When using the Dog Run near the main entrance, please be considerate of the residents living in that area.  1.  Keep the barking to a minimum especially early mornings and late at night.  2.  If using your golf cart, please keep your speed down to reduce the amount of dust.  Your cooperation in following these rules are very much appreciated and the residents will thank you for doing this.

Notice of Cancellation – Both the line dancing classes, pattern class & couples dance class will not be held between Christmas and New Years.  The next classes will be Jan 2 in the Hole in the Wall at 10am and 1pm respectively.

The Lost & Found box in the Activities Office is overflowing.  If you’ve lost an item, please check with Activities.

Hikers!!  The hiking group will officially start on Wednesday, Jan 3, 2018.  We will meet in front of the Activity office at 8am and our first hike will be close to home at Casa Grande Mountain.  It will be on a trail that is rated easy.  How far we hike will be decided that morning by the group.  Future hikes will be posted in Activities as well as an interest sign up sheet, although it is not necessary to sign up to go on a hike.  I am a relative newbie to hiking but wanted to keep the group going here at Sundance so I welcome suggestions and assistance along the way!
