RV Snowbirds Drawn to Mesa, Arizona by Recreation
Mesa, Arizona - Jim Freer has hands as creased and cracked as the wood he works inside a Mesa shop, teaching other retirees to mold the earthen material into woodcrafts. The 76-year-old retired pilot and postal worker says those hands are more dexterous today from the practice of teaching old hands new tricks.
Those same hands took Freer through the grueling elimination process recently in east Mesa during the 9th Annual Bud Walrath National Singles Shuffleboard Tournament last week at Mesa Spirit RV Resort.
Recreational activities in the East Valley have long been a beacon to retired, part-time residents who flock to the region for ballroom dancing, line dancing, horseback riding, shuffleboard, arts and crafts, swap meets and farmers markets. Many attribute the recreational activities with boosting the health and lifestyles of snowbirds.
