Central California Honor Flight

Honor Flight 2015

On Oct 19-21, Bob and Chris flew to Washington DC, on Central California Honor Flight #8. As many of you know, Bob served in WWII in the South Pacific and the also in the occupation of Japan. Honor Flight was created to give WWII veterans a chance to see the WWII memorial in Washington. It was a great trip. The Honor Flight team is truly amazing. They flew 50 veterans from the central valley and their guardians across the country so we could all visit the memorials in DC. Upon our return, we were surprised with a wonderful welcome home celebration: a band, cheerleaders, and an honor guard helped the 2,000+ friends and family welcome the vets home. The welcome home most never got, but certainly deserved. This is a wonderful project I invite you to support: here is the website for more information

Neighborhood Update

Many of you have asked me if the shopping center across the street has been sold and if Di Cicco’s is moving. Yes the shopping center was indeed sold to a shopping center-focused real estate group from LA. And, according to Marco, Di Cicco’s is staying. Even though the new owners raised his rent. We are looking forward to having a vibrant shopping center in our neighborhood. It will be good for us and for Madera. We are also glad Di Cicco’s is not moving. They are great neighbors.

Thank you for your business. We look forward to seeing you soon!
