The Inns at El Rancho Merlita hosted a wonderful networking mixer for Local First Arizona on June 5. This charming eastside B&B was once the home of Merle Norman. Innkeeper Pattie Bell took great care of the attendees while they enjoyed the historic property and met other business owners. Mama's Hawaiian BBQ provided a generous donation of tasty foods and desserts including coconut shrimp and pineapple upside-down cake. Tucson Manager, Deanna Chevas announced exciting partnerships and events in celebration of the upcoming summer campaign, Independents Week.
