  Difficult to believe, but here we are getting ready for our 2019-2020 ADOBE Membership Season. Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday we were wishing each other well for summer 2019. October has arrived, and our friendly neighbors from all over the United States are beginning to trickle in. Welcome back friends and neighbors.

  Food Alert – we are happy to report we have three new “food” businesses. They are: the “Waffle on Inn”, the “Gold Stallion Restaurant”, and “Oldie’s Ice Cream.” Also, the new and approved “Wahoo’s Restaurant and Bar” has moved further south on King’s Ranch Road. All yummy places I am told. Welcome to Gold Canyon and we wish you – like all businesses in Gold Canyon – success and happiness. Gold Canyon is a wonderful place to live, work and relax. My apologies if I missed any new businesses.

  Gratitude is extended to all who have participated in the Gold Canyon Bypass Petition drive. As of the date of this printing (mid-September), we have over 2000 signatures; we are aiming for over 3000. Thank you to the residents and businesses of Gold Canyon who have helped us in this most important effort. Special thanks to “The Gold Canyon Community Church”, “The Methodist Church of Gold Canyon”, and “Walgreens” on Kings Ranch Road.” I will be giving a full update on the Gold Canyon Bypass issue at the October, 2019 Membership Meeting.

  Our first Membership Meeting of the 2019-2020 season will be held on October 17, 2019, at the Gold Canyon Best Western. Social time starts at 6:15pm, and the meeting begins at 7pm. Our first presenters will be Mr. Bryant Powell, City Manager for the City of Apache Junction, and Gold Canyon’s own Mr. Roberto Reveles. Bryant and Roberto will be making a presentation on Proposition 432 – School Improvement Bond, and Proposition 433 – Budget Override. These are two very important voting issues for you to decide on. Please come to the meeting to listen, learn, and ask questions. A Q&A will follow the presentation.

  Please note, ADOBE is a non-political organization. Consequently, ADOBE does not choose sides on political candidates or issues. The program is presented as a courtesy to the public.

  I know we don’t get to see the beautifully colored falling leaves, the pile of crumbling leaves to jump into, or the smell of crackling leaves burning. Nonetheless, there is a tinge in the Gold Canyon air that tells us fall is here. For us it is a time for soothing relief from the heat, plantings, pumpkins, and good times outside. Enjoy your fall season – we are so blessed to be living in Gold Canyon, Arizona.
