          VOLUME 18             NUMBER 5          AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2009

The July Mixer was held at the Silver Springs Senior Living Community, and was co-hosted
by Valor Hospice Care. The event was very successful with over 100 of our members
attending. A fabulous buffet of Mexican fare was provided by the staff at Silver Springs. The
tables sported sombreros and everyone seemed to be having a very congenial, networking
evening. The dining room décor was very “south of the border” festive for this Fiesta. We
thank all our friends at Silver Springs and Valor Hospice for planning such a wonderful
event. We continue to remind our members to RSVP as it helps the hosts with meal planning
and avoids embarrassing food shortages.

Kevin Jordan, President of the Chamber’s Board of Directors, welcomed the members and
other community leaders in attendance, gave a report of the Chamber’s activities, and
introduced our newest members. Each of the new members had the opportunity to give a
short speech about their business. Other members and guests were given an opportunity to
share their event information with the attendees.

We wish to say a special THANK YOU to our members who generously donated fabulous
raffle prizes. Our special thanks go out to: Walter Henderson, P. C., Lynn Robinson of
Long Realty, Betsy Mabry of Long Realty, GV/Sahuarita Chamber of Commerce, Climax
Engineered Materials, Parcel Plus, GVCCC, Commerce Bank, The Retreat at Santa Rita
Springs, and our hosts Silver Springs and Valor Hospice.

The first, but soon to be annual Tri Chamber Mixer, was held in August at the DeAnza RV Re-
sort in Amado. We had an attendance of over 200 people between the three Chambers of
Green Valley Sahuarita, Tubac and Nogales in Santa Cruz county. A beautiful array of finger
foods was provided by Esplendor Resort and Soto’s Restaurant, with desserts being provided
by Kokopelli’s Gelato and Widsom’s Restaurant. A bar was provided and staffed by Chef
Charles of Kristofer’s Restaurant. Kevin Jordan, President of the Chamber’s Board of Di-
rectors, welcomed everyone and introduced the Executive Directors and Presidents of the other
two Chambers, along with our co-hosts, Bob and Amy Solfisburg of DeAnza RV Resort. We
wish to thank all of the Chambers for the collaborative effort to support the business communi-
ties along the I-19 corridor and hope this is the beginning of a true business partnership.

We wish to thank our members who generously donated fabulous raffle prizes for both our
mixers. Our special thanks go out to: Custom Plus, Walter Henderson, P. C., Southwest Ad

                                    Protecting Your Home
Your home is your most expensive single purchase and it contains virtually all your possessions. More
importantly, it contains people you love. But others may still have keys to it, including those who built it,
previous owners and renters, neighbors, care givers, housekeepers, and others. Protecting your belongings,
yourself and your loved ones by rekeying the locks can give you piece of mind at a low price. Call one of
the numbers below to get a free estimate.
