    We moved to Festival in November, 2013 from the Seattle area where we resided for 31 years and raised our family. Tony retired from UPS in 2010. Sue mostly was a stay at home mom, but has worked for the Washington affiliate of Blue Cross for the past eight years and continues to work from home. We live in Festival year-round, are sports fans and remain loyal to our Washington teams. We also love to cruise.

    Our first visit to Arizona was 10 years ago. After visit-ing Trilogy we could envision ourselves retiring in an adult community. We continued to travel to Arizona annually, visiting and staying at as many adult com-munities as we could while we planned for retirement. Each community has something different to offer, but after staying at Festival twice, it became obvious that it was the best fit for us.

    One of the things we enjoy most about our community is meeting and making friends from all over the coun-try. We have a great neighborhood and get together regularly for breakfasts and happy hours at the Indigo Grille.

    We both enjoy the gym and the fitness classes as well as the pool. Tony golfs as much as he can and also works part-time at the Indigo Grille. We are members of the Brew Crew and the Hiking Club and made the trip with the Club in March to the bottom of the Grand Canyon Tony by foot and Sue by mule. It was an awesome experience for both of us! We are looking forward to rafting the Colorado River with the Hiking Club next April.

    We have three married daughters, a grandson who is almost three and an eight-month old granddaugh-ter, all living in the Seattle area. When our grandson comes to visit, he loves riding in the golf cart with his Guppa.

    Once Sue retires next year (514 days according to her retirement countdown clock), we plan to spend time traveling the country by motorhome, visiting sports stadiums and breweries and crossing items off our bucket list. I cant lie I also look forward to being able to escape heat every summer.

    We have no regrets about our decision to move to Festival. We thoroughly enjoy the active adult lifestyle and look forward to becoming more active in 514 days!!

    Susan and Tony Holcomb


    Finance Committee Volunteer SoughtThe Board of Directors is soliciting a volunteer candi-date to serve on the Resident Finance Committee. The committee works closely with the Staff in reviewing the financial operations of the Community Association. This includes the monthly financial review process, the Re-serve Study and reserve investment process, the Annual Audit, and Operating Budget process.

    The Board of Directors anticipates filling the vacancy on the Finance Committee effective September 1, 2016. Committee members can anticipate attending the Monthly Finance Committee Meeting, currently held on

    the second Thursday of each month in the Sage Center Conference Room. In addition, there will

    be situational meetings to discuss budgets, audits, and other community financial topics.

    Resident members in good standing who are interested in serving on the Resident Finance Committee should submit a short application letter requesting the ap-pointment to the Committee. In this letter, the individual should outline their qualifications and experience, and express why they desire to serve on the Committee.
