Mark Your Calendars for Spring Fun Activities

Let me start by wishing everyone the best of 2018.

It is my great honor and pleasure to announce two new members to the Desert Lifestyles Committee. They are Coleen Shannon and Caryn Marchuk.  We look forward to their ideas and participation and being an integral part of our committee. Welcome.

Desert Ridge welcomed the LPGA Bank of Hope Founders Cup, which is held annually in March at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge’s Wildfire Golf Course. The LPGA Bank of Hope Founders Cup took place on March 13th–18th. As part of the pre-tournament festivities, Desert Ridge Community Association hosted a movie, Disney’s “Descendants 2” at Cashman Park on March 3rd.



The Farmers Market on High Street continues to be an exciting success. It takes place every third Sunday from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. through April 2018. We appreciate all our residents and their friends support of the Market as they partake of the varied foods, crafts, and other delights the Market has to offer.


Our recently past holiday celebrations were enjoyed by all. The Annual Holiday Trolley Tour and Lighting & Decorating contest were a great success. This is a tradition that has become a hallmark of the Desert Ridge holiday season.


Ladies Night Out continues to be a popular success, with more and more ladies joining in the fun as we go forward. The same can be said of the Sports Night Out, as it continues to grow in participation and popularity. The Ladies Night Out is held on the 2nd Monday through April 2018. Sports Night Out will be on the 3rd Tuesday of March 2018. The socials are for residents of Desert Ridge only. No guests are allowed.


The Coffee Club held on the 2nd Tuesday of every other even month gives our residents of our community the opportunity to come together and discuss matters of common interest and concern.  Please feel free to take advantage of this event.


The Easter Egg Scramble will be held this year on March 30, 2018, at Reach 11 Sports Complex. There will be a DJ and music as well as concessions. There will also be 3–to–4 Easter Bunny stations for designated age groups. The gates will open at 5:50 pm.

Lifestyles Committee meetings are the 2nd Thursday of the odd calendar months at 8 a.m., every other month. The next meeting is Thursday, March 8th. All are encouraged to attend and participate.  As always, we welcome comments and ideas from the fine people of our community. Look for further information in the eblast or go to
