Free Living Trust Seminar

Friday, Feb. 9, Lakeview Room, 11 a.m.

Planning Is Essential—Do You Have A Plan? Everyone should attend this seminar, even if you have a will or a trust. A good estate plan coordinates what happens to your home, savings, investments, and retirement accounts. Learn how to appoint someone to make healthcare and financial decisions for you when you are unable to do so. If you do not, a court may decide for you. Why a will is not enough. Why many people with living trusts will end up in probate. Learn how to avoid it. If you have your plans finalized, find out what may have changed, needs updating, or is still applicable in Arizona. Keynote speaker Attorney Richard M. Dwornik. Presented by Dwornik Law Firm. Must RSVP to reserve your seat, limited seating. Call 480-809-1014 or email [email protected].

TAD Management presents Ridin’ the Storm Out – Tribute to REO Speedwagon

Friday, March 8, Ballroom, 7 p.m.

Back in the late ‘90s the guitarist and founding member of Ridin’ the Storm Out, Rick Hunter, had the honor of playing and performing with REO’s founding member Gary Richrath for almost three years. Their chemistry was evident from their first chords played together. Moving forward to 2017, he decided to form an REO Speedwagon Tribute in search of players who loved REO’s music. After being in many successful tribute bands since 2002, he embarked on celebrating Gary Richrath’s contribution to music history by forming this band’s library of hit songs in a tribute for the fans, knowing the signature vocal harmonies and musical style were key ingredients to reproduce REO’s sound, the quest was a challenge, but achieved after joining forces with two unbelievably young, multi-talented musicians and two other seasoned players who brought all the pieces together to form Ridin’ the Storm Out – Tribute to REO Speedwagon. The name comes from the band’s first hit in the mid ‘70s—REO’s signature song that ends their shows. Ridin’ the Storm Out song list has a solid two-hour show they can perform with all the true REO live show hits the real band still plays at their shows. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, Jan. 31, in the Apache Room from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. After Jan. 31, tickets will be available at the HOA office.
