What a Community!

One of the things making AP such a great place to live is the sense of community. Last night, Halloween, took that sense up a notch. Special thanks to Janet Miller who promoted the idea of a neighborhood trick or treat effort and even put a map of “treater” locations on a map published via our listserv. Thanks also to the many neighbors who “treated” the kids so generously. Donna and I bought candy while on our travels so we would be ready upon returning home. We had about 40 “trickers” and ran entirely out of treats.

There were many positive comments on the listserv; here is one: “That really was our favorite Halloween ever! Thank you, neighbors, for making our little trick-or-treaters so happy & showing them the value of a wonderful community and neighborhood. We are so grateful to raise our little ones here! P.s. The puppet show was such a treat for kids & adults.”

I feel so fortunate to live in such a special place.

I am a relatively recent Armory Park resident (2/16) along with my wife, Donna and our little dog Lulu. In our 7+ decades, Donna and I lived over 30 years in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to Arizona. We have been Arizona residents for 16 years before coming here including 12 in Green Valley and four in west Tucson. We love the neighborhood for its history, walkability and interesting residents. Lulu insists on walking every day so you may see us following her around and picking up trash to keep our neighborhood presentable.
