I’ve had so many people ask me to put the picture of the great horned owl back up…….so here it is.  If you want to save it to your computer, just right click on the photo and choose “save as”.  Then you can name it and put it in your photos.  Again, thank you to Bill and Maureen for sharing the photo.

We had great fun at a surprise birthday celebration for Mona Conkle last night.  We all gathered under the north pavilion for a fantastic pot luck dinner followed by some karaoke, cake, & ice cream.  Happy Birthday, Mona, from all your friends here in the park.

Happy Hour gatherings, block parties, and social gatherings of all sorts will soon abound as more and more folks return.  It is always fun to see folks have a happy time with friends old and new.  Let’s keep Palm Creek a friendly park.  Get to know your neighbors and welcome new people so they too feel part of the Palm Creek family lifestyle.

It is quite obvious that RVers are on the move this time of year as evidenced by our overnight parking area.  It was almost full this morning when we drove by.  If these folks knew how much FUN we have here, I don’t think they’d drive any farther!


We see work progressing on the new dog run at the north end of the park.  I’ve heard it will be for the larger dogs so they have enough room to exercise and play.  When I looked back at this photo, I saw how pretty the sky was that morning and how unusual it is for us to have ‘clouds’. 


I like to post photos of the wildlife here in the desert of Arizona.  Check out this pretty critter we found at the back of an RV that was parked here for the summer.  WOW!!  Does anyone know what kind of spider this is?  Certainly is colorful.

This past Tuesday was the first bus trip to the Fort McDowell casino.  Marilyn Roemer is our ‘tour guide’ again this season and had her usual plethora of jokes to entertain us and treasured gifts as door prizes. There will be a bus to Fort McDowell each month and in addition, two overnight trips are planned as well.  Sign up in Activities.  The cost is $10 for the monthly trip which provides your bus transportation, $10 in slot money upon arrival, a great $1.99 breakfast, and a discount for bingo players.

Meanwhile, back at the park, the softball players are gearing up for the season.  We see them out practicing several times a week now.

AND… always… we play and romp in the sunshine, our landscape crews are busy at work to make our park beautiful.  Flowers are arriving by the truckload and planting has begun.
