 “Grenitas,” combines Grant Road, Edison, and Juanita streets!!! On march 23, 2019, a block party for residents of these Catalina Vista streets brought almost 40 neighbors together to celebrate being neighbors. We welcomed new families who recently moved to the neighborhood and greeted old friends. Thanks Margaret Kish for organizing this event, and thanks to the CVNA Board members for your support.
 

Thank you University of Arizona Mortar Board students for your fantastic help on March 17. You worked extremely hard to clean up the debris from an extremely messy easement South of Grant between Norris and Wilson, for which our neighborhood extends our utmost appreciation. You are a great group of students. Lots of luck to you in your future careers.

Almost 30 Catalina Vista residents and friends enjoyed listening to Stan Maliszewski describe the amazing history of San Xavier Mission in March 2018. Construction of the mission began in 1783 and was completed in 1797. It is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona.

Stan Maliszewski, Catalina Vista resident and San Xavier docent, leads a tour of eager Catalina Vista residents and friends.
