Had a great time with Mark Borba, Ross Borba, Nancy Flynn and Dwayne Borba Berrett as Rob Saroyan and I walked them trough the new bed tower at Clovis Community.  It is really taking shape!  The flooring is beautiful, the countertops and sinks and electrical are all in.  The VIP suites are exquisite – with warm tones of plum, silver and taupe.
