Recycling Update - August

While not currently available at Anthem you can recycle aluminum cans at the Pinal County Recycling Center on Adamsville Road in Florence or at the Main Street Park in downtown Florence. Used cans are recycled and returned to a store shelf as a new can in as few as 60 days. A consumer could purchase basically the same recycled can from a retailers shelf nearly every 9 weeks or 6 times a year. Today the amount of recycled cans is about 1,665 million pounds/year. This recycling of cans saves 95% of the energy used to make cans from virgin ore. For each pound of aluminum recovered, Americans save the energy resources needed to generate about 7.5 kilowatt-hours of electricity-enough energy saved each year to meet the lighting needs of a city the size of Pittsburg, PA for six years! Recycling one can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours or the equivalent of 1/2 gallon of gasoline.

Bring your favorite beverage and some snacks or hors douerves to share and have a great time dancing to the tunes of The Tom and Jerry Band. This dynamic duo with talent and harmony vocals perform the best in classic rock, country, blues, pop and any other musical genre. Water, ice, plates and napkins will be provided. Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in the Florence 4th Annual 4th of July Freedom Parade at Anthem!

Darla MacInnes stopped by and made an offer we couldnt refuse. She took all the flowers from our Prop Room and created beautiful, new floral arrangements for the ballroom. The arrangements are extraordinary! They beautifully showcase the colors in the room and the pictures behind them. Everything just pops! See for yourself the result of Darlas vision and talent. Thank you, Darla for the generous contribution of your creativity, time and talent!

Volunteer Extraordinaire
Here is what we all know: Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. It is considered as serving the society through your own interest, personal skills or learning, which in return produces a feeling of self-worth and selfrespect, instead of money. Here is the question: Does Ross McDowell volunteer because of his concern for the welfare of others or does his wife, Judy (Lifestyle Coordinator) favor him because he works so darn hard? The answer: Both! Ross is passionate when it comes to life and the betterment of our Community; what else would he do on a Saturday night all alone? Watch sports on TV, go to a movie, or drop by the Elks. No way he would rather spend his time with all of us! Here is what Ross does: Chairman of the Neighborhood Representative Committee & Reunion Representative Poker Club President Sun City Lifestyle Volunteer Committee and Chairperson for the After Events (Clean-up group) Thank you Ross, for your compassion, support, kindness and the ability to demonstrate to others how to love life

Other significant preferences included a cash bar and entertainment other than just a band. The Committee has begun planning a spectacular evening for you to bring in the New Year, including cash bars (including soft drinks), dancing and festivities! Tickets will be on sale at the Lifestyle front desk where you will select your table for the evening. More details will follow as the plans develop. If you are interested in helping the New Years Eve Committee this year, please let Pat or Judy know as soon as possible. The work has already begun and wed love to get you involved.

Mount Athos Restaurant & Holiday Inn Express & Suites

Anthem at Merrill Ranch continues to try and identify ways to support local businesses and activities in the Town of Florence. We arent alone in this endeavor! There are some local businesses that are also working hard to develop partnerships and allegiances that will encourage growth as well as unity within the Town of Florence and Anthem at Merrill Ranch. We are happy to announce a new partnership with Mount Athos Restaurant and the Holiday Inn Express and Suites. Effective July 9 Peter Koulouris of Mount Athos Restaurant is extending 5% off the total bill (excluding alcoholic beverages) to Anthem residents who choose to dine at Mount Athos restaurant. At the end of each month, they will match the total amount saved that month and donate a check for that amount back to the Anthem Community. The Holiday Inn Express and Suites is offering residents or visiting friends or family of residents a rate of $69.99 per night June through December and $79.99 from December through May. This is an example of how working together can develop into win-win relationships. As a resident of Anthem you can help by supporting these two businesses. Let them know when you are there and Keep Mount Athos and the Holiday Inn Express and Suites on your list of preferred businesses.
