From Dave Long:
My family moved to the Ranch in the spring of 1983.
We were heavily involved in the very first all volunteer activities committee. Our very first events were the "Chili Cookoff," "4th of July Celebration," "Highlands Ranch Days," "50's Party," and "Halloween & New Years Dances at the Mansion." I DJ'd all of the New Years or Halloween parties at the Mansion and as a matter of fact my involvement in the activities in the Ranch got me into the DJ and music business.
Also..... four of us got together and published the first "Highlands Ranch Herald" from our homes in the Bayfield subdivision. I have attached the first copy of the newsletter (Association Newsletter Volume 1, January 1986).... and I have four more editions if you're interested. (The Ranch was so small.... you'll see from the newsletter that we had a "phone tree'...as the Internet wasn't quite ready for us.)
Also I've attached a photo of me DJ'ing the Halloween party at the mansion.
Our kids spent their whole life in the Ranch and it was one of the best decisions we've made.

Because of HRCA I made one of my best friends swimming. Thank You for creating a wonderful place that not only allows us to have healthy lifestyles, but allowing us to make new friends with the programs.
