Unit 27 Activities
Fira Stout organized another Dine Around at Bob’s Steak & Chop House at the Omni Tucson National Resort for Wednesday, Feb. 19. Possibly because the date fell on a Wednesday rather than the typical Tuesday or because many residents had been to Bob’s with the unit a few years ago, the number of attendees (15) was lower than usual. However, the group was in its own room with three terrific servers. The steaks were juicy and tasty, as always. The diners overlooked the pristine golf course that would shortly host the PGA Tournament of Champions; several huge tents had already been set up for the event. If the normal conversation lagged, diners could look out and enjoy the view.
New Unit 27 residents, Katie and Tom Atkins, hosted the monthly Snack and Chat on Feb. 28. They were very gracious and welcoming to the rather large group of attendees. The weather permitted folks to congregate out on their lovely patio as well as inside. Having moved here in the late fall of 2019, they have obviously been quite busy. Their interior is beautiful and perfect for entertaining. Thanks, Katie and Tom!
As this article is written, we are all trying to do our civic best in the face of the COVID-19 virus. In view of that, the Unit 27 block party, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 18, has been cancelled. Likewise, the Dine Around to Scordato’s Pizza, scheduled for March 24, was cancelled. That was too bad, as March 24 is Don Erickson’s birthday and everyone was looking forward to a friendly roast. Undoubtedly, both events will be rescheduled in the future.
To my fellow residents and friends, take care and be well.
