The GVR Foundation
& Our Extraordinary
Community
By Anne Waisman, President, GVR Foundation
I live in an extraordinary
community. Green Valley has a
gentle climate, a distinct culture
of friendliness, volunteerism
and unending recreational and
educational opportunities. Green
Valley Recreation, Inc. makes this
possible, and now with formation
of the GVR Foundation, we are
Anne Weisman,
able help realize the vision of the GVR Foundation
President
GVR Board of Directors to help
address demonstrated special
needs within our community.
The primary emphasis of the foundation is to
support and grow the Member Assistance Program
(MAP). I have been speaking to recipients of MAP,
and am touched by the difference this program makes
in their lives. A recent MAP recipient put it best:
“Because of the help I get from MAP, I have been able to
weather whatever has come my way…not by the generosity of strangers but with a little help from my friends, my

GVR Board Approves
Abrego North Center Pool
Replacement, Enhancement
At a special meeting on November 9, the GVR Board of Directors
approved the repair, replacement
and enhancement of the distressed
Abrego North Center pool and spa
with an 8-2 vote.
Both GVR Board President Joe
Gunton and CEO Kent Blumenthal commented that the Board’s
approval to replace the pool with
an improved configuration meets
the needs of the Corporation as
a whole, and aligns with GVR’s
vision of becoming a premier retirement community to attract new
residents.
“Our overall duty is to address
the interests of GVR as a whole,”
said Gunton. “This is not an easy
standard as we can see from our
current facilities. We have a mix of
satellite centers and major centers

GVR and representatives from WSM Architects, the firm retained
to conduct a year-long
facilities assessment and
develop a strategic facility

fellow and sister GVR members for
which I am forever grateful.”
Unforeseen circumstances
have put some of our friends
and neighbors at risk. Some are
widows, widowers, veterans,
and the disabled. They are our
most vulnerable members. With
your support, they have one less
financial worry.
For 20 years, GVR staff has
done a fantastic job administering MAP. Last year the MAP
served 52 recipients, with a
budget of $20,000. The GVR
Foundation is committed to
growing this amount. Donations received before Dec. 31,
2015, will enable us to meet
the needs of MAP recipients in
2016. A donation of $475 will
provide support for one qualified recipient for the full 2016
year.
The GVR Foundation has a vision of future programs beyond
dues support to members who
may be underserved due to age,
health or transportation issues.
Our first step to expand services
beyond financial support is GVR
Engage!, a new collaboration
with Casa Community Services
for GVR members.
Since July, I have been meeting
with GVR Directors, club officers, staff, community organizations, and local businesses to
introduce the GVR Foundation
goals and objectives. Many of
you have questions. Here are
answers to Frequently Asked
Questions:
Q. Why does GVR need a
foundation?
A. The Foundation is able to
accept tax-deductible donations
from individuals and corporations. Additionally, the GVR
Foundation has a broad charitable and educational mission to
strengthen community well-being within the GVR membership
and the Green Valley Community.
Q. What is the GVR Foundation’s relationship with GVR
and how are you different?
A. The GVR Foundation is an
independent entity in support
of GVR’s mission and the Green
Valley community. For example,
GVR Inc. transferred to the
GVR Foundation operation of
the Member Assistance Program (MAP) and the Southern
Arizona Senior Games (formerly
GVR’s Green Valley Senior
Games). The GVR Foundation
now has stewardship of these
two programs.
Q. I already give to MAP
with payment of my GVR
annual dues invoice. Can I still
do this?
A. Yes. We have included a
donor card in this year’s dues
billing mailer. You may return
that card with your payment
and it will be forwarded to the
GVR Foundation. You will
receive acknowledgement for
tax purposes. Contributions to
the GVR Foundation will fund
MAP before being used for other
purposes. You may also donate
online at www.gvrecfoundation.
org.
Q. Can I volunteer to assist
the GVR Foundation?
A. We have a need for volunteers with special skills and
interests that can work on
different projects and events.
Please visit our website at www.
gvrecfoundation.org to complete
a volunteer form or call (520)
838-0151 to receive a hardcopy
volunteer form.
As we enter into a season of
generosity and giving, I invite
you to make a difference in the
life of a neighbor by making a
donation to the GVR Foundation. Thank you, in advance, for
your contribution! Every dollar
contributed is very much appreciated. With your generosity
of spirit, others will continue to
enjoy Green Valley’s rich amenities and feel the care of their
neighbors.

Griessel directs GV Tennis Club members in the video.
To place Green Valley
and GVR solidly on the
map as a premier 55+
active adult retirement
community, it has to elbow
its way into a competitive marketplace. GVR is
hoping its newly produced
6:25-minute video will do
just that by raising awareness among retirees and
elevating its status among
retirement communities
nationwide.
The new promotional
video, “Living Well in
Southern Arizona,” was
a creative collaboration
between GVR’s marketing
staff and Creatista, a video
and still photography
firm located near Madera
Canyon. While Creatista
is owned and operated
locally by Anna and Scott
Griessel, their projects
for various clients takes
them across the country
for short and extended
video and still shoots and
production.
The video highlights
Green Valley’s high quality
of life, and the amenities
available through GVR
membership, including
pools/spas and fitness
centers, pickleball, tennis
and other sports courts,
60+ clubs, live performing
arts, 1,000+ classes, trips
and tours, and the GVR
Foundation Southern
Arizona Senior Games held
every March.
The video also is posted
on GVR’s website (www.
gvrec.org) and Facebook
pages, and area realtors
and the local Chambers of
Commerce have been asked
to post a link to the video
on their websites. The link

What is the secret to
living a long, healthy life?
You might be surprised to
learn that staying engaged
socially and mentally are
almost as important as
eating right and regular
exercise.
A new forward-focused
class has been developed
by Casa Community
Services and Green Valley
Recreation and is being
offered to Green Valley
residents to help them
optimize their existing
abilities and set wellness
goals to achieve the highest possible quality of life
as they age.
The class is part of the
new Engage! program,
a collaboration between
GVR and Casa that offers
programs and services to
promote healthy aging.
Taught by Bill McCreery,
director of Casa Community Services, the class will
provide scientific insights
into aging and tips for using this knowledge to live
a healthier, longer life by
engaging in physical, mental and social activities.

Here we go full swing into
another peak season in Southern
Arizona! While we’re delighted to
have our many seasonal residents
returning, it also means that our
centers will be full of members
enjoying all of our amenities.
How many of you read Robert
Fulghum’s best-selling book,
“Everything I Need to Know I
Learned in Kindergarten?” Well,
it’s time to dust off that book or
reach deep into your memory
banks for a reminder to be kind,
patient, and take turns and
share while in GVR’s centers.
This will do wonders to create
a more enjoyable experience for
everyone.
GVR has 13 centers – 13! – for
your enjoyment, but during peak
season there are a finite number of machines in our fitness
centers, pools and other amenities. Please limit your use of the
cardio machines to 25 minutes
when another person has signed
up to use them. So take turns,
and when it’s your turn, move
to that machine immediately so
others aren’t kept waiting.
Another rule is that a person
surrender the machine when
their 25 minute cycle is up. You
may continue with another 25
minute cycle only if no one has
signed-up for the equipment.
It would be nice, however, if
you surrendered the machine if
someone comes in to use it, even
if you haven’t completed your
next cycle.
Of course, we all are uniquely
different and have our preferences, so sometimes there are
disagreements over running the
fans or keeping blinds up or
down. Fitness centers do need
circulating air, so please keep fans
on. While working out, please
use your “indoor voices” and be
respectful of those who want to

GVR will also discuss with the

GVR will invite qualified firms
to bid on the project. Once underway, the project is expected to

Employee of the Month
Richard Duncan has
been named GVR Employee of the Month for
November! Duncan is a
Center Operations Assistant (COA), who does an
excellent job of handling
situations that occur on
weekends and holidays
when supervisors are off
duty.
Twice in the same month
he tracked down the
owners and returned their
wallets and cell phones left
at our centers. One wallet
contained over $2,000
in cash and several credit
cards! The members were
so grateful! Another time,
Duncan helped resolve a
health issue at the Canoa
Ranch Center pool. He
made several calls to the
pool tech, and made sure
the pool remained secure
until the custodian arrived.
He often helps custodians set up when there are
special events, and staff is
pressed for time.
He consistently exercises
superb judgement and
makes excellent decisions
in the best interests of
Green Valley Recreation,
Inc., to ensure that all goes
well. Duncan was nominated by his supervisor,
Maureen McCarthy, and
by John Welch, facility custodian. Congratulations,
Richard!

GVR Volunteer Supervisor Maureen McCarthy

Consider Contributing to the GVR Foundation to Support MAP
“Staff at the GVR “Members Assistance Program” have truly been a great
help to us and we are really thankful!
May God help you to be very successful
in your campaign to help raise funds to
be able to help others such as myself.”
2015 MAP Recipient
“Just know that I am grateful and
consider it a blessing that there are
people in GVR that do make a difference for those of us in time of need.”
2015 MAP Recipient
West Center Office is always open
10 am-2 pm weekends and holidays
for all member transactions. The
application deadline is December
15, 2015.
MAP applications also are available
at www.gvrec.org, and the foundation
accepts contributions on its website
at www.gvrecfoundation.org.
A donor card along with a letter
from the foundation was included
in GVR’s annual dues invoices
mailed out recently. By combining
the foundation’s annual campaign
materials with GVR’s invoices,
the foundation greatly reduced its
administrative expenses so that a
greater percentage of contributions
goes directly towards the MAP and
other programs.
Registration forms for the newly re-titled Southern Arizona Senior Games will be mailed for the 2016 event in
late December with registration beginning Jan. 6, 2016.
Senior Games is celebrating its 32nd year in the Green
Valley community! The medals have been ordered and
we hope participants are gearing up for another fun,
competitive event! Each year, nearly 1,000 participants
from most US states as well as Canada compete in this
event.
Congratulations, again, to Jim Fitzgerald for designing
the participant shirt for our 2016 games.
The games, which take place during March, are open
to members and the general public with a variety of
events for active seniors ages 50 and older. Just some of
the events include: pickleball and tennis tournaments;
racquetball and volleyball; 5k run and 2k walk; basketball shoot; bean bag toss; weight and powerlifting;
bicycling; billiards; bowling; canasta; golf skills; and card
games, such as cribbage, canasta, Mah Jongg, and euchre.
Applications will be available at all GVR recreation
centers and information on-line at www.gvrec.org, follow
the sports link. The deadline for registration is Feb. 18.

VOLUNTEER roundup
Volunteer ‘Table Talk’ Workshops Begin in January
GVR again will host its annual
“Table Talk” workshops Jan. 5-16
at 10 centers for members who
are current or previous volunteers, and for those interested in
becoming a GVR volunteer.
All members are encouraged to
participate in the Table Talks and
offer their suggestions for how
GVR can improve the recruiting,
training, retention and recognition of volunteers throughout the
organization.
Following a national trend, the
number of volunteers at GVR has
been declining as a large corps
of volunteers begins to “age out”
and with many Baby Boomers
unwilling to make long-term
commitments because they are
busy enjoying retirement.
The need for volunteers at
GVR, however, remains constant
as they are the heart of the organization. GVR relies heavily on
volunteers to oversee pools and
fitness centers, assist clubs, serve
on the Board of Directors and
committees, and provide admin-
istrative support. A large number
of volunteers also are needed to
help with the GVR Foundation
Southern Arizona Senior Games,
held for three weeks every March.
To adapt to the changing
volunteer landscape, GVR has
instituted a flex schedule program
where volunteers need not signup for specific days and times,
but can be “on duty” when they
visit the pool or fitness center for
their own use.
Member participation in the
Table Talks will help GVR improve its Volunteer Program, and
refreshments and prizes will be

tion by infusing their own brand of driving, innovative,
tasteful and unique interpretations of traditional and
original Old-Time melodies and songs. Regarded as
one of the most influential hammered dulcimer players
and Old-Time fiddlers in the U.S., Baltimore’s Ken
Kolodner (formerly of the world folk trio, Helicon) has
joined forces with his son Brad Kolodner, a rising star in
the Old-Time claw hammer banjo world. The hypnotizing and groovy yet subtly complex combination of
hammered dulcimer and banjo has captivated audiences
across the country.
The Kolodners also perform on twin fiddles, the exotic
hammered mbira, gourd banjo, banjola, guitar and
vocals. Their two recordings have each landed near or at
the top of the Folk Music charts. Ken and Brad will be
joined by their frequent collaborator, double bassist and
Eastman graduate Alex Lacquement. Members $24/$20,

Pop styles and presents new arrangements of well know
songs. Members $42, Guests $45, General Public $50.

Moonstruck: Schumann & Schmidt

George Hanson, Conductor Laureate, 6:30 pm Preshow Lecture, 7:30 pm Performance
George Hanson, TSO conductor laureate, returns to
explore the supernatural, the moon and the romance of
spring! Robert Schumann’s Manfred Overture, inspired
by Lord Byron’s haunting poem of the same name,
and Symphony No. 1, Spring, inspired by the “spring
of love,” according to the composer, are a perfect fit
with the world premiere of the orchestral version of
Lunar Reflections by Heather Schmidt. Instead of five
movements, Schmidt says it’s in five “moons,” from the
delicate beauty of a February Snow Moon to the clangorous energy of a July Thunder Moon. Members $38/$34,
Guests $41/$37, General Public $46/$42.

Close to You: The Sound of Karen Carpenter
with Joanne O’Brien
7 pm Tuesday, January 12, 2016
Do you remember the first time you heard the voice
of Karen Carpenter? Do you remember the feeling
you had the first time you experienced that sound? Let
this show take you right back to that time and make
it a yesterday once more. This is a celebration of those
songs and “that” sound told through the velvet voice
of singer/actress Joanne O’Brien. Through a cavalcade
of iconic classics including “We’ve Only Just Begun,”
“Top of the World” and “Yesterday Once More,”
O’Brien illuminates the musical diversity and political
climate of that time in history when the world first fell
in love with the magical sound of Karen Carpenter.
Members $26/$22, Guests $29/$25, General Public
$34/$30.

GVR Eastern States Club
Begun in the 80’s, the GVR Eastern States Club is a social club with a
strong charitable connection. Its initial purpose was to bring together people of Green Valley in a social environment that had a common connection
through their original state of residence.
It was originally called the Tri-State Club with members from New York,
New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It has since grown into the Eastern States
Club and is open to all that are from states east of the Mississippi that
are not already part of another location-oriented club. However, we now
welcome all that would like to join our social events and participate in our
activities regardless of the original state of residence.
The Eastern States Clubs has social dinner meetings monthly November
through April that often include a cocktail hour, sit down catered dinner,
raffles and door prizes, and entertainment. It’s a great way to meet new
people and have fun.
For the past 20 years, the club has sponsored a Children’s Christmas
Party for the children of San Xavier Mission School with a visit from Santa
and his elves, gifts for each child, and a traditional turkey dinner. This is
our biggest event and very gratifying for members and the children, who
present a Christmas pageant for our entertainment. Through the generosity
of our members, the club has been able donate a sizable monetary contribution to support the school.
