Hi Friends,

 

Here is the newsletter:  Things to Do in Arizona – July, 2021

 

I hope that this email finds you well and that you will be able to enjoy some of these activities.

 

If you should wish to continue to get the newsletter in the old format please let  us know and we can send it to you.  It is our hope that if we only send out relatively few emails in that format it will get through the spam filters.

 

Also, don’t forget to log into our Facebook Things to do in Arizona page for weekly updates and for a more interactive experience join our Facebook group which now has over 35,000 members! We share ideas about events, restaurants, places to go and we even have a weekly photo contest!  It is a really fun and positive group.    Here is the link to join us:  Things to do in Arizona Group link

 

On another note, I have been a real estate agent for over 30 years and it is my full-time business.  If you are considering buying or selling a home I would welcome your call!  You can also search for homes on my website at  www.OnlineArizonaHomes.com

 

I love getting feedback, so please let me know if you enjoyed any of these activities or if there are others that you think I should include.  Have a great July!!
