Community Garage Sales Continue Friday & Saturday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Sun City Summerlin Community Garage Sale heads into its second week this Friday and Saturday, October 16-17. Sales will begin at individual residents’ homes at 7 a.m. and may continue to 5 p.m. If you’re hosting a sale, it is OK to advertise your event with homemade signs, however, please remember to take the signs down when your sale is over. From all accounts reported to the Link, October 9-10 sales went well and some of those residents who had a garage sale will be looking to see what treasures await in their neighbors’ garages this weekend. Others will continue their home sales for a second time. For a list of some of the participating addresses, be sure to check the Link’s classifieds ads section on this website.

Hundreds Turn Out for Rubio Speech

Even though the presidential election is a year off, candidates are criss-crossing the country hoping to secure votes and caucus support. One of the Republican candidates paid a visit to Sun City last week (on Thursday, October 8) as nearly 600 Sun City residents and supporters turned out to hear what United States Senator Marco Rubio, R-Fla., had to say.
Rubio told the packed house at Mountain Shadows community center that preserving the American dream would take some new blood, and that the “politics of the past” will not secure a safe future for America and the generations to come.
He promised to repeal and replace President Barak Obama’s Affordable Care Act, as well as cancel a recently signed nuclear deal with Iran. Rubio spoke for more than 30 minutes garnering frequent applause.
Rick Harrison, star of the History Channel’s “Pawn Stars” and a local celebrity endorsed Rubio prior to the start of the speech, calling Rubio “the real deal.”
Nevada is an early voting state with caucuses in February.

16th Annual Photography Club Show Set for Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

If you're a fan of photography you won't want to miss the Photography Club's annual show.
