Al Morton spends his days working with veterans and volunteering at his Sun City Homeowners Association. His wife frequently attends a clay club, making pottery with fellow members.
The Mortons, from Texas, were drawn to Sun City because other family members had already retired there. They followed suit in 2004 and are now among the nearly 40,000 retirees there. Many zip along Sun City streets on stylized golf carts to one activity or another.
There’s plenty for seniors to do with eight golf courses, swimming pools, tennis courts and game rooms. It’s a lifestyle that sold droves of retirees on Sun City when it opened in the Valley’s western fringes in 1960.
