The new Cotton Blossom Thrift Store now is open for business at 11851-D Marana Road.

Located between National Bank of Arizona and Circle-K service station, the store's current hours are 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Hours are likely to expand as the volunteer worker group grows.

Among the "gently used" items for sale are clothing, tables, chairs, hanging wall pictures, kitchen appliances, bicycles, washers, dryers and television sets. More household goods donations – like furniture, table lamps and glassware – are needed. No children's toys are being accepted.

People who want to donate any items or work as volunteers should check in advance with store manager Imelda Pines. The store's phone number is 682-1094. Items must meet resale and functioning standards, she explains.

Profits from store sales will be used for health-related educational programs sponsored by MHC Healthcare, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. The store is affiliated with corporate flagship Marana Health Center.

The Health Center has internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics, women's health, dentistry and pharmacy services at its 13644 N. Sandario Road location. The Health Center and its satellite clinic network serve 35,000 patients making 100,000 visits each year – up 400 percent from seven years ago, a release said.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
