Red Solo Cup

Good Morning, Arizona!!

The weather is "perfect" for our big Solo Cup festival today.

The band "Hillbilly Deluxe" did an excellent job of keeping us entertained with their high energy country/rock music.

Couldn't have asked for better weather.
Over 650 tickets sold for lunch.

Thank you to the Robin Perry and the kitchen crew for the good meal.
Sloppy joes and Robin's special coleslaw. Yum!

Amazing Dental was really dressed for the occasion.

Saturday night in the Adobe Room.  Most of our houses aren't really big enough to comfortably play cards with a group of 6 or more but we can head up to the clubhouse to play.  Looks like quite a few groups had the same idea.   

Say hello to a couple newcomers at the front desk.
Victoria Unger (left) and Sandra Hopson (right).  Welcome aboard!
Jan Dickie at center is NOT new and has been a valuable employee for several years.


We have two identical cat trees both in front of a window but for some reason, Kat and Mouse like to wrestle to determine who gets this one.

Announcement Reminders

Palm Creek will be sending Care Packages to troops deployed overseas this holiday season. Become part of our gift-giving. When you do your grocery shopping, pick up a couple items from the list below. Drop them off in Activities in the ‘Troop Area’. At the end of the month, we will gather volunteers and package up the goodies to send to the troops. If you know of someone currently serving in military, bring their address.

  • ·        Cookies (homemade are best)
  • ·        Slim Jims
  • ·        Cans or small packages of nuts
  • ·        Bean dip or cheese dip for crackers
  • ·        Trail mix
  • ·        Granola bars
  • ·        Tins of tuna, sardines, etc.
  • ·        Inc oxide cream (tubes only)

A ‘giving tree’ will be set up in the Activities Office with paper ornaments listing the age and gender of each child needing a gift. We ask that you pick up an ornament starting November 19th. Take a tag, register it with Activities, purchase and return it to the Activities Office. Or, if you would rather make a cash donation, we will do the shopping for you. Gifts may be placed in a Christmas bag, but please do not wrap them, we will do it for you. The deadline to return them will be Wednesday, December 5th. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Volunteers are needed to wrap all the presents. If you would like to participate, please call Sherin Kidd at (303) 845- 0956 to be placed on the schedule.

Once upon a time, a long time ago.....Palm Creek Golf & RV Resort was born.  I believe the year was 1998-1999. 

Floyd and Lola Freeman were some of the early residents.  Here is a picture of their site at #217.  

They could easily see the clubhouse from their site.

....with a clear view to the mountains.

Don and Flo Fillipi were among the first true homesteaders.  Here is their rig parked at site 907.

Flo says folks were greeted at the gate by someone sitting in their car as the guard shack wasn't built yet.  Thank you, Flo, for sharing memories.

We salute our veterans and current troops as well.

Wow.  Barb Poole made another attempt at capturing the beautiful lighted palm trees.  She always enjoys a challenge.  Thank you, Barb.  This is a keeper.  I hope the people at Sun corporate get to see this.

A friend asked me if my cats had outgrown their kitten antics yet.

The answer is NO.  Still no privacy in the bathroom!

Would one of our local camera experts please send me a beautiful photo of the Palm Tree lights?  They are exceptionally lovely this year and I'd like to post a photo here.  I tried with my cell phone but it just doesn't do them justice.  *** club members....please share!!

Don took the drone out this morning to look over the new houses in the north 40.

Here is the same field just a year ago.  Quite a difference!!
