The women of the American Legion Auxiliary, Oro Valley Unit 132, invite women interested in joining the organization to attend their monthly meeting, scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 15, from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. at California Design Center/Studio C, 11085 N. Oracle Road.

Membership is open to women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces or are the mother, wife, daughter, sister or granddaughter of someone (living or deceased) who served during any period of military conflicts since, and including, World War I.

The American Legion Auxiliary is the world's largest women's patriotic service organization, with nearly one million members. Auxiliary members are a unique group of women joined in the fellowship of volunteerism, patriotism and dedication to veterans, military personnel and their families, and their local communities.

American Legion Auxiliary, Oro Valley Unit 132, is a relatively new unit; its charter was presented May of 2010. Members meet on the third Thursday of each month September to May at the same time and location listed above.

Now it is eager to meet other women who are interested in supporting the military and the community.

For more information, visit www.ovunit132.info or contact unit president Onita Davis at ovunit132@gmail.com or 229-1064.

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.
