Hello to everyone, and we look forward to having you as a visitor, guest or prospective owner here at Desert Gardens. We are beginning our 2016/2017 winter season and our park continues to be outstanding with rave reviews. We can’t tell you how pleased we are and once again we give thanks to our work campers, seasonal guests and owners of sites who have added their hard work, friendly assistance, respectfulness, and outgoing personalities to our beautiful, award winning park.
Social activities in our park have always been a strong point to a pleasant stay at Desert Gardens. Last year was no exception as our Activities Committee and Activities Directors put together a well rounded fun schedule of events.
The word outstanding just can’t describe the huge success we had with the enormous amount of varied activities and classes presented to keep us all busy and happily entertained. From “ A to Z” we had ATVing, bible study... Zumba and everything in between.
There isn’t much that wasn't scheduled and the outcome was terrific! Our Gourd carving group has grown enormously with now several classes of different techniques to choose from. Stained Glass is still very popular also because of the excellent assistance given by mentors and instructors and the fact that tools are supplied for beginners who can determine for themselves if they wish to add this to their list of hobbies. The quilting and sewing groups always have a wonderful time with their individual projects and also a group venture which sometimes is a gift or auctioned off at one of our events. The Genealogy Class is growing as more of us become more inquisitive of our heritage. Swimming, hiking, or just plain relaxing, you will find so many avenues of interest offered, and we welcome you as a possible mentor for a craft or subject we have not approached yet.
Our Ladies Luncheon, dances, bingo, craft sales, auctions, garage sales, water color painting, quilting, sewing, fitness and many other classes, crafts and planned events are informative, healthful and entertaining. Our Game Room houses the library, card tables and free Direct TV (ONE OF 3). This is the place folks gather early to have a coffee and get a “heads up” with what’s going on in the park or in the news, just prior to planning their active day with golf outings, atv riding, hiking, aerobics or a craft class. Evenings in our large Activity Center there is usually a gathering of card or game players, or perhaps a dinner or other special event. Tag alongs to dinner shows, casinos, restaurants and places of interest are also available. An all the fixings free hot dog night is held a few times each month. In addition, on Sundays there is an Ice Cream Social to benefit our activities and events. A “Meet and Greet” cocktail hour is always a good place to meet new friends and catch up with park neighbors and a visit from our Welcome Committee will provide you with a warm greeting from folks who know the area and can offer directions or other information.
The onset of evening provides us with a backdrop of incredible, colorful sunsets. Each one unique and colorful with “Oooos and Ahhhs” heard as the sun disappears behind the mountains as we continue with our fire side gatherings. There is lots of picture taking going on and it seems as one sunset is trying to outdo the last evening's. Millions of stars then appear making the sky an even more spectaular starry, starry night. Life is definitely good!
