From Jerry Flannery - CEO and General Manager
Summer is quickly changing into fall, and by now your children are back in school and another school year is underway. One thing is for certain, the activities in Highlands Ranch continue at a steady pace! What to do in September:
The HRCA Fall Activity Guide
has been delivered to your homes and is filled with all kinds of information and things to do from programs and classes to September events! One that I am sure will catch your eye is Highlands Ranch Days
! HRCA is proud to be partnering with the Highlands Ranch Metro District to bring this event to you at the beautiful Highlands Ranch Mansion. The event itself brings exhibits, reenactments and history back to life! Read more about it in the cover story.
We can’t forget the ever popular Doggie Splash on September 8! Bring your friendly dog out to the Recreation Center at Westridge and have them take a dip in the outdoor pool! Our Electronics Recycling and Paper shredding event will be held on September 15 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. As an added security precaution, be sure that you properly erase important data from all of your computers and electronic devices. And what would September be without our annual tribute to German Culture at Oktoberfest? This event is scheduled for September 22, so make your plans now to be there! The admission is free and will be held at Town Center South from 2:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. For all of these events and more, please check out our web site calendar or your activity guide.
Project Updates: HRCA was busy this past summer updating the facilities and enhancing the amenities within our recreational areas. The Northridge Tennis Pavilion has received a major overhaul. Some of the improvements have included new insulation and thermal equalizers to help with energy efficiency and temperature control. In addition, the lobby, office, and patio areas in the tennis pavilion are currently being improved and updated. Lastly, we have installed a new climbing wall to the Northridge diving well, a zip line to the outdoor Eastridge pool and an outdoor 3D Archery Range near the Backcountry Base Camp. Keep these added amenities in mind as you are thinking about new activities to try. Volunteer Spotlight:
