Memorial Day Thank You


Estrella is a community involved in the support of our country's veterans. Many former and active duty military families live within our community and the close proximity to Luke Air Force Base is a reminder of those who serve.

With Memorial Day approaching, we want to recognize and appreciate our military veterans, as well as all active servicemen and women. While we celebrate this day of remembrance with our friends and family, don't forget to take a moment and remember the sacrifice that every member of the United States military makes - many of them putting their lives on the line to defend our country.

"Please join us in remembering our fallen military members," said Bill Olsen, Senior Vice President and Division Manager for Newland Communities. "We are all aware of the commitment our troops make to our country, many of them are our neighbors, and any way that Estrella can show its appreciation is fully embraced by this community. We would like to give a collective and resounding thank you to our veterans and our active military."

Throughout the year Estrella hosts events and fundraisers to celebrate our troops. In the past, the community has hosted an annual Salute our Troops Run in the Fall. Proceeds from the 10k run, 5k run/walk, and family run benefit the Military Assistance Mission (MAM). Additionally, many residents volunteer with military nonprofit organizations such as Fighter Country Foundation, an organization focused on the supporting programs and services at nearby Luke Air Force Base that aid, support, and honor Airmen and their families in need.

You can celebrate those who serve this Memorial Day at one of the many events located through the Valley. To find events, visit or
