The End of Our Rainbow
For someone to use that as a slogan expressing their feelings about the community they live in must take some strong convictions. Yet that is exactly the phrase Ravan Arasia came up with for her entry in the Slogan Contest held by Alpine Township in September.
In talking to Ravan and her husband Armando it is easy to understand how they come to feel that way. Some has to do with experiencing other communities in the past, most has to do with the kind, loving, and optimistic outlook they have on life.
Ravan and Armando live happily with their two daughters in Alpine Meadows, 3800 Fruitridge NW. They love the property they live on and have hopes of buying it. They take pride in where they live and find their community very family oriented. They are extremely happy with the Kenowa Hills School system which their oldest daughter attends. Ravan is a stay at home mom and Armando is a computer programmer.
Ravan's name was drawn at random from all who entered the contest. She expressed her excitement over winning a $100 gift card* to be spent locally just in time for Christmas, calling it a blessing. They chose to use it at our local Wal-Mart.
Ravan and Armando are a wonderful testimony of what makes home and community important and counting your blessings. They and many of us have found our home to be at the end of our rainbow.
