(NAPSI)—There are some people who will always lean toward putting off until tomorrow what they could do today. Procrastinating-and according to experts at the University of North Carolina, everyone does it at some time—may be something we do for good reasons.

Next month, the Town of Oro Valley will mark its 40th Anniversary since incorporation in 1974. What began as a small community of 2.4 square miles and a population of 1,200 has grown to a thriving town of 36 square miles and more than 41,000 residents. The town has grown, but we’ve also maintained a focus on core values and services.
Are you looking for great community events and entertainment? There are so many exciting events happening in Oro Valley over the next few months, it is difficult to keep track! The Town hasn’t always been this busy with large-scale events, which begs the question: What has changed?
“Exciting” is the word used by Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson to describe the approaching 2014 calendar year as the town continues to trend in the right direction following the nation’s hard-hitting 2008 recession.
