COVER PHOTO: Empire Ranch, founded in 1876, is a
working cattle ranch in southeastern Pima County,
north of Sonoita, AZ. It was placed on the National
Register of Historic Places in 1976. In its heyday,
Empire Ranch was one of the largest in Arizona,
with a range spanning over 180 square miles. Its
owner, Walter L. Vail, was an important figure in the
establishment of southern Arizona's cattle industry.
The 29-room ranch house is currently under
renovation (re-opening in October) but the ranch is
worth visiting now. Stunning prairies and mountain
views make the trek along highway 83 to Empire
Ranch a spectacular day trip. Dine at The Steak Out
Restaurant & Saloon in Sonoita for
a real taste of the west!
an excellent meal

Managers NotesMaika'i Hawaiian Luau
We were treated to a delightful Hawaiian Luau on Saturday,
February 17, that was sponsored by the Roadrunner's. The
Roadrunner's pulled out all the stops in transforming the
clubhouse into a Hawaiian theme, complete with Hawaiian
Luau entertainment and a delicious Hawaiian dinner. The
director of this fun event was Mary Eckdahl. The program was
emceed by Jan McDonald. We were entertained by Donna
Dorland who sang Bali Ha'i. Hula Dancers (Maxine
Abelowitz; Erna Bulow; Barbara Elliott; Laura Felton; Jasmine
Lane; Nellie Webb; and Mary Eckdahl-instructor
extraordinaire) who danced to Little Keika. Guitarists Jeff
Leslie, Fred Thompson, and Nellie Webb, who performed
Margaritaville. Warriors (Denny Eckdahl, Russ Bulow and
Fred Thompson) who danced to YMCA. A ukulele
performance by Cyrus Roschlau who played Somewhere
over the Rainbow. The Hula Dancers made another entrance,
dancing to Blue Hawaii; followed by Dave Daniels who sang
Tiny Bubbles. There was another performance by the Hula
Dancers and the Warriors who together danced to Volcano.
The finale was a sing along for the entire audience to Aloha
Oe. I was very impressed by the extent to which the
Roadrunners went to give all an unforgettable night. After the
talented residents finished their performances, the
Roadrunners had scheduled the band, Soft Winds, (through
Bonnie Flint), to finish out the night so attendees could dance.
Of course, we would be remiss if we didn't thank all of the
volunteers involved who worked diligently behind the scenes.
The cooks were: Laura Felton, Donna Leslie, Donna Dorland,
and Kathy Boehem. The judges of the table decorations were:
Tracy Sallee and Carleen Roberts. Photo shoot: Jacob
Abelowitz. Volunteers who set up tables: Nellie Webb,
Maxine Abelowitz and Mary and Denny Eckdahl. Ice tea,
lemonade, and punch: Judy Cameron. Piano accompanist:
Charmain McCullough. Drummer: Jerry Kennedy.
Decorations: Jane Kamps, Denny and Mary Eckdahl, Ila and
Lynnette Forster, Margie Busa and Cathy Pochatko; and
wrapped tableware: Donna Dreher. I hope all who
participated were remembered here. We extend a heartfelt
Mahalo for a most entertaining and enjoyable evening!

Assistant Managers Notes
Happy March Rincon residents! What an unusual winter we
have had, or should I say we have not had, as it has been so
warm and we have set some new records.
We are still having some issues with security so I am
enclosing an article from a resident.
A Residents Story
Do you lock the doors to your house every time you leave?
How about your car in your driveway? On Saturday
February 3rd at 4:30 pm, in broad daylight, someone tried to
siphon the gas from my car in the driveway! I not only lock
my car, but alarm it. The alarm went off and scared the thief
off. Please protect your property! Also, when you are a snow
