Wednesday, March 28th at 10:00am  in the Fiesta Room.Many people would be surprised at how different our accounting is because we have a Reserve Fund. Did you know that when Sunflower buys buildings and equipment, the money disappears from our Balance Sheet? Even if you have not laid awake at night wondering about this, you may learn a lot from this workshop. The workshop is aimed at the Sunflower Board, PRAC and Finance Committee, but any resident is invited to come. You will learn the mysteries of invisible assets, the rise of obligations and the odd effect of spending reserve money. It is actually even more interesting than it sounds. Coffee and treats will be served.

2. MUSIC UNDER THE STARS: Rock to the classics from Desert Knights at Music Under the Stars on Saturday, March 24, 2018 from 5:30-8:30pm.  Bring your chairs, your snacks and your beverages (adult or otherwise)as well as your dancing shoes to the lawn at the back of the Community Center.  You may also want to come a little early and have supper and/or ice cream from The Station at the grill to benefit the Fitness Club.  Enjoy the music and the weather and sharing the fun with friends and neighbors of Sunflower.

8. CASINO TRIP: Our spring casino trip is coming!!!! We are planning our trip for April 9TH. We will be going to Casino del Sol. Most of you probably know this is a local casino, so it will take less time to get there. However, they do not fund a bus. The cost for this trip is $10. The comps they are offering are $10 in free slot play and $16 in a food voucher. The voucher can be used in any of their food locations. We will depart from Sunflower at 9:30 in the morning and leave the casino at 2:30. We will not be signing up at the desk in the usual manner.  We will be selling tickets for this trip on March 24 from 10 to 12. We will also sell on April 3, if needed. We cannot accept checks ---cash only-- please bring $10 bills, if possible. THANKS! If we do not get enough people to fund the bus we will cancel and your money will be refunded. If we are going, and you cannot attend, you need to find your own substitute. We won't be able to refund the money because we'll be paying for the bus with that money. Last time we went there, it wasn't a problem. We expect that we will have enough folks!

9. VILLAGE CENTER EASTER SUNDAY HOURS: The Village Center will be open from 9:00am to 2:00pm on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018.

PICKLEBALL NEWS: Gaylen Waynar and Billy Lackey teamed up to win silver medals in Men's Doubles in the 4.0 skill/60+ division and Bernadette Bruner won a bronze medal in Women's Doubles in the 4.0 skill/70+ at the Super Senior International Pickleball Tournament at El Mirage, AZ. Good going!  Congrats!

11. TELEPHONE SCAM: Please be aware of a telephone scam circulating. A person is calling stating to be your grandchild and is in jail and needs your assistance. Never provide the caller with any information, like your grandchild's name. According to Marana Police Department as long as you are not a victim, there has been no crime committed.  If the voice on the other end doesn't sound like your grandchild, disconnect the call and then call your grandchild.
