Ted Mason's Walnut Creek event was a family fun day
We just got back from the Family Fun Day at Walnut Creek, a new mid-range subdivision off Ten Mile Road near Hubbard being built by Ted Mason Signature Homes. It was a great turnout. We estimated 75 to 100 people made their way through over the course of a couple of hours. Ted Mason himself was on hand for the festivities, which included hot dogs and apple pie, live music by the Dan Sevy Band, cheerleaders, jumphouses for the kids, games, and of course, tours of the houses. He has two houses built currently, with 56 more coming. The houses will range from $280,000 to $350,000. The houses are clearly very well-built with high-quality materials and built-ins. There is a definite, Americana, old-fashioned country theme going on. The street going into the subdivision is called Heartland, and Mason had a huge American flag raised by crane with the National Anthem to kick off the event. Nicola, as chamber president, Kerri Avery, as chamber vice president, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Ted Mason and Steven Schrader, as City Council member Rich Cardoza was kind enough to do the honors. Of course, a lot of folks showed up out of curiosity, but I noticed there were definitely some serious buyers. It was a packed work-related day, as we started the day at the final day of the Kuna Farmers Market for Oktoberfest and a meet the candidates session. Then we headed over to Advanced Family Medicine, where they had a ribbon-cutting ceremony for their expansion, adding a new doctor, Molly Armijo, and adding 800 square feet of additional office space. Good things happening in Kuna.
