Coupon winner Pam Reece had the good fortune of being introduced to Orange by her fiancé, Jim.  He often visited his sister’s family, who moved to the area in the 1960s and fell in love with the city.

Once married, Pam and Jim bought their Orange home, where they have lived for 53 years.  The Reece residence is located an equal distance from the Plaza and Tustin and Chapman.

“I don’t have a car, so I walk everywhere,” says Reece.  “I love frequenting the many shops and restaurants like Kimmie’s Coffee Cup, Woody’s Diner and Rutabegorz.”

A devout Christian, Reece worked at Calvary Church of Santa Ana for 20 years and attended St. John’s Lutheran Church in Orange for 15 years.  “I’m passionate about Jesus Christ’s message to come to Him for rest,” says Reese, who appreciates being a member of the Orange community and the people she has met over the years here.

Reece redeemed her coupon at Matoska Trading Company, which offers Native American books, music and more.  “I love books and read a lot.  When I received my coupon, I dashed to Matoska and purchased Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and The Spirit of Indian Women.”
