7 Ways to Celebrate Fall in Rancho Sahuarita
- Enjoy Your Backyard
Fall evenings are the perfect time to invite family and friends over to sit around a fire pit or chimenea. Enjoy roasting hot dogs, making smores and telling stories around the fire while relaxing in the company of your loved ones.
- Capture Fall on Your Camera
Take a nature walk at the beautiful Sahuarita Lake. Take pictures of your family dressed in fall colors near the changing trees or in front of the gorgeous evening sunsets. Keep the kids busy with a scavenger hunt collecting fall nature items along your walk.
- Get to Know Your Neighbors
The Fall into Fall Resident Mixer on Friday, November 3rd, from 6:00 to 9pm is the perfect time to make some new friends. This night will include a special Fall Cooking Demonstration by Chef Chic. There will be complimentary appetizers and drink tickets are $3.50 each. This event is for residents 21 and older and Kids Time and the Pre-Teen rooms will be open for your child care needs. (Kids Time reservations are required however no registration is needed for the Mixer.)
- Talk About the Importance of Thanksgiving and Family Traditions
Thanksgiving is a special holiday focused on being thankful and spending time with loved ones. Consider the opportunities this day presents to teach children about the important values of Thanksgiving, such as thankfulness, gratitude, and family. Tell your children stories and traditions from your childhood Thanksgiving celebrations and keep holiday family traditions alive.
You can teach your toddlers the meaning of Thanksgiving at the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Toddler Camp on Thursday, November 16th from 10:30-11:30 a.m. This camp will include train rides, fall snacks and crafts and a Pumpkin Patch activity. This event is free and doesn’t require any registration.
- Take Time to Honor Those that Have Served in the Military
It’s important to remember those that have served and protected our country every day, but fall is a great time to give special gratitude and honor for the service and sacrifice of veterans and their families. Come help us do just that at the Veterans Appreciation BBQ. This free event will feature live music, family entertainment and lunch on Saturday, November 18th from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Parque del Rio.
- Give Back
Giving a little of your time to help others is a wonderful way to celebrate any season and fall is full of opportunities to do that. One upcoming opportunity to give back to our community is the American Red Cross Blood Drive on Saturday, November 18th from 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. To register for the blood drive, please call 1-800-733-2767 or log on to redcrossblood.org and enter the sponsor code as: Rancho. Please remember that identification is required to donate at all blood drives.
- Plan a Neighborhood Flag Football Party
Gather families from your neighborhood and meet up at one of the Rancho Sahuarita community parks for a friendly game of Flag Football. Reserve a Ramada at the Clubhouse and have each family bring a favorite dish to share for a casual after-game potluck.
Fall has lots of opportunities to celebrate, and countless ways to remember the reason for the season in your backyard!
