficking problem in Arizona? If you’d like to learn more, there is an informational program being offered on January 17 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Green Valley Community Church, 300 W. Esperanza Blvd.
