The Marana Rotary Club hosts its 10th annual charity golf tournament on Saturday, May 31, with proceeds to support Habitat for Humanity Tucson and its campaign to help build new homes in Marana.

The golf tournament is being played at Heritage Highlands Country Club.

As of last week, there were 100 players registered, according to chairman Dan Contorno of the Marana Unified School District. “We need to get to 120,” he said.

More sponsors are also welcome. The $1,000 sponsor receives a free foursome of golf.

Habitat for Humanity is in the planning stage for two homes in Marana, Contorno added.

“We are very excited to help with something we can see benefiting local community members so tremendously,” he said. “We plan on getting involved with the building after the tournament.”

Other Rotary tournament committee members are Josh Wright, Jenna Bartlett, Tonya Greenfield and T. Vanhook.

For information, call Contorno at 744-7214.

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.
